A few years back, when Cynthia Leitich Smith was off to Vermont for the VCFA residency, I undertook an exploration of Austin pizza joints and pizza blogging: the rules were these: aside from a dinner salad prior to the pizza, my meals were pizza for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. For ten days. For the record, the first time I did it, I lost five pounds; the second time, two and a half.
Here's the inaugural post from 2009: A Pizza a Day and Other Weird Activities.
I tried this again January 2015, but posted only to my Facebook account
(I'll be reproducing the posts here along with this edition, with the term "archive" in the header). I also did it in July 2015.

This time, I decided to do something a little different, since I'm on the verge of exhausting Austin's specialty pizza places: I'm going to see how many pizzas I can make using various techniques. I'll also take a look at some of the places I've missed or have recently opened.

I also made a pizza in honor of our Klingon allies:
This one sort of drifted apart due to migration of the mozzarella, but it is a Klingon D7 class battlecruiser. The main hull was a green pepper, while the nacelle supports were red onion. The nacelles themselves, and the neck section, were scallions, and the bridge was a mushroom slice.
