The guys at Animal make their own, but we’ve substituted store-bought garlic chili oil, which you can find online or in gourmet food shops. They also make an exquisite pizza dough that requires 48 hours of fermentation. Use your favorite pizza dough recipe, or purchase fresh dough from Whole Foods or your local pizza joint. And if you have a pizza stone, by all means use it.
1 large ball fresh pizza dough
8 ounces fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced and patted dry
1 red onion, diced
20 garlic flowers
6 tablespoons garlic chili oil
2 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
2 nori sheets, ground to a powder in spice grinder
2 ounces hackleback caviar
Stretch pizza dough out on oiled baking sheets. Bake in a 500-degree oven until top is cooked and dough is a light brown, about eight minutes. Top with mozzarella and cook until dough is a deep golden brown and lightly charred on the edges, at least five minutes more, until cheese is properly melted. Divide topping ingredients in half and scatter on pizzas so you get a bit of everything in each bite.
