Pizza 2 Ways (pic heavy)

Decided to use bread flour this time since we had it on hand, normally we use AP Flour and it seems to work fine but what the heck, can't hurt. Dough: 2 - 3 Cups Flour 1/4 Tsp Salt 1 Pkg Rapid Rise Yeast 1 cup 120 to 130 degree water 2 TBSP Olive Oil Mix 1-1/2 Cups Flour with salt, yeast, oil and water and blend for a minute on low. Then scrape bowl and mix on high for several more minutes slowly adding flour until a ball forms. If you want thin crust use immediatley but if you want thick crust let it sit for 45 minutes or so. Meanwhile the egg indirect on the top of the A/R at about 500 Degrees for about an hour to make sure all the ceramic is heated through. Tested the stone with IR gage and it read 510 degree so the pepperoni, black olive and onion went on first since it was for the oldest boy minus the onion on his half. But first this is why you always burp the egg. Photobucket Photobucket No Flash Photobucket Ok so now here is the PBOO pizza Photobucket On the Egg about done Photobucket Inside Pic Photobucket Crust Photobucket Next up was leftover bbq spatchcock chicken pizza. Sauce was Blackberry Blaze BBQ Sauce with chicken, onion and cheese. Photobucket Photobucket About Done Photobucket Inside Photobucket Photobucket Crust 2 Photobucket Photobucket Pretty amazing but after the first pizza cooked for 15 minutes, the stone had cooled of to 445 degrees. Let it sit for a bit and waited til it came back up to 500 ,which was probably around another 15 minutes. The bread flour was a huge improvement in the crust. It was light, crispy yet chewy and just a much better all around flavor.

    Looks like some great pizzas! Cool pictures burping the egg. I like tossing in a little semolina in with bread flour or 00, but no need to change it if your happy with the result. Thanks for sharing!

  • @solson005 - thanks. What does the semolina do?

    Gives it a Little bit more taste and crunch, I use a Jamie Oliver recipe that calls for 2 1/2 cups of flour to 1 cup of semolina. Something to try if you want..

    I'm with @Budgeezer If I don't use 00 flour I use King Arthur Bread flour and semolina with both. Target should have it along with any good grocery store.

  • I add about 2 tbs of fine ground corn meal to my dough mix.  I like the texture the corn meal gives the crust. 

    Simple ingredients, amazing results!
  • @samferrise - I get some of that because i put it on my Peel.

    Have been making pizza fairly regularly on my LBGE in the 8 months I've had it, and this bread flour recipe is by far the best I've had. Made the dough and threw it on the Egg right away for thin crust at 500 on PS legs up and raised stone for 13 minutes. Perfect crisp on crust. Thanks for sharing!!

    Those pies look great!  Thanks for all the details on the dough.  I think tomorrow night is pizza night.  

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

  • @pshome - Thanks. Its a rutland, far superior than the original egg gasket

  • @smokeypitt - thanks, its works well for us. Normal recipe yields 2 13" pizzas depending on thickness.

  • Thanks Kristi, the sauce is great, little sweet ,little heat
  • What is the setup for the egg, I can see the stone on the grid, is the PS below it or just raised?
