I am home alone, half drunk and jonesing for a pizza. Via313 is shut down for the week or I would be there.   I have some 21 day old doughs, plenty sauce and cheese, and a severe lack of motivation.  What's a boy to do?

Tom,

An emergency Detroit style pizza could be made fairly quickly.   >:D :-D  Your 21 day old dough would be quite interesting too.   ;)

Here is what I am dealing with, it has collapsed a little, but is still full of air.  I will let it warm up in the pan for an hour or as long as I can hold out.

Tom,

That dough looks quite good.  Will be interested to see what you bake.  Hang in there.  ;D

Obviously that is true, but so far, other than being a bit weak for forming the skin, all of the 20+ day old doughs I have used have been excellent.  I do not think it is practical as an SOP, but the cost of a dough is not merely the price of the ingredients, especially when it is mixed by hand.

It rose in a slightly warm oven (around 80 degrees) for an hour or so, I sliced some sopressata and topped it with Monterrey jack cheese with a healthy grating of sarvecchio.  Into the oven at 550 for about 10 or 12 minutes.

I know the feeling. Oh wait, you're talking about the dough :-[.

Almost done, I dropped some tomatoes on it, along with some Italian herbs, coarse black pepper, and red pepper flakes.  It is good.

Probably the first ever Emergency/Anarchy/21 day-old-dough/Detroit, and looks dam fine I might add.

That looks great. I can see why you ate the whole thing. Is that jack cheese on the edge?

Yes, I used jack, and it hit just the right note on the edge.

Today I made a variation of Dhorst's dipping sauce and an Italian bread called "taralli".  Kind of like a pretzel.  Very good, but a lot of work, I doubt I will make it again.

The sauce:

8 cup tomato products (I used some whole, some diced, some sauce).
1 cup EVOO
1-1/4 cup minced fresh garlic
1/2 cup honey
1-3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp chili oil
1 tsp pepper pot seasoning
1 tsp dried onion minced
1 tsp coarse black pepper
5 Thai chiles minced

The dough, per recipe, but I added 1/4 cup chopped fresh rosemary; it took 7/8 pints of water to get the dough where I like it.

1. The recipe.
2. Kneaded dough.
3. Making the rings.
4. Boiled rings.
5. Final Taralli.

Probably better.  It is not that they are not delicious, it is just that they are hard on the teeth.

A couple of frozen doughs and using last Sunday's meatballs and spaghetti sauce for sauce and meatballs on a couple of quickies.  Pretty good, though.

I rolled these out, they are a little bigger than the 16" screens I cooked them on, jack and parm (and a good dose of EVOO) on the first, jack and sliced meatballs on the second.
