On my last DS bake on Normas thread I used smoked yellow cheddar around the edge. Definitely a different stronger flavor, and really really good.

You said drinkflow.

That is funny.

I can see where smoked cheddar would really add to the party, I will try that next time.

I had another old dough, so while I was cooking dinner tonight I tried a parbake of a Detroit style.  It is about 90% done, I plan on finishing it tomorrow at work in a toaster oven.  Just plain sharp white cheddar and the Classico sauce.

It makes a big difference in the kitchen oven, for sure.

You can find quite a few of them on eBay. That's where I got mine. Just search for "Wonder Shredder"

There are three different sizes. Obviously, you want the coarsest one.

Craig,

If you do a Google search on Wonder Shredder as Tom suggested, you might find one of the vintage shredders. For example, here is a possible candidate that looks like Tom's Wonder Shredder: http://www.etsy.com/listing/122071740/vintage-1940s-wonder-shredder-grater?ref=similar_items_sash. With shipping, the total cost is around $15. However, the Cuispro unit has a larger capacity (more holes). When I originally did the search that led to the Cuispro unit, I had a hard time finding units that had the large openings.

Thanks Peter. I've seen them on ebay before as well. For whatever reason I always just told myself I'd get it later and never did.

It really does make a difference, especially in the kitchen  oven.  I chill the cheese in the big chunks and it prevents the cheese burning before the crust is done at temps in the 550 degree range.  In the WFO, cooking neo-Neapolitan type pies, it also makes a difference in the texture and taste of the cheese.  I paid like 3 bucks for mine, and knowing what I know now, I would pay 20 or 30 dollars.

I woke up this morning wanting pizza, so I made some dough:

4 cups HEB bread flour
1 cup semolina
3-1/2 cups Miller (the Champagne of) beer
1 tsp ADY
2 tsp salt


I think I was a little heavy on the cups of flour, normally it would have been less than 3 cups water.  I also bought some shrimp, some serranos and some shallots, among other things, to try a few different toppings.  I am home alone, so I can make anything.

Any chance the rest of the Millers got used?  I can't wait to see how this turns out. :chef:

I did not let the rest of the Millers go in vain...  Balled in the proofing trays for another 4 or 5 hours and then there will be pizza.

Fire in the hole!  My daughter works at Austin's pizza (meh), so I am making one for her to take to work.  Even with the emergency dough, I hope it will at least inspire them to make a better pizza.  I haven't decided what to make them, maybe just a Vermont smoked pepperoni.

This is New York style pizza tonight, so the sauce is more than just tomatoes and is lightly cooked.  Clockwise from the top:

Salt, black pepper, brown sugar, Aleppo pepper, ground clove, Italian seasoning, and basil.

Drinkflow is:  9:00AM hard cider, it has been downhill from there.

I sometimes do, this is about a 90 percent hydration dough and it was hard to keep it from opening larger than I wanted.  16" pizza, 14" peel=screen.

The next one up was the Triple S: Shrimp, scallions and serranos.  I ate most of this one,

The next 2 were my neighbors creations, shredded chicken, hamburger, pepperoni, mushrooms and a healthy(!?) dose of olive oil infused with the chicken, rosemary and garlic.  I have to admit it was pretty damn good.

I broke these out, but I didn't have any marscapone or lemons so we just ate a couple and called it good.  These are end of June rum soaked cherries, and they are wicked good.
