Italian Beef Pizza made by Susan Swanson in Abt's BlueStar Ovens
Inspired by classic Chicago Italian beef sandwiches, this pizza was made with a garlic butter spread, Italian beef and spicy Italian sausage. Then, it’s finished with giardiniera.

Every other Wednesday, BlueStar culinary expert Susan Swanson brings her recipe-crafting prowess to Abt. As you browse the atrium, you might catch her tossing dough in the air in the BlueStar kitchen beside the Candy Store. With help from the BlueStar ovens—specifically, their double electric wall ovens. These masters of high heat can turn pizza dough to crispy yet fluffy crust in just 45 minutes.  Don’t believe us? Come check out Susan’s creations yourself! Slices are free to both customers and employees.

She’s happy to share her recipes and inspiration, too. This pizza afficionado graduated from culinary school in 2012, and has been crafting creations with top-tier appliances ever since. Her go-to tips for pizza making? “I try to inspire people to get creative in the kitchen”. That’s why she goes beyond a traditional tomato sauce and mozzarella mix. “I turn handhelds and sandwiches into pizzas. Think chicken satay and gyros. I want people to do things outside of the box.”

If the kitchen in the picture looks familiar, it’s because these BlueStar ovens are the same ones we use on the weekend to make our fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies. We make over 250,000 every year, so you know these cookers can handle the toughest jobs around.
