RECIPES: Gourmet Pizzas

October is National Pizza Month. This most popular of American dishes started out as a primitive flatbread and cheese meal somewhere in the Mediterranean region. While pepperoni wins as America’s favorite topping, the folks at Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board—whose members make much of the great cheese that tops your pizzas—have developed some groovy recipes that let you defer the tried-and-true pepperoni, meatballs, mushrooms, onions and pepper for another day. So call your friends, tell them to bring the craft beer or artisan soda, and celebrate National Pizza Month in gourmet style. But before you hit the recipes, chow down on the history of pizza.

NEW PRODUCT: Alligetter Retrieves Hard-To-Reach Items


  People who drop one too many things down the garbage disposal may wish to spend $19.99 for the Alligetter retrieval tool. It keeps fingers and hands safe, and eliminates the “yuck” factor of reaching in to, say, the garbage disposal (according to research, there are more germs in a sink and garbage disposal than in a typical toilet). The Alligetter turns the retrieval chore into a kind of amusement park game, but instead of a toy, you get your spoon or jewelry back. The Alligetter is an ergonomic, trigger-activated grabber attached to a 12-inch-long handle with a directional LED light that shines into the area to help locate the object. A combination of a flap spreader, serrated teeth and grabbing tip can help remove rings, coins, large seeds, shards of glass and much more. The teeth are uniquely designed to pinch any foreign object and pull it out easily and quickly. (The gerbil, however, may not enjoy it.) The Alligetter can retrieve objects from under the stove or refrigerator, behind furniture and beds, even between car seats and consoles. According to the manufacturer, there is currently no product available to the consumer which incorporates an LED light and can easily and safely remove objects from a garbage disposal and other hard-to-reach places. Find it at Alligetter.com.

TOP PICK OF THE WEEK: One Girl Cookies


Chocolate mocha sandwich Cecilia and
cousin Louisa, filled with lemon cream.
One day, one girl decided to leave her career at the prestigious Barney’s New York fashion temple to pursue the artisan craft of baking. After two holiday seasons testing the waters by making tea cookies in her tiny West Village apartment, the girl, Dawn, rented professional kitchen space and began to look for a full-time baker so she could focus on business management and marketing. And she needed a roommate. One boy, Dave, came to look at the room, and coincidentally was looking for a job as a baker. He decided that he needed the job more than the room, so he took the position at One Girl. But one day, he got the room, too: The boy and girl married. Beautiful artisan cookies continue to pour forth, made with even more love than one girl imagined when she followed her heart and traded fashion for flour.

Charming, petite butter cookies, sugar cookies, shortbread and whoopie pies provide a compelling reason to have regular afternoon teas, special endings to lunch and dinner, and gifts to bring (or send). Of course, you need no reason at all: Everyone deserves a regular treat of handmade, top-quality baked goodness. Read the full review and imagine each bite until your order arrives.
