  • Deep dish last night.
  • So do any of you have a traditional sauce recipe you would recommend? While I enjoy standard the San Marzano, garlic, salt, pepper and Olive oil I've been using lately, I'm looking for a more New York Style sauce.

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

  • There are some awesome looking pies and Strombolis on this thread. I hate to taint it with my little dinky pie below. 

    This is was my first cook with the raised grid setup I threw together this week.  Cooking above the gasket made a difference. 

    Toppings were roasted sweet peppers, onions and country ham.  The dough was store bought for a quick weeknight meal. The bottom turned out more done than the top. The dough seemed dense and tough. 

    I used the platesetter legs down with 6” long threaded rod supporting the grid topped with a stone. I let everything preheat around 30 minutes. The pizza was placed on the egg at 450 per the dough bag directions - in reality the dome temp was probably 400-415 most of the cook. Would this have anything to do with tough dough/crust and less cooked toppings?

    How long can 00 dough balls be refrigerated? Frozen? Meant to make a smaller batch and have too many to eat right away.

    I have refrigerated proofed balls for 4 days no problem, despite what a few books say (Many say to use within 1-2 days). I have frozen balls for up to 1 month, no issues.

  • A simple quick pie for dinner tonight that made me realize I was an idiot for not instituting a step in my pizza cooks sooner.  Putting semolina flour on my pizza peel to allow for an easy release of the pie into the pizza oven! Constantly was battling with getting pizzas into the oven with ease and keeping uniformity. Feeling kinda dumb for not doing it sooner but oh well.

    Anywho...pizza was a crushed red pepper flake and roasted garlic red sauce on the bottom. Next was large pepperonis. Smoked mozzarella. Drizzle of olive oil, and then once out of the roccbox topped basil and a touch of garlic scape salt.

    Lost my dough recipie and went from memory. My memory wasn’t too good, so some improvisation was required. Came out good. Toppings were mushrooms, onion, tomatoe, garlic and some Smoked Speck Ham. Mozzarella and fresh grated Parmesan.

    Fellows there is some great looking pies in this thread. Quite impressive to be honest.

    We did pizza a week ago and turned out some great pies. Wife and kids are not pepper or onion people so I make several pizzas for them and follow with the dad pizza.
