Drunk, Happy and Full
« on: March 30, 2014, 10:59:08 AM »
Been a while. Just had our first fire up since last year because the weather was pretty brutal this Winter. Anyway, just finished cleaning up after my small-ish pizza party and thought I'd share my post-cleanup video...

Your kids are cute and your pizzas look great. Nice job.

Can you share the recipe for the mushroom sauce it looks very good and would be a nice change from red sauces.

Actually, my guest made that sauce. Here is what he used, if I remember correctly...

100 grams each - Enoki, Shiitake, Erengi, Maitake, Shimeji and White mushrooms (I live in Japan and use Japanese grown mushrooms, but you can use mushrooms available where you live).
200 ml - fresh cream
1 teaspoon - fresh minced garlic (or garlic powder)
1/2 teaspoon - nutmeg
1 bayleaf
Olive Oil

1. add olive oil to a skillet
2. Saute' mushrooms at high high til moisture looks to be reduced.
Add all other ingredients and simmer til sauce thickens.
3. Done.

Neat setup and cool video. The pies look very good.  :)

I am curious; what is baby leaf & what does it taste like?

Great looking pies as usual.

How do you plan to reheat the leftover pies without the crust getting tough?
Do you use the residual heat in the WFO?

Your kids are  precious !!

Thanks! Regarding reheat, here's what I do to avoid crust getting tough...

1. Never slice leftover pies. Keep them whole and on parchment paper.
2. Pre-heat oven to 480f with a cookie sheet inside on the center rack.
3. Liberally brush the cornice of the crust with water. This will protect the crust from dehydrating and becoming tough.
4. Slide the pie, along with the parchment paper it's on, directly onto the cookie sheet, which by now should be hot. Watch it carefully.
5. Remove the pie immediately when you see the cheese bubbling and the oils sizzling. It's crucial to get this timed perfectly because the water you brushed will be just about evaporated by now and it's on it's way to dehydrating and becoming tough, which you don't want. Remove the pie at the right time and it's almost as good as it was fresh out of the WFO.  :chef:

Some time in early May, I should have another video up. I may have a bunch of videos up in August this year too when I get to my dad's house and fire up his oven.   ;D
