Menu Part: 
Entree
Cuisine Type: 
American
Serves: 
1 12-inch pizza, 8 servings

For an unconventional take on breakfast, try this peach pizza, which also features dried cranberries, goat cheese and cinnamon.

Ingredients

6 tbsp. unsalted butter
1⁄4 cup brown sugar    
5 fresh peaches, peeled, sliced
1⁄2 cup dried cranberries
1 oz. goat cheese
1 16-oz. ball pizza dough
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 tbsp. sugar
2 cups vanilla pastry cream
11⁄2 cups premade streusel crumb topping

Steps

1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

2. Melt butter and mix half of butter with brown sugar in large pan. Reserve remaining butter. Bring butter and sugar to boil and add fresh peach slices.

3. Slightly cook peaches in sugar for about 5 minutes. Just before end of cooking, add dried cranberries. Remove from heat and cool.

4. Work pizza dough into 12-in. round. If baking in pizza oven, place round directly onto wooden pizza peel. For standard oven baking, wire screen is suggested.

5. Mix cinnamon and sugar. Brush dough with remaining melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture.

6. Spread pastry cream on top of dough, then shingle peach slices in circular pattern on top.

7. Using slotted spoon, sprinkle cranberries over top of peaches without adding extra caramel. Finish by topping with even distribution of streusel crumb topping.

8. Bake at 400°F in preheated oven until crust is golden brown and crumb topping is toasted, about 18 minutes. Slice and serve warm.

While the multiple-choice questions on FoodService Director’s annual census surveys are a great way of gathering data on trends, I’ve always been rather partial to the open-ended queries. We can’t possibly think up every answer operators might have to a particular question, and it gives respondents a chance to show some personality as well. (A special nod to one cheeky operator’s not-quite-safe-for-work response to how they’re tackling shortened lunch periods—you made my day.)

So this year, for the first time since I’ve been at FoodService Director, I chose to include a very open-...

chicken dinner

For the last three years, we’ve hosted an event called Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner. We sponsor the local chapter of Future Farmers of America to raise the chickens, and we have to arrange all the transporting from farms to the distributor, which keeps the birds in a freezer until we’re ready. We build hype by having students vote on the proprietary spice blend they would like on the chicken. It helps the nutrition team get involved in the educational process and showcase local food purchasing.

Asian noodle soups are a popular lunch option at YouTube’s San Bruno, Calif., campus, says Trent Page, the GM at Bon Appetit Management who runs the company’s three corporate dining venues. But Page noticed an increasing preference for customizable dishes and vegan preparations among the 1,000 customers he feeds daily. Inspired by a recent visit to Japan, he introduced tsukemen to the menu—a dish that features most of the traditional ramen ingredients (noodles, eggs and vegetable garnishes) served separately so diners can mix and match. “Separating the components makes it more customizable...

We are no longer short staffed, ever. On a given day, missing two team members from a team of 50 would leave us 96% staffed. The actual choice of wording places a positive emphasis on those that did come to serve our guests and patients. We no longer use the phrase “short staffed”; this is a game-changer when we are challenging ourselves as culture facilitators or leaders.
