I woke wanting pizza, so did the regular 4 cups HEB bread flour, 1 cup semolina, 3 cups water 2 tsp salt and 1 tsp ADY.  I plan on using it in about 8 hours so I am putting it in a warm spot.

More or less.  I found some andouie at HEB and some Classico tomatoes at a small town Walmart, I also have some Oaxaca cheese and I need to get some cherry tomatoes and I will be set.

Well that shrimp pizza would be right up my alley especially if dressed post oven with some arugula and lemon juice.
Hah.  I love to find someone else who is in the more or less area of measuring of ingredients.  I am an eyeballer.  I do have a scale and certainly can follow the rules, but...well I just like playing around.

You do make the most wonderful pizzas.  And I like the fact that you will do the "emergency" doughs.  I do too, but it really puzzles the family when I kinda groan and say okay, but it won't be as good.

the only time I use my scale is when I'm weighting out ground beef to make burgers! :P

The dough rose nicely and feels great.  I really like this HEB bread flour.  I let it double and then did 7 stretch and folds and divided it.  4 balls of around 380g (I weighed one) for 16" bar pies.

What is the texture/grind of the flour similar to?  Nice looking rounds there.  I think you use more bench flour than I do generally.

Had I posted a picture of the batter that doubled you would understand.  It was very wet, but tightened up nicely as I did the stretch and folds.  The texture without semolina is close to a Tipo 00, with semolina it is a little more coarse.

The balls have doubled again, so I put them in the fridge, I am shooting for a 7:00pm bake time.

One of, if not the best pizza I have ever made:  andouie sausage and onions, cranked out in less than 2 minutes.  The pepperoni ones were pretty good too at about 3 minutes.

Last week's dough, manchego cheese and fresh japs.  Nothing else needed (cold beer excepted).

I can see how that would go nicely with cold beer.

I made a dough for today, but now I won't get to use it until Monday.

5 cups HEB bread flour
2-3/4 cups water
2 tsp salt
1 tsp ADY

It is lower hydration than my normal dough, but has risen nicely at room temp for about 10 hours.  I am going to punch it down, make one big ball and let it go overnight, then ball it and fridge it in the morning.

After an overnight rise, I balled and fridged it.  Looking forward to some pizza this evening.

This is the plan:

4 pizzas tonight:

Bianca's Rosa:
Coarse grated aged Parmesan, fine grated red onion, rosemary, and crushed roasted pistachios, lightly bathed in EVOO.

Pig pizza:
Fresh Italian sausage seasoned on the grill, red onion, and thin sliced japs with Oaxaca and manchego cheese.

Guadeloupe:
Halved, gutted, and seeded cherry tomatoes and cilantro with Oaxaca and manchego cheese.

Mushroom mayhem:
Mucho Mushrooms, pepper, EVOO, and Parmesan with Oaxaca and manchego cheese, drizzled with truffle oil.

Great looking pies, but the ones with jalapenos are calling my name.  :drool:

The Guadeloupe pie looks fresh and vibrant - I bet it tasted the same way.

Vibrant is a good word for it.  I use about twice as much sauce as normal to really accent the tomato.

That's what I call a feed! Love the Guadeloupe especially. And the Rosa of course (I made a Rosa yesterday myself).  Thanks for posting the pics.  It's making me hungry and its only 5:30 a.m.
