It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Capped the Long Weekend with Pizza, Best Yet

I didn't have any 00 flour on hand but I did have some old high-gluten flour typically used by pizza joints so I was able to go with a higher hydration (70%) and my typical 8 hour room temp ferment.

PS legs down with the opening facing the back, the two side openings were blocked with bricks.  I hoped this would direct heat towards the back and up the dome allowing for a flow found in Italian ovens.  Spring-form pan on top of the PS, Feet then stone.  I actually think I was a tad too high in the dome but got incredible spring on the crust, just too dark in places.

I still think the key for the style I'm after will be having the Baking Steel above the stone to get radiating heat down on the top of the pie.  Have to thank Federalist226 for the suggestion of "going nuclear" after the stone was at 700 degrees to get more heat on the top as it worked out quite nicely.  Pie was done in under 3 minutes.
