Very nice pictures. How long was the fermentation time of the 65 F and 75F doughs?

I'm loving the prosciutto crudo pie. Next time, try reversing the process so that the crudo goes on before the salad. For me it means a prettier pie.

Again, so nice pies  :)

Craig, I love the consistency of your pies every single time!  What is on the 2nd pie in the pics (the white pie)? 

Also, when you get a pie that is not as round, do you attribute that to the launch into the oven or to the stretching of the dough ball?

Thanks Marlon. That's buffalo mozz and asiago.

Almost always the out of round pies are caused by sticking to the peel or an otherwise faulty launch.

I am not sure which one looks better, the pizzas or the wine? They both look fantastic.  :chef:



Thanks, but  :'(

awesome Craig!  so the '88 Fontalloro is still hanging in there?  I like that wine too.

I really like old dry reds with pizza. It's a good opportunity to find the bottles hiding in the cellar.

Do you remember what your average bake time was here?

Thanks Kermit, If you look back through my pictures, you see most of my pies have the prosciutto under the salad. I agree it is better looking, and it cuts easier that way too, but I actually prefer the taste with the prosciutto on top where it is insulated from the heat of the pie.

All of the dough was bulk fermented at 65F for 24 hours and another 18 hours in balls at 65F. The difference was that some a kept at 65F and other I let warm up as high as 75F over the next 4 hours.

I didn't keep time, but I'd bet they were all 60 +/- 5 seconds.

 craig, beautiful as usual.what is under the salad pizza? i really like the presentation on the arugula and prosciutto. what brand is it looks lean and tender. one more, do you shoot the outside of the dough to determine the temperature before stretching?

Just the cheese under the salad. Parm, Meyer lemon EVOO, lemon juice, and S&P on top. The proscuitto is CITTERIO Prosciutto Di Parma from Costco.

Yes, I shot the balls. I don't normally do this. I was trying to figure out where I want them. I liked 75F.

Craig,I love how your pies always look so ALIVE!  How many grams of dough per pie and what size are you stretching them out to?

Craig, are you still at all using the KAAP you were such a fan of a few years ago, pre-WFO...?

I've checked back in this thread and see you mention Caputo at one point...?
