    Margherita pizza on a sourdough crust, homemade sauce and basil leaves from a plant I surprisingly haven't managed to kill yet.

    @NDG I have not tried Mike's Hot Honey...but I'll check it out!  How spicy?? I mixed up the sriracha honey myself but had to dilute because my wife said too hot!

    @Wanasmoke infused with chili peppers . . so heat on the backend.  FUNNY that my wife accidently gave it to my 3 year old on some peanut butter crackers instead of normal honey.  Scream & Tears . . shocked the neighboors didnt call the cops. 

    EDIT we love the stuff on all red sauce pizzas.  That and calabrian chile oil.

    Taking my first shot at pizzas this weekend. Going to buy the dough from the pizza place on my street (perk of living in NYC). Plan on making a pretty simple sauce and using basic toppings (pep, sausage, onions, peppers, basil, etc.) Thinking of running the egg between 500-600 and making sure the stone is at that temp for at least 40 minutes before I put the first pie on. 

    I have a medium - but plan is plate setter legs down, grate, 2" spacers, then the stone. Maybe use some parchment paper for a few minutes if it doesn't seem like the pies are getting high enough in the dome?

    How am I doing? What other advice do you have for me?

    good plan, just make sure you have a good way of getting the pizzas off your peel and onto the stone.

    I think your setup seems fine. I might error on the side of caution on your first one and keep it closer to 500 than 600 just in case your dough is sensitive to the heat. I've cooked a lot of NY style pizzas at 450 - 500 and I like them that way. It's individual preference, but one thing no one likes is a burnt pizza. It sounds like you've done your homework, though. (spacers between plate setter and stone, two thumbs up)

    Some deep dish from last weekend
  • smokingalsmokingal Posts: 1,025
    Trying out some modifications to my sourdough pizza recipe, but let it proof at room temp for too long, so a 3 day stint in the fridge left it over proofed.  Still tasty and sour as all get out.  Used some leftover dry aged lamb shoulder, Wagyu short ribs and beef sausage.

    Weekend pizzas on the Ardore.  Simple sausage / buffalo mozzarella and a margarita. I need to kick start my sourdough starter so I can use it again in my pizzas.

    It’s stock floor.  And I, like you, don’t use it as often as I’d like.  But it’s really nice and super convenient

    How have I not seen this tread before is beyond me.
    I just made some balls for this sunday, my nieces want to play and learn how to make some za's. I never used the 2 day fridge method before so hopefully the dough comes out good. I use 240 gr H2O 4 gr Yeast 15 Gr sea salt 400 gr 00 flour 10 gr EVO this makes a dough ball big enough for 4 80 gram balls

    FYI to any of you that were looking to buy a Pizza Party Ardore or Bollore. They basically doubled the price. The Ardore is now $1,000 and the Bollore is around $1,900. Glad I bought when I did.

    I saw that. Hard to understand their pricing move on the Ardore in particular. Simone (the Pizza Party guy) has said the price is what it is and there won't be any more discounts. If true, I think he's priced himself right out of the smaller, portable gas fired tabletop oven market. With the Ooni Koda available on sale periodically for as little as $249 the market will say "Ciao, Ardore!"

    Had I not bought my Bollore when I did I wouldn’t even think twice. It would be a Roccbox or Koda for me
