Of course the man cave has internet.  It doesn't have a TV though, that is outside in the tool room, which is the only place with a roof where I am allowed to smoke.

I made a dough yesterday about 1 o'clock and let it warm rise until about 9:00PM, then put it in the fridge.  I balled it this morning and am going to let it warm rise until I use it this evening about 5 or 6.  

4 cups KABF
1 cup semolina
1 tsp yeast
2 tsp salt
about 3 cups water

No,  I was planning on firing the WFO but got shut down by CICH, so I have to wait until tomorrow, back in the fridge they went.

Geeze, between cheerleading, soccer, work, etc.  it is becoming almost impossible to cook pizzas.  I made these doughs a week ago or so, and they are basically pan-fried in EVOO.  Very good, even if GBD: your basic Guadeloupe, a pep-onion-jap (onions under the cheese) for work tomorrow, and a plain pep, not shown.

Sauce: Classico crushed with whole fresh basil leaves.
Cheese: whole milk Mozzarella.

This Caputo does make a fine dough.

Well, that wasn't pretty.  Tasty, but ugly.  I made a Craig's mushroom complete with truffle oil, a Guadeloupe and another Guadeloupe w/anchovies for the daughter.

I sorta had my doubts about the stucco dough Tom   ;D   but what about the Caputo one? Was the ugly you mentioned from how your crust baked?

Well, my beer fridge is cold.  Too cold on the top rack where I was storing one batch and it kind of froze.  I used those balls last night and they wouldn't cooperate.  The taste was fine, but it wanted to tear and not open.   And I may have had one or 4 too many Shiners.

I made a 29 day old dough tonight, and other than being pretty flat, it was not bad at all.  On Slice, they had a piece on pepperoni and pineapple pizza, and while that doesn't sound good to me, pineapple and jalapenos DID sound good.  I had a fresh pineapple and I always have japs, so I grilled them and cooked it up in the kitchen oven.  Pretty damn good, I think it would lend itself to Neapolitan style even better.  Sorry for the crappy phone pic, the daughter has once again assumed that what is mine actually means it is ours.

Sweet Sixteen surprise party tomorrow for the youngest.  No way in hell am I cooking pizzas for 60-70 Domino's fans, they get fajitas, but there will be enough parents there for 8 pizzas.  2 batches:

5 cup Caputo 00
3-1/2 cup water
2 tsp IDY
2 tsp salt
1 tsp brown sugar


4 cup AT bromated
1 cup semolina
3-1/2 cup water
2 tsp IDY
2 tsp salt
1 tsp brown sugar


I will let them warm rise until morning then ball them and see how it goes.

The Caputo really does make a nice dough.  24 hour warm rise, balled and they will only get 3-4 more warm rise hours.

It is a 6 fire party tonight, too bad it's 80 degrees...

Gene's oven, fired to dry it and as cover to fool the daughter into thinking the party is the pizza guy party.

My oven, where I will cook some pizza for the adults.

The charcoal grill, the vegetable grilling station.

Gas grill for chicken and beef fajitas.

Fire pit, for standing around.

Ladies fire on the patio.

My wife and I are house shopping.  I let her know that the first non cosmetic(depending on the time of year) project is going to be to build a WFO in the backyard.  I'm just glad she enjoys eating pizza as much as I do.
