Simple lean dough- 4g kosher salt, 283g bread flour, 1.5g active dry yeast, 187g water divided in thirds for 3 ten inch thin crust pies. Cooked 600* on small with for about 6 minutes each. image simple pepperoni for the kids. image wife wanted same but with caramelized onions. imageimage I went for the different approach...still grasping for some luck this year I guess. I took New Years leftovers and put them on pizza. Dijon mustard for sauce then thinly sliced pork tenderloin with sauerkraut and black eyed peas. it was very good....I'm not sure if I'm surprised about that or not. image image I'm liking the small!

    What are you using for a pizza stone on your small?

    WOW! You outdid yourself with a recipe like that... If you enjoyed it, I think you should make "New Years Leftover Pizza" a New Years leftover tradition. Nice work.

    10" stone from CGS. my setup was woo with 10" stone on the bottom for indirect and then grid on top of woo with three feet and another 10" stone for cooking on.

    Thanks Kristi- have to use those leftovers somehow, and I was getting sick of just a plain reheat. I thought about that stuff in a sandwich, but really wanted to use the small for pizzas so pork and sauerkraut pizza was created!

    Great lookin' za's. As a mustard based life form I can't believe I haven't tried a pizza made that way. Thanks for sharing.

  • Dayum nice cooks.  Love the pork and peas pizza.  The small is really a good pizza cooking machine. The small does a great job baking bread too.
