American House—the Siren Hall spinoff—is making darn good pizza.
CARLY SIMPSON

CHEF/OWNER MICHAEL PETERSON is putting a twist on the classic Neapolitan at his latest venture—American House Wood Fired Pizza in Elk Rapids. He follows the rules when it comes to making and baking the dough. Ingredients: Caputo 00 flour, water, yeast and fresh salt. Texture: Thin and puffy. But when it comes to toppings, Michael and his team shake it up with ingredients like fennel sausage, leeks, blackened shrimp and crispy Brussels sprouts. Michael's favorite pizza, the Jack Straw, features Parmesan Mornay sauce, mozzarella, fontina, fingerling potatoes, bacon, scallions and spicy sour cream.

SOUND OFF What's on your mind?

FOUR SURE I have been watching GH since I was in the womb and have continued watching into my adulthood. This is the first time I am reaching out because I am just so disappointed in the decimation of some beloved couples. Although I understood the Chase/Sasha/Michael/ Willow switch, I was ecstatic when the truth was finally revealed. But in just a few short weeks, the attempt at rekindling the former romances was dismantled. I absolutely love the dynamic between Chase and Willow. He has such a pure love for her; it’s beyond endearing. Sasha clearly loves Michael, as well, so I was shocked to hear them say it wasn’t working. Willow and Michael are just not a good fit for each other. Nothing against the actors — they are phenomenal. And now to ruin the relationship between Jordan and Curtis? I adore them together. I am truly hoping the writers will see that breaking up actors with insane chemistry is just plain wrong. Thank you for continuing to be the only magazine I read!
