hi everyone. sorry i've been away so long. i kind of took a break from making pizza for a little while in order to focus on other food but i've been at it again recently.
for the time being, i have pretty much given up on replicating NY style at home. my pizzas just don't taste like NY style even though i am using the grande cheese and stanislaus tomato sauce. instead i've been focusing on making a better 100% whole wheat pizza. on the last one, i tried topping with it veggies and it came out very well. the flavors from the veggies overpower the imperfections in my cheese and tomato sauce. i normally like plain cheese pizza, as i don't think a perfect NY style pie needs anything but since i can't achieve that, i can make a very flavorful and healthy pizza using vegetables, hot peppers and whole wheat dough. i've been steaming the crusts to make them softer and i want to experiment with another whole wheat recipe. i still haven't gotten the chordate stone, but it's still on my list of things i want to try. oh and kross, you are right! my stone was upside down. thank you for telling me, now i can make larger pizzas. i can't believe no one pointed that out to me before you did.http://i34.tinypic.com/2mzfpeu.jpghttp://i34.tinypic.com/hu4o69.jpg
