Bacon and Sweet Potato Galette

  This, my fellow pirates, was EASY and DELICIOUS. Wow…this recipe showed up in the Wall Street Journal a few weeks back (don’t judge; pirates need their financial news…) and I thought “huh…that’s one I might try.” They tend to have very complex recipes, or require crazy exotic ingredients that my truffle-oil-soaked co-pirate might have,…

Heavenly Grilled Pizza

Today we Galley Pirates are welcoming guest pirate Ann as she walks us through her Italian family’s homemade pizza recipe. On a grill! On a boat! Aaargh! Heavenly Grilled Pizza – so named for two reasons. I first created this pizza recipe on a Mission Trip to Ulaanbaatar Mongolia two years ago when my hosts…

The Ultimate Sailboat Galley: Pizza Pi!

Full disclosure: This is not a Galley Pirates recipe. This is a galley story too cool not to share… Never in my lifetime would I have imagined this: a sailboat turned New York style pizzeria…take out and delivery…floating right smack in the middle of paradise! But it’s true. And dare I say it’s the best…

Manchego Turkey Pizza

  If you’re still stuck with left over turkey and you’ve exhausted every turkey recipe you can think of, try this mediterranean style pizza. You won’t even know you’re eating turkey. The breast meat is freshened up by rolling in truffle oil and EVOO. And the Spanish Manchego cheese is the perfect compliment to tie…

Feta & Sun Dried Tomato White Pizza

It’s Galley Pirates’ pizza week! This is a beautiful, pungent and garlicky white pizza. Or by today’s restaurant trends, I think we’d call this a flatbread. Flatbread is just so much more hipster.* So, yup, let’s tag this with a flatbread search term and see if we can improve our page views. ; ) *How many of you cruisers consider yourselves…

Prosciutto & Arugula Pizza

Ah… pizza, pizza. We’re starting an entire category on pizzas because the varieties are infinite and they are very sailboat friendly. If you can get your hands on a pre-made crust you’ll be a good half hour ahead of the game. If not, check out this pizza dough recipe and make it from scratch. I happened…

Blue Crab Pizza

I remember a few years ago my daughter and her friends, home from college for the summer, decided they were going to make Crab Pizza. Totally cool, I thought. But her first question was not “where are the pizza pans?” Instead, it was “where are the crab pots?”  And they set off to catch their…

Sausage, Garlic & Green Pepper Pizza

Nothing beats the smell of pizza, with oodles of garlic, drifting out your cabin hatch into the fresh air while you’re sailing. Even on a hot day like today it’s sure to pick up the spirits of your crew who, you know, were expecting cold sandwiches. And it can be easier than making those sandwiches……
