Pizza A La ShedFarm (Thanks BJ!)

Well I cooked the Sam's Club dough balls that ShedFarm BJ gave me a few weeks ago. They thawed out for two days and began rising in the fridge. After I took them out, they rose even more.

The setup;
lots of lump, plate setter legs down, BGE feet, generic pizza stone, 575 dome temp.

The cook;
The dough coming to room temp. It sure puffed up.

Pizza #1 cheese and pepperoni (It had a cancerous looking lump there).

Nice crust. Tasted pretty good for store bought dough. Certainly my best effort so far.

Pizza #2; The "Mediterranean White" EVOO, garlic, feta, mozz, roasted red peppers, kalamata olives, mild banana peppers, Italian spices. I went a few minutes too long on this but still good.

The results;
I'm getting better but need more practice. Darn. Thanks to BJ for making this happen. So very kind of you. Nice to meet a fellow local Egger. I think I'll buy a box of these and continue the quest for the perfect pizza.

    Nice looking za's there. That lump in pic #1 looks like a beautiful air bubble, one of those things that makes the crust absolutely delicious. Part of the suffering you have to endure in the quest for the perfect pizza is that you have to eat the less than perfect pizzas that are part of the development and learning process. I feel your pain- let me know if you need help in the eating part of the process.

    VERY cool! I'm glad the dough seems to have worked out for you, and was happy to provide you with a couple to test drive, before committing to a whole case.

    THae pizza looks tasty. You said the dough came froom Sam's club. Does anyone know if Costco has a similar product, and did you buy it from the "back" area or on a shelf? Thanks Randy
  • If you have a Publix in your area, they have a pretty good dough as well.
