Pizza Construction Project

Completely on-topic!

I had intended on just showing results, but went photo happy, so here is the build.

Publix dough, with a reccomended cooking temp of 400.  The XL was held at temp for an hour, and the stone and the dome were synced.

I forgot to take a pic of the set up, I will add an old one.  PS legs up, grid, upside down Woo, and stone.

The real pizza makers here will tell you less is more.  I do not disagree, but still probably load a bit more than some of them.  I don't like to smother with cheese, so each layer of flavors gets just a little cheese, and the top layer is light.  I like the meat on top to crisp and char a little.

Put on with parchment which was removed at 5 minutes, and the pie turned.  Turned at 5 and 15 minutes, then pulled.

Very crispy, required a shake of salt and peri-peri to top off.

Pics to follow.

    That is a great looking pizza, Doc!  I like a good "supreme" pizza sometimes myself.  You got your pizza setup down.  Quick question- how long do you let the Publix dough sit out of the fridge before you stretch it? 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    An hour.  If it gets too room temp the texture goes off.

    Those are some magnificent & colorful looking pizzas. I'd love a slice. Nicely done!! Sometimes you just have to go for the gusto.

    Curious..How do you delete a post? I know you can edit a post for an hour, but I don't see a button or any other way to delete one.. TIA.

  • At the very least you can change the text to NT (no text), to wipe a comment.  In this case three posts just before the one near the top by VI have disappeared.  They were not rude or obscene or in any other way something a moderator should remove.  And we are a very loosely moderated site.
