My 7th scratch made pizza since Christmas.
« on: January 10, 2011, 09:01:36 PM »
Hi gang.

I was in the kitchen, and I thought to self?

Why not try the Pizza stone and the Pizza Peel? So I did.

Here's the steps I took to make my Pizza

The Pizza dough was made from this book.

But the crust wasn't all that great compared to my 3 day fermenting pizza dough recipe.

First I start with the prep work.

4 Rested the dough for 20 minutes. http://lh5.ggpht.com/_p1VjWUS4xKQ/TRqGB4JjtbI/AAAAAAAACVs/XkISqlA6XV0/s640/DSC01626.JPG

Mise En Place for the Pizza assembly.

Got the floured surface ready.

2 I've start5ed the hand tossing session

3 After I have hand tossed it, I just shaped it into a round shape.

Oiled the crust.

Sauced the crust.
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_p1VjWUS4xKQ/TRqHTYncxhI/AAAAAAAACWk/LkI9krMcdL0/s640/DSC01634.JPG


Added the left over Lasagna meat.
http://lh5.ggpht.com/_p1VjWUS4xKQ/TRqHeLjSB5I/AAAAAAAACWw/0WgHZNoo12Q/s640/DSC01635.JPG

Added the roasted Veggies.
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_p1VjWUS4xKQ/TRqHpVqof4I/AAAAAAAACW4/mSXya89uIr8/s640/DSC01636.JPG

And the onions
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_p1VjWUS4xKQ/TRqH0kL7hlI/AAAAAAAACXE/ECWNI3661xU/s640/DSC01637.JPG

Topped it with Mozzy.
http://lh5.ggpht.com/_p1VjWUS4xKQ/TRqH_apNQmI/AAAAAAAACXM/L1w8RD8NBAI/s640/DSC01638.JPG

Heated the stone up to 440.f
http://lh3.ggpht.com/_p1VjWUS4xKQ/TRqIJx4FFZI/AAAAAAAACXY/MO8FjwNp6uc/s640/DSC01639.JPG

Transferred the pizza to the stone.

After 8 minutes of baking at 440.f
http://lh6.ggpht.com/_p1VjWUS4xKQ/TRqIdjJlA4I/AAAAAAAACXo/XbgkfPFB-l4/s640/DSC01641.JPG

I got the peel ready and wiped it down.
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_p1VjWUS4xKQ/TRqInzdeesI/AAAAAAAACXw/e27nhExZeLc/s640/DSC01642.JPG

I let it rest for 7 minutes before I cut into it.
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_p1VjWUS4xKQ/TRqIyHyZjQI/AAAAAAAACX0/mDkgE2ftIbg/s640/DSC01643.JPG

Look at that nice and OK tasting crust.
http://lh5.ggpht.com/_p1VjWUS4xKQ/TRqI8l506uI/AAAAAAAACX8/X-J-Ht8gbFw/s640/DSC01644.JPG

Oh nice.
http://lh6.ggpht.com/_p1VjWUS4xKQ/TRqJGDFTGNI/AAAAAAAACYA/0HpNwDKBoWs/s640/DSC01645.JPG

Plated and ate, Man I am stuffed.

Thanks for all the links we get to cut and paste.  Also, why did this find it's way to the Chicago board?

Could someone move it the proper forum?

I thought Chicago meant thin crust. My bad!

We do discuss plenty of specific pizza places and their thin crust pies over on the Chicago board, it wasn't clear what you were shooting for.  Also, I bet if you got rid of the parentheses those links would be hot.

CrazyDman,

If you post your dough recipe, that might help determine where this thread best belongs.

CrazyDman,

In your opening post in this thread, you indicated that the dough was made from the book at http://lh3.ggpht.com/_p1VjWUS4xKQ/TRoEQ5Dl6nI/AAAAAAAACVA/cg_RX587IIc/s640/DSC01623.JPG. Can you clarify?

Yup it's a combo on the 2 recipes. If you have the book look the pizza dough recipe. & The recipe here.


I've combined the 2. I am sorry I forget my retarded head if it wasn't screwed on my retarded body. I always forget the little details.

Please accept my apologize.

CD, very nice job in describing and showing your great pizzamaking work and effort.  Minor pts:  it's always a little better to show the pictures in the postings and put the exact formulation or recipe in the posting itself, rather than a link (to avoid clicking elsewhere or any confusion), but in any event, you did great.  Enjoyed viewing your posting and work very much.  Looking forward to your future postings and pictures, esp. when you open your own pizzeria.  Go Blue!
