Norma,

Who is who?  ;D

Craig,

Lol, its been a long day.  You and Chau will have to forgive me.  :-[   Please accept my apology.  I was at the doctors last evening and have Achilles tendinitis.  I had to wear an ace bandage on my foot today and take pills for the inflammation. 

Is this Norma or someone else?   :-D

Okay John lets see your rim crust blistering before you can receive a six-pack.  ;D

That's OK. If I'm going to be confused with anyone, I want it to be Chau.  ;D

Lol.  You guys are funny.  I made a 3 hour emergency dough.  I got a few small scant patches of blisters but it was very sparse.

Chau,

Did you oil the rim skin again?  Great to hear you got some blisters!  8)

Chau,

Thank you for making the three-hour emergency dough. I do not know what our members require in the way of microblistering to be satisfied but at least you were able to demonstrate some microblistering in an emergency dough. I assume that you used the two pizza stones, the broiler and oiling the rim. Is that correct?

You previously described your oven as being an "anemic" electric oven. Can you tell us what "anemic" means in your case?

Norma and Peter, yes I did oil the rim and used the broiler as well as baking on 2 stones in my electric oven.   

When I say that my home electric oven is anemic, I mean that is anemic compared to a gas range.   It is a standard GE home electric oven without convection or fanfare.

Kinda crazy what you can do with a home electric oven.  Baked at a stone temp of 620F and the broiler cycling on and off for 4m34s.

Pie #2.  Rim oiled. Baked about same temp and time.  Plenty of char on these crusts.  Soft semi open crumb with a tender crust.  Toasted gooey cheese.  Good pies.

Great to have Chau back! Nobody can maximize a kitchen oven better (or any oven for that matter).  ;D

Very nice Chau.  Love how you get that deep color, char and big puffy cornicione out of your home oven.  You can tell those bad boys are full of flavor.  :drool:

Thank you guys.  When I first joined the forum,  I had this assumption that it wasn't possible to make really great and authentic pizza because the home oven just isn't comparable to a commercial deck oven.  Of course you can't make the volume of pizza, but aside from Neapolitan pies, you can make all other styles and do it well.  Even with a home electric oven.

Chau, nice pies. Did you rotate these pies, looks pretty even. Do you do anything to force the broiler to stay on?
