Sunday's pizza(pic heavy)

It seems a lot of people did pizza over the weekend. Well I did too.

Here is a new setup I tried and I liked the result.
First, I removed the fire ring and placed the AR:

Then the PS legs up:

Then CI grid and stone on top of that. I have a fibrament stone so I use the protective pan underneath:

I got the egg to 550* and let it preheat for about an hour. Next cook I will hopefully have a IR thermo to check the heat of the stone. For the dough I used Reinhardt's neo-neapolitan with KA bread flour. Two pies I, actually the wife, hand stretched and two were rolled. Here are pics of the assembled pies:
Two mahgeritas:
One meat(had pepperoni and two different salame:
And a hawaiian:

The finished pies, the first went for 9 min, the others went for 8 min:
See the hot spot?

They were the best so far. I told you this was pic heavy. Thanks for looking!

    If you ask me, it looks like it worked good.

    Thanks Jimmy.

    Thanks. This setup is the best I have used so far. Now I just need to try and use the caputo flour and higher heat!
    Nice looking pizza, both of them. Love the Hawaiian.

  • ResQueResQue Posts: 1,045
    Thanks Kent. Hawaiian is my favorite, especially dipped in house ranch!
    Never considered in House Ranch... that really sounds good and yet another thing to try.

  • really sweet pizza's! i see that you have the pizza on parchment paper do you slide the pizza on the stone with the parchment paper under the pizza and if so does it burn up at the high heat? i can't get mine to slide off the peel no matter what i use, flour or cornmeal? thanks lou

    I like pic heavy.. nice lookin pies.
    context is important :)
  • ResQueResQue Posts: 1,045
    Lou, I only use the paper to assemble. I dust the stone with corn meal and use my superpeel to take them on/off. I am not a fan of using parchment paper. As far as yours not coming off you may have a hydration issue with your dough. I have not had a problem sliding mine off. What dough recipe do you use?
  • ResQueResQue Posts: 1,045
    Thanks LDD.
  • Thanks for the reply Jagermeister
    i'm not sure what the hydration issue is not wet enough or too wet?
    i use the Boule recipe and i let it sit for an hour before i spin it out to my desired size using flour to help with the sticking issue but i can't get it off the peel using cornmeal should i powder profusely with flour???
    i've resorted to using parchment paper but that baby burns up at high temps
    thanks lou
  • Yummmmm. That is some fine looking pie. I too made pizza but we ate it before the camera clicked.
