    Jamey came up with a dish, Mike put pizza it to a challenging shape.

  • Cybertron765

    "Don't buy a pizza stone because the dough won't rise." I'm sorry sir, but I believe you might be using pizza stones incorrectly somehow.

  • SlowmovingGiant

    love the duality- 1 was small pizza dough balls with toppings outside (croc) and the other was large pizza dough balls with toppings inside (doughnuts)

    Proper pizza? There's no such thing. Anyone who claims to have "the" pizza recipe is a liar.

  • smalls9852

    Lol I'm guessing Barry didn't make it to this challenge because he was going to make pizza ice cream

  • trdi

    WTF was that. No more guests like this...

  • Karthus

    "pizza doughnuts" you... mean a calzone?

  • Stalwart Shinobi

    Good one Mike! I thought Jamie's would have won, maybe for once his balls should have been smaller and on top of eachover

    I watch sorted with a couple friends and we catch up every fortnight on vids and we all agree Jamie is an incredible 'normal' he has really grown from the meat guy stereotype and I'd pick him to cook me anything if given the chance!!!!

  • Everart

    This episode should have been called Karma Battle and Jamie won it.

    Mike winning when he arguably only did 40% of the work is a bit... questionable. But the judges decision there, I assume Ben'd of shot someone before he allowed a win if he was the decisionary, lol.

    If you guys do more episodes with restaurant owners you should put a bet on the outcome. The winner gets a meal at the restaurant where the two who don't win have to work at the restaurant for a whole day

    Loved both, but Jamie’s plating, though epic, man, couldn’t he have put the middle one right in the center *sobs* haha #OCDalert

    What is the smack thing that Mike does to the basil? To me it seems the food processor will accomplish the same task. ?

    Please please do one of these with Uncle Roger and egg fried rice

  • bloemundude

    Did the basil taste infiltrate into the sauce on the croquembouche? I always dice my basil and make sure it's "IN" the pasta sauces at home. Then again, I'm a big basil fan.

    I LOVE that Sorted recipes make it onto the menus so we can actually taste them even if not skilled enough to make them!

  • jjschwartzkopf

    Jamie's was better. Mike's plating looks like "Pizza Da' hut" from Spaceballs.

  • walter906_ffg

    They couldn't remember Mike's name, ouch.

    You get that consistency by being bad at making pesto and breaking one of the most important rules: never use any kind of food blender, only use a mortar and pestle. The consistency, texture and taste is so much better when you do it correctly. IMO you ruin it by doing what Mike did, you're better of just using the ingredients as they are than making all of them worse. Even the cheapest pesto you get at a store is made correctly, and is better than what's done here.

  • RoselnDecember

    Yay!!! I'm so happy for Mike!! ❤️❤️❤️

  • WakeTheMountain

    Hahah Jamie was such a jerk to Mike all episode .... so glad he lost lol 😂

    Isn't a pizza donut basically a calzone?

  • culpanda

    "good dough should only be four ingredients" lol he states an opinion as fact. that purist ideology really hinders chefs tbh

    I want to try both. I do wish Barry and James were on this video as well because I loved this one and it needed them to go over the top. Cheers, y'all.

  • RealSekator

    pizza donut??? more like a pizza pocket or calzone that existed for a long time


    You should collab with Oowee vegan for a vegan battle!

  • EnkeliJaPerkele

    You might call it pizza doughnuts, in Italy we call them panzerotto, we only shape them differently XD

  • Aidan

    After all the trash talking that Jamie did, it made me very happy to see him lose 😆🤣

    Would love to see a crossover with School of Wok, the normals doing a takeaway battle of what they'd normally get. Possibly followed by Ben/James vs Jeremy chef vs chef

    Im not sure if its karma, but I wouldnt have ordered mikes. I dont eat pork, but if I could I would still give it too jamie. I could be wrong but on visuals alone. The donuts look more delectable.

    I didn't think the pizza croquembouche would work, but go Mike!!

    Eh, not really sure about that pizza stone bit. I pre-heat mine as hot as I can get it and I ALWAYS get a nice rise and a crispy bottom on the crust. I use it several times a year, at least. I also use it to make breads that don't go in a loaf pan and it works great.


    I do think Mike should've lost. Jamie did everything, Mike had other people do a bit of his work for him, no matter how small it was, he still didn't do everything step by step, someone helped him. Poor Jamie. Another Montreal Screwjob for him.

    Congrats Mike!!! My husband and I couldn't help thinking about how profiteroles are usually filled. I'm curious to try this by slicing the dough to work it less and just letting it proof in whatever shape its in after i slice it to proportion it. Then after its done cooking, put in a mix of ricotta, cream cheese, and chopped sundried tomatoes and basil. But would the dough give way to the filling? hmmmm.... I wonder if I could some put air in the middle of the dough ball before it cooks... I'm going to need to try this!

  • Pandakyo1000

    WTF? Seriously? Jamie but much effort in his dish. It was way more creative and way more delicious and you want to actually steal it but Mike wins, cause 'its something' are you FUCKING KIDDING ME? That makes that guys so unsympthical, that i never ever would visit their restaurant.

  • IrishSparrow

    I would love to see more videos like this one! Especially from other restaurants with food kits!

  • TF

    Ok, that pizza crocombuche looks like a fantastic sharing dish for a night's out

  • Spicefreak

    That ugly mound was worthy of a plating badge?

    7:50 - You put your pizza stone on the top rack, then your pizza on the middle so it gets the heat coming off the stone as well.

  • Chronosatan

    @sortedfood I feel like Jamie has been constantly shafted by you all recently constantly losing when he puts so much creativity and effort in, heck the Pilgrim’s said they wanted to add his dish to their menu and still somehow Mike wins even though he had to have his ass saved on his cheese, and burned 1/4 of his croques not to mention the fact he didn’t make his own sauce or dough. Whereas Jamie is constantly trying to better himself and make as much of his dish on his own as he can and you all hold him to a higher requirement, but then grade him lower because of it and never compensate the fact that he creates the grading curve.

  • Stacey Smith

    Jamie you don't win but we're robbing your idea for our menu anyway 😂😂

    Hi guys! Being Italian I have to admit I was a bit sceptical at first, you know how much we value our traditional pizza but despite of my initial doubts you guys nailed it (as usual I might say)! This is what cooking is about, isn't it? Having fun in the kitchen, experimenting, using the basics to create new dishes.. and you never fail to do exactly this, so good job! Pizza Pilgrim have been such a lovely guest and addition to this episode, it's clear how much they love what they're doing, plus they're super nice! And as an Italian (yes, I had to state that again) I was truly impressed when they mentioned Caputo flour. If you haven't already I suggest trying "Caputo Nuvola" to have a taste of a true napolitan pizza, those with the famous puffy cornicione. I discovered this flour through the instagram account of a girl named @FitvsSweet who had a pizzeria when she was younger and bakes the most gorgeous pizzas in her home oven. She is also a perfect example of how experimenting in the kitchen can bring to astounding results, her speciality is recreating sweet dishes in a healthier way, for those who have intolerances, so everything lactose-free, sugar-free and so on, I suggest checking her out! That being said, I've been following you guys for years and you've never once failed to entertain and inspire me in my cooking journey (I've also bought and read multiple times Ben's staple "Cooking for Geeks"), so thank you for your content and how much work and effort you put in it, you're doing an amazing job! Cheers!
