Thanks. I just didn't want to ruin a pie by dousing it with too much.

BTW, the prep table looks awesome. I am jealous. You have one heck of a garage!

Thank you Don!

Nice job Craig.  With the table and the pizzas and everything.  You ready to open your garage to customers yet?

Craig...

Nice job on your prep area...I probably missed the rationale somewhere, but why did you choose a wood top and not marble...

Thanks Marlon. Let me know if you want to know all the things that went wrong in my design along the way. First and foremost, think about what could get in the way of your table legs...

Thanks Craig!  I will be doing a fixed setup right next to my oven.  I really love your design with the insulated box for the toppings.  I have been meaning to do my prep table since last year but whenever I try to start with the project, I remember my back aching every night when I did my oven build.  I think 1 year rest is already enough so I will start the prep table project soon.   :-D

Outstanding - both on the pies and your prep table. I am glad to see that wood works out well. I may use that material for the one I build. Outside my marble get's sticky when it is humid.

Seeing your gorgeous crusts makes me yearn for some long fermented Caputo, which I have not used in quite some time. Your kung fu sets the bar for us all Craig.

Wouldn't it be cool to get a pie like that and a lube job at the same time?! :o ::) :P :-D

For what it's worth, on this pie, I put my normal hand torn fresh mozz under thinly sliced WM dry mozz. I really like the way it baked up and tasted.

Wow that looks super tasty!

I happened to see it at a local store. It's really good. No need to send me any. I should be able to get it.

Craig beautiful pies. I love the prep table. Can you put a strip behind the containers so they angle towards you a little? I also noticed the table and chairs . You have a little pizzeria with seating for 6 that is pretty cool.

To use webspeak....

OMFG

Craig, you have moved beyond the abilities of many a mortal man.

Exactly! What an incredible piece of equipment. And you built it so fast. Really amazing.  Well done!
