Figs! Corn! Broccoli!  Nice combos.  Is that you by the last pie?

The guy creeping in the last photo is a friend mike from medical school, he is starting to get into food so he watched all night and then eventually made his own with pretty damn good results!

The fig pizza is a straight copy of Kenji's Fig pizza here - http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2013/10/fig-and-goat-feta-pizza-recipe.html only thing I changed was add some lemon juice and honey post bake.

The corn pizza is a rift of the Roberta's pie, "Maize Maze" - corn, queso fresco, mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, jalapeņos, red onion, olive oil. Post bake chipotle pepper liquid, and garnished with lime wedges. I've always been adamantly against corn on pizza, but this was rally freaking good - like surprisingly in a the best ways and the flavors all popped individually.

Yep, almost eggshell like on the outside of the crust and buttery smooth with good tooth and chew on the inside.

Not bad for only a 9 hour ferment!

Really, 8h or more can get the crumb where it need to be if you work the dough right. You just miss out on some flavor.
