Pizza Perfection

TTCTTC Posts: 469

As they say about my golf swing, every now and then all that awkward jerking motion comes together to smash a drive.

Occassionally I get all the elements correct for an incredible pie.

BBQ Chicken Pizza:

Homeade dough, not the "00" caputo flour version because I am out, used a wolfgang puck recipe with AP flour that was quite good

Sauce was Carolina Sweet BBQ sauce cut with homeade Lexington style dip to loosen it up and give it zing.

Chicken Thighs rubbed with Tony Cacherie's and grilled

Fontina and Smoked Gouda Cheese

Thinly sliced raw shallots


Drizzled the top with a bit more sauce

Baked placesetter legs down, raised stone, 500 degrees

    Nailed it!  Nice job.  

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

  • I'll take two for the game on Sunday please....thanks!

  • Nicely Done. ZA on the egg is an awesome meal. Don't ever need to go for take out pizza anymore.
  • That one could be in an advertisement or commercial on TV!  Looks very professional.

  • Wow!!! That's a great looking pie.... Is the platesetter legs down the way to go with pizza? I have been cooking mine legs up then grid at the felt then I raise my stone 2 inches above the felt in the dome, they also come out really good. The thing that helped me the most was making pizza on a pizza screen for the first half of the cook then sliding it off the screen direct on to the stone.

    That is one very nice looking pie - nicely done
    It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.
