Deb, Dave Cavanagh (dmcavanagh) can get Jersey Sclafani's and he's in the Albany area.  It's possible they don't deal with any supermarkets in CT, but I'd still look around a bit. You also might try contacting the company.

I just realized that I haven't tried Shop-rite - they are individually owned but I think the company is NJ based.   Worst case is a road trip to NJ for tomatoes - it's not really that far and I could get some good pizza at the same time

This pizza looks really good!  Would you please post the complete recipe.  I'm still working on my steel baked pizzas.

Oh, yeah.

It's funny, Chaz, I'm not seeing a lot of topping migration.  Did you try a little edge stretching?  >:D

You know it scott! ;D I've always did edge stretching but this time I was a little more aware and the results speak for themselves ;D im finally getting a handle on the stretching and the workings of the steel. In the near future , im goin to start to work towards that 4 minute bake!

Sounds good, Chaz.  How long was this bake? 5.5 minutes?

This bake was about 6 minutes. Thats because I baked a calzone prior to the pie being launched and I didnt let the steel get back up to temp. I have in the back of my mind moving the steel to the top shelf and utilizing the broiler efficiently. Stay tuned....

I'm at the beginning stages of using steel as well. My last couple pies were near burnt after 4 minutes around 530*. It's been a bit of a challenge to get the timing right, but I'm sure it will be great once I figure it out. Not sure I'd ever go above 530* either.. my broiler doesn't turn on at 550* so it throws the timing off completely.

Thanks for the kind words Morgan. The dough is a 60/40 mix of All Trumps and.bread flour. For me, I really like the taste and texture of the dough and final product.
