Trianon is across the street form Da Michele, and prolly the favorite of my wife and I.  (Crust had a pleasantly light crisp to the outside).  And for a bonus, there's hardly any lines since Da Michele is so hyped up from the movies.  Worth getting a pie at if you've got time...

The Di Mateo frigatore is amazing... if they're frying zucchini blossoms, get one.  If they're not, wait around until they are.   :-D

Craig,

how often would you say its necessary to feed a starter that sits in a kitchen so its stays nice and active, ready to go whenever i want. I usually make pizza every night or every other night and feed my starter just before going to bed everyday. can i get away with 1 feeding every other day or would it depend on the amount of flour for one feeding as more flour gives the yeast more to feed of?

Whenever you change your starters feeding schedule or even what you feed it, you should consider splitting it carrying on with the old as well as new routine for several weeks. That way if the new routine leads to something you don't want you can discard and continue with the old.

Feeding every other day is pushing it for an on the counter culture. Especially if you are keeping a high hydration starter.

Thanks David, that makes sense. its usally 24h after the feeding that i use it for making pizza, that might explain why i have to use such a high % in my dough formula given that i ferement at 72-75 F depending on tempeture flaxuations for 24h. That being said i get pretty good results recently, i posted a few pictures here: http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=26286.3900

I haven't had a problem feeding every other day. For a while I was feeding every 3rd day, but that probably too long.

Caputo Pizzeria, 62%HR, 2.8% salt, 1.9% SD, 38h+10h @ 64F. Balls in wood boxes.

I'm really liking the more even browning / less leoparding pies. They are undeniably better than high-contrast spotting pies. In a word, they are sweeter - more caramel, less carbon.

Main changes include:
  • Wood dough boxes
  • Less time in balls, 12 hours max
  • New fire arrangement

Like I said before; any of you commercial guys steal the Nutella, Candied Jalapenos, and Bacon pie, at least give me name credit.  ;D

I used this on my cheese in Margherita pies above. I really like the melt, and I use a lot less cheese with great results.

I guess I'm the first to see this opus -- those look stellar Craig.  I didn't think you could outdo yourself! 
Any idea why the later balling yielded better results?  Was the dough as easy to open as your 24 hour balled dough?
