One of the ingredients that go really well with clam chowder is bacon. The smokey flavor of bacon goes great with the freshness of clams and creaminess of the chowder. Since I don't like bacon, I bought hot sausage links instead since they also have a smokey flavor to them, and the oil in them goes great in the chowder. Ask for the pizza, since I didn't want to wait for the dough to rise and such, I bought a prepacked one. If you can find a pizza joint that let you buy pizza dough, you should definitely take the advantage of that since they make the dough fresh.
Saturday lunch consisted of Hog Island Co inspired clams chowder, truffle and cremini pizza and white sangria.
Simmer the clams in enough water to cover it, and save the broth. The broth or the clam juice is going to be used again for the clam chowder. Add a little bit of lemon to kill the fishy taste. After that, add all the ingredients in and lastly, add some milk and cream. Oh, and I added quail egg!
