Thanks Robyn, glad to help anyway I can.   Enjoy the anticipation and excitement.  You have little to worry about.  Looks like you have a fantastic oven and an expert builder on your hands.

I enjoy the exchange, so please keep asking/posting.

I sent these over to the neighbors so I couldn't bring myself to cutting into them although I really wanted to.   :-D


Why don't you come move in next door to me. I can get you a job in Houston!

JT,

Bravo.  That first pie is absolutely gorgious. Your pies just keep on getting better looking (and tasting too I'm sure).

Thx Craig, I'll keep that in mind.  

Thx Alexi.  Good to hear from you.  Have you been baking lately?  I'm not there yet and still working on it.  Glad to be making progress here and there.

Thanks Bill, you are welcomed over anytime.  I haven't been timing these bakes but they are probably around 3.5m or so.  I'll time it next time.

Great looking pizzas Chau. The brownish hue of the crust looks just right for NY-Neapolitan.

Last one in particular looks particularly yummy. Took the grey cast outta that photo for your records.

Chau, if I ever make it out to your pad for pizza I'm definitely going to get that damned date stamp off of your camera....lol.  :)

I sort of had a feeling they were in the 3-4 minute range.They are perfect.I love the color and char of the pie..I can almost taste it through the screen.I prefer pies done a little more on the well done side,even though I do like a softer and lighter done pie once in a while.

Ron thank you brother.

Chau,

Tony

They are extender racks for my primo grill.  They are basically a grill grate with legs on them, designed to sit on top of the main grates.  

I don't often need them in my grill so I have them sitting out next to the grill to cool pizzas on.  I have been cooling my pizzas for so long now I just do it out of habit.  I figure you can't eat the pizza right away and I don't like it sitting on a plate steaming the bottoms.   Cooling it helps retain some of the crunch to the bottom surface longer.

Kelly as always, the edited picturs look great.  You are certainly welcomed over at my house if you happen to be out this way.  I'll have pizza and beer waiting for you. 

Thank you Bill and Ron.

HOLY COW! Jackie these are amazing, you have achieved everything I wanted to when I joined this forum (but never did obviously since you can see in 'news' I ordered a Pizza Hut pie lately, lol), just perfect!

Cheers!

Jim nice to hear from you.  Hey Pizza Hut deep dish is okay by me.  I hope they don't make that change nationally.  Even if they do though, at least we have a good clone recipe on the forum.  ;D

So tonight I did another bake.  I tried baking on the left side of the oven and was baking at around 900F+.  These cooked at right around a minute.  I little on the darkside but pies seem to darken really quickly at 900F+!  I'll have to work on pulling them a bit sooner.  They still ate well though.  I was going for a different look on the rim and didn't get it but was happy with the crumb on both my NP pies and the NY pies.

Here are the NP pies.   A margherita for the first.  The 2nd one had OO, mozz & blue gorgonzola, fresh figs, honey, coppa and basil.

Also wanted to try and bake up some NY'ers in the WFO.  These are made with 100% HG bromated flour and baked at temps of 650F or so.  Bake times were between 5-6m.  Really good.

One last one.  Check out a few of the crumb shots from these NY'ers.  Now who saids a NY pie can't be baked in the WFO?  :P

Looks very nice Chau. You are dialing in your WFO very quickly indeed...not necessarily an easy thing, but because it's you I am not surprised either.

For your NY-Neapolitan style pies you have been working on, I'd love to see you tinker with a larger form factor (16" to 22") and a 4-5 minute bake one day.

Peter, the cheese melt may be just a tad thin and could use a little less browning perhaps...not to mention some basil on the pie....but that pizza looks rock solid like what comes outta the ovens at the classic NY-Neapolitan coal oven joints. Granted, there are variations between Lombardi's, Totonno's, John's, Patsy's, Grimaldi's, Arturo's, Bella Mia, etc, but that crust especially looks like the genuine article fo sho!
