By the way, the first pizza, above, was devoured by my puppy, Delbar. She loves pizza!

Omid, your dog is well trained, to eat off the plate and not have the pie cut into "slices". Nice job!

At what point was the dough balled?  I am assuming after the first fermentation and before the 1 hour in the fridge.

Thank you! Pizza is serious business to her. Whenever she sees me preparing the oven to bake pizzas, she gets super excited. Just uttering the word "pizza", runs the thrill of excitement through her. Below is the pepperoni pizza I prepared for her last night: she came, she saw, she conquered.

Last night, I baked some pizzas using my own homemade dough and the Ferrara oven at Pizzeria Bruno. Here's the basic recipe I used to prepare my dough:

Caputo '00' Pizzeria Flour (Datum Point)
Water: 64.5%
Sea Salt: 2.9%
Sourdough Culture from Iran: 1.5%

Initial Fermentation: about 19 hours at 67-69°F
Final Fermentation: about 8 hours at 69-71°F

Below is a picture of one of the pizzas I baked. Good day!

Also, here's a picture of Ciro Salvo's sourdough pizza. I had never seen any of his sourdough pizzas before. It looks delicious!

Omid,thank you for posting those pics. Beautiful pies, as usual. My wife and I are visiting Whittier, in May, I hope that we can get to San Diego for a day and night, and one of your pies at Pizzeria Bruno.

Dear friends, I thought I share with you some pictures of the kibbles pizza—yes, pizza with KIBBLES ???—I baked for Delbar last night. She had no mercy on that pizza!

(The kibbles were added after the pizza was baked.)

Below are the results of my last night bake session, using my Forno Piccolo oven. I employed exactly the same recipe as in Reply #2033 above:

http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,14506.msg248235.html#msg248235

As you can see, the results are visually different than the one in Reply #2033. Perhaps, that can be attributed to using my Forno Piccolo instead of the Ferrara oven at Pizzeria Bruno. Good day!

Hi Omid.
Do you think the difference in pizza is because of the ferrara oven's low dome vs forno piccolo tuscan dome ?

Its nice to see that Delbar is saying "Grace" before eating.

Hi Omid.
Do you think the difference in pizza is because of the ferrara oven's low dome vs forno piccolo tuscan dome?

Dear Rockmes, it is not easy for me to specifically ascertain the causation underlying the visual differentiation between the sourdough pizza baked in the Ferrara (see the 2nd picture below) and the sourdough pizza baked in the Forno Piccolo (see the 4th picture below). I do not know with certainty. However, since the dough for each pizza was formulated, prepared, and treated the same way, I hypothesize, in a general manner, that the oven-type is responsible for the difference, rather than specifying the dome height as the cause.

Unlike the Ferrra, my Forno Piccolo is a small oven, which has an internal floor diameter of 25 inches. Throughout the bake process in the Piccolo, the pizza sits adjacent to the fire (about 1 or 2 inches distance to the fire). And, I run my oven dome and wall exuberantly hot, with the flames always making a porch over the pizza on the floor. Therefore, the pizza is more directly exposed to the onslaught of the flames from the above and left side, and more directly exposed to the radiative heat emanating from the wall to the right of the pizza. In contrast, I believe the exposure is not as direct in the Ferrara oven. (However, based on my certain experiences with both the Piccolo and Ferrara, I have certain doubts about this tentative conclusion.) I think the "direct exposure" might be one principal contributing factor amongst others. Good day!

Beautiful pizzas Omid.  Are you fermenting your dough further along than you have previously? Or do they only look like that because of how you stacked them in the box?

Honestly Omid, I don't think the Forno Piccolo pizzas have anything to envy to the ones baked in the Ferrara...... but I may be a bit biased.... ;D

Awesome looking pizzas my friend, and Delbar is a beautiful lucky dog.....
