Sunday Pizza Cook! Only second try and nailed it. Pic Heavy.

After my practice attempt last Sunday, decided to get back in the saddle and with the experiences and lessons learned try it again.  Made the dough on Saturday and let is sit for over 24 hours.  The pics will tell the rest of the story.

Crust is perfect.  No burns or char here.

And ready to eat:  Chorizo pizza, balsamic brussel sprouts, and grilled peaches with vanilla ice cream for dessert.  Oh, and of course another beer to enjoy while doing so!

Everybody loved the pizza.  Was a great success.

  • Put me in the group of people who are reasonably impressed by the small masterpiece you've put together here.  Looks like it was quite the evening.

    Interesting idea for a pizza, looks great. We used chorizo before on a breakfast pizza (served it up at the Plano eggfest last year) along with hash browns, Oaxaca and Chihuahua cheese. Pretty tasty. What kind of cheese did you use?

    Romano, Parmesan and mozzarella.  Tried to keep it as simple as possible only being my second time around.
    I love chorizo, so your breakfast pizza sounds very good!

    This wasn't the most economical pizza.  Can't compete with the $10 Large specials that the chains are running around here.  But the Smell and taste was top notch, and doing it myself is what it's all about.

    I'm already planning the next one.

    Looks good. My wife over roasts sprouts and I really like them, I'll have to try your method of pan cooking on the BGE.

    Did you cook the pizza on parchment paper?

    No.  I don't have a pizza peel yet so I used it to help transport the pizza to the stone.  After a minute or so, I removed the paper.  It slid right out from under the pizza without a problem.

    Wow, I didn't know that.  The valley just north of me is called "Peach Alley" and they're great (despite Alton Brown's snide and ignorant comment) and I know Georgia is known for their peaches.  
    Any idea why they're not good in So. Florida?

    Where is "Peach Alley"? I am not familiar. Most So FL groceries carry out of state peaches that are picked for shipping way before they are pipe. As a result, it is difficult to get them to ripen and give the same juicy flavor of a tree ripened peach. Fortunately, once a year friends bring me good Georgia peaches.

    I make my sauce using
    6-8 garlic cloves
    EVOO
    whole peeled roma tomatoes 
    salt 
    a bit of italian seasoning. 

    cooks for only 20 minutes. (crush the tomatoes with a potato masher at 10 minutes)  sometimes we might add a bit of sugar if the tomatoes are too acidic. 

    We have a meatball recipe that we use this sauce to cook the meatballs in the sauce.  Really yummy.
  • How is the oracle ale? I was hoping to pick some up in VA.

    It's pretty tasty, this is my first time having it. 

    I was lucky to get it.  I didn't know it was coming in at this time.  Just happened to be at my local when it was dropped off.  Store's entire shipment was gone by dinner.
