Nice color on the cheese edge.

This one had dry salami, onions and mushrooms underneath.  This one I tasted.

And I bet it was good.

...and salting the onions.


Can you tell me about this?

For flavor? Or pre-bake desiccation?

Thanks

To get rid  of water. I used a lot of onions next to the dough.

When you beg flour from a commercial establishment, always bring a container, otherwise, your flour ends up in a trash-bag (pic 1), thanks Via-313.

Pic 2: Doubled and ready for balling.
Pic 3: Balled at 380g average.
Pic 4:  In the cans.

I  left the door of the fridge open last night so they blew up pretty big. Oh well, it may make them better.

A couple of pics from those 380g balls cooked in TxCraigs oven:

1. Pepperoni, onion and mushroom
2. Rum soaked cherries, lemon slices and marscapone.

I feel the need for pizza, so I went to Central Markup and bought some Caputo.  They also had Anna flour, which appears to be a Cento product.  I will make both and see how it stacks up (the Caputo was cheaper).

Not surprisingly, they took the same amount of water to get them where I wanted them (the difference in color is an artifact of the photo, they are both silky and white).

Both:

4 cups flour
2 cups water
1 tsp salt
1 tsp IDY

So I have 8 280g doughballs just put in the fridge and no one to cook for.  Good, I can make some oddball pizzas.  I am going to shave some radish, but I can't decide what it should go with.  Vidalia onions, radish, and corn?  Maybe anchovies, radish, and mushroom?  I think I will do just a fresh thyme and cherry tomato too.  I have some fresh mozzarella, some Oaxaca, and some quesadillo cheese, but all I have for sauce is some Centos non-DOP.

They were both incredible pies. Beautiful looking and 10X better tasting. As good as the pepperoni, onion and mushroom was, the rum soaked cherries, lemon slices and macarpone took me to another place which is not something you experience that often at breakfast!

"Fresh mozz, sausage, fresh fennel, radish, black pepper"  Bingo!

Of course, since it hasn't rained in months it elected to do so today.  Too bad!  A little water doesn't scare me.

sounds like a good choice Tom.  I'm warming up the oven here too.  I may try the same just for the heck of it. 
cheers!

The pizza with the rum soaked cherries, lemon slices and marscapone was one I sampled at TXSummit 2 and it was exquisite. If I recall correctly, Tom said that it was an expensive pizza to make. But worth every penny.

So I have everything sliced up and am running the various combos by Mamma.  She likes Craigs's but also suggested artichoke heart and radish (along with Italian sausage, she is all about the sausage), so I will try that one too.

The radish takes on a different character after being exposed to a couple of minutes of high heat.  The bitterness goes away and it gets slightly sweet.  A win from the neighbors and the wife.

1 and 2.  Precooking the sausage with the coals from the oven.
3.  A cheese pizza to test the temps.
4. The underskirt of the cheese pizza.
5. Disaster strikes.  It didn't even have the decency to go calzone, it went full on mess.
6.  Cleaning the floor.

After that and a frosty beverage, I made a couple to eat.

1. Craig's suggestion raw.
2. Craig's suggestion in the oven.
3. Craig's suggestion ready to eat.
4. Neighbors pizza.
5. Lunch tomorrow.

How was the Craig pie?
