Mardi Gras Pizza
We made a rare midweek restaurant visit tonight. The eclectic and locally-focused Fireworks Restaurant in Southtown Corvallis lured us in with a Mardi Gras menu and live music by Gumbo, a surprisingly talented, animated Americana band. I hope to recreate Chef Intaba’s Cajun Pizza: wood-fired whole wheat crust topped with andouille sausage, delicate Oregon Bay shrimp, zesty Creole tomato sauce and mozzarella. I can’t get enough of those tiny, slightly briny pink shrimp. They’re never tough like their jumbo cousins. I need to make more salads with them.
