I am stuffed and exhausted.  6 pizzas, everything cleaned, I am ready for some quality time on the closest couch.  The best by far was the Guadalupe.  Even my pepperoni-only teenager ate 2 slices.  More pics later, like tomorrow maybe.

Very Nice Tom, looks like a caputo pie.  Am I way off?  ;D

Yep. Way off. ;)

I use HEB BF and KABF interchangeably with great results.

A few more pies:
1. Chicken, caramelized onions, grilled corn and post-bake cilantro.
2. Deer sausage, Italian sausage, and onions, topped with pecorino romana.
3. Cherry tomato, mushrooms, onions, cilantro.

They all look perfect,  especially the Guadalupe.  Good job Tom.  Did you happen to take temperatures of the floor?

Very good looking pies.   One thing I noticed on the Guadalupe was some burned cilantro.  Did that affect taste?  Would tossing the leafs in a bit of OO or hitting them with a dose while on the pie prior to the oven help?   Not a complaint... just an observation and I would gladly eat it!

I didn't measure the floor temp, but it was very hot.  I did a long burn to get rid of some diseased wood.  The Guadeloupe cooked in less than a minute with a nice thin crispy crust.  I coated it pretty good with EVOO, and the burned cilantro did not affect the flavor at all.

I made dough for 4 pizzas tonight for tomorrow or Sunday, cold rise either way.  80/20 KABF/semolina including 1 tsp salt for 800g, 740g water including 1 tsp yeast and 1 tsp sugar.  90% + hydration for the initial rise.  I will weigh the dough after balling to see how much bench flour it picks up. Divided by four = 4-385g doughballs I may go for five at 308g.

I picked up some St. Pete's Select Amblue cheese, Quadrello di Bufala, and some Lucques olives from Antonelli's today, so at least one pie will have those and probably some cilantro and roasted garlic to compete.

After balling (6 doughballs at 270g each) the total dough weight was 1620g, for a final hydration of 84%.  In the cups and warm rising for now, I will probably leave it out overnight, then cool it tomorrow morning.

I let it warm rise for about 12 hours, then put it into the fridge for tomorrow evening.

The sauce is a can of Tomato Magic ground tomatoes and a can of Rienzi crushed Italian plum tomatoes (both 28oz).  Clockwise from the fresh basil:
Dried Basil
Black pepper
Oregano
Ground celery seed
Allepio pepper flakes
Smoked paprika
Ground clove
In the center, turbinado sugar and pink sea salt.

It took 5 more tsp of sugar to make this sauce palatable.  I won't be buying either of these tomatoes again.

Tom,

I have always food the Tomato Magic tomatoes from Stanislaus to be quite sweet naturally. Is it possible that the Rienzi's were offsetting the Tomato Magic sweetness to an excessive degree?

I tried them both before using and both were somewhat bitter and acidic compared to the HEB brand of tomato sauce that is my standard and both had visible seeds.

We had a cold front that was blowing 20 miles an hour right down the throat of the oven, so I only made a few.  The first is another Guadeloupe (with the Quadrello di Bufala, most excellent cheese), the second is Italian sausage, white and green onion, cilantro and mushrooms.

Brilliant in colors and Finished product. Your topping selection allways amaze me. 20 Miles per hour yikes! I plan on venturing out once I get the basics down. Sadly most of my tasters / friends are just not that adventurous. Everytime I do like a veggie or topping other than the standard they leave it on the cooling rack  :(
