Hi Linda,

Yes I agree with that pizza is a staple in America.
College age and teens do like pizza for sure. But then so do the baby boom generation like me. lol
Domino's Pizza chain started in a college town (U of M) in Ann Arbor Michigan. The owner became a very wealthy man.

Have a great weekend Linda,
Len

Hi Len,

If I fess up, I won't eat Anchovy Pizza, however I'm not sure about Squid, since it's never been offered at the Restaurant where I was eating.

After all, Squid by any other name is Calamari. Now, that's Italian!

Here's a little Appetizer of Calamari, you might want to try sometime...

Calamari

Ingredients

  • 3 cups vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 12 squid, cleaned and sliced into rings
  • 1 lemon - cut into wedges, for garnish

Directions

  1. Preheat oil in a heavy, deep frying pan or pot. Oil should be heated to 365 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  2. In a medium size mixing bowl mix together flour, salt, oregano and black pepper. Dredge squid through flour and spice mixture.
  3. Place squid in oil for 2 to 3 minutes or until light brown. Beware of overcooking, squid will be tough if overcooked. Dry squid on paper towels. Serve with wedges of lemon.

Hope you'll try it and let me know what you think. Personally, I love it!

Have A Great Weekend,

Phil

Hi Phil,
Hope you had a great weekend.
Thanks for another great receipe!

I did not know about Calamari, and that it actually is squid.
It sounds good judging by your receipe. I really like deep fried food! lol

I found some interesting information on Calamari (Squid):

The meat is firm and white with a mild, slightly sweet and almost nutty flavor. The squid ranges from one inch in size up to eighty feet, but the most common size for eating is less than twelve inches.

Although the tentacles are edible, the body is the prime section of meat which can be stuffed whole, cut into flat pieces, or sliced crosswise into perfect rings.

Squid lends itself to just about every cooking method imaginable and is often eaten raw in sushi dishes. Squid is available fresh, canned, frozen, dried and pickled.


Thanks again Phil I definitely will have to try this sometime! :)
