If you can’t make it to one of Fitzpatrick’s Friday Wood-Fired Oven Pizza Nights, try your own twist at home by grilling these ingredients on top of your favorite pizza dough.

St. Brendan’s Seafarer:

Place oven roasted salmon on top of a garlic cream sauce, caramelized onions, and top it all with mozzarella and feta cheese.

Suggested pairings: Fitzpatrick’s 2006 Sauvignon Blanc, 2003 Grenache or 2003 Pinot Noir

The Popeye:

Place bunches of fresh spinach softened into a garlic cream sauce with first a smearing of soft goat cheese and olive oil, then the creamy spinach, topped with a mix of provolone, jack and cheddar cheeses and toasted pine nuts.

Suggested pairings: Fitzpatrick’s Sauvignon Blanc, 2006 Chardonnay, or dry rose Sangre de Montana
