Craig - Your margheritas are always perfection. And is that broccolini?

It was Dellavecchia hommage at the Garage last night. I prepared my take on his incredible Doppia bufala con erbe http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,21400.0.html and his Scarola calzone http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,19526.msg191104.html#msg191104.

My version of the Doppia bufala con erbe was a little simpler that John's - call it singolo bufala con erbe - topped only with Mozzarella di Bufala, chives, a drizzle of evoo, and a pinch of sea salt. For the calzone, John uses escarole, cured olives, capers and olive oil. I had tons of arugula, so I used  arugula, cured olives, capers, Meyer lemon olive oil, and a pinch of Parmigiano-Reggiano. Bill (Wheelman) made the real thing at the Texas Pizza Summit, and it is better with escarole. 

These pies are 60%HR. I think next time I'll go to 60.5%.

TXCraig1, I've been frequenting your threads for a while but haven't actually posted until now. Your pizzas are an inspiration! Thank you.

What an honor! I can only aspire to make pies that look this incredible. That margherita should be on the cover of the Caputo bag.

Craig, how would you best describe the flavor of the dough on this latest batch?  Creamy? Sour? Tart?

I baked what was probably my best Margherita ever while wearing it. Coincidence? I think not.  ;D
