Looks tantalizing. Care to share the recipe, kneading regimen, and bake time/temp?

thanks!! here it is

flour 1614.68 g
water 1001.1g(62%)
salt 24.22g
ady 1/2 teaspoon

mix about 3/4 of flour in the room temp water until combined about one minute
let rest for 20 min.
add bloomed ady then mix for ten minutes. first 4 minutes mix without adding flour then add the rest of flour to desired consistency.
let rest for 20 minutes before balling then fridge for one to four days.

bake temp was about 720 at the stone but the bottom was not browning in the pan that good so i took it out of the pan for about a minute. total time was about 6 minutes.

dough ball size is about 600 grams and is pressed in a well oiled pan.

if you need any more let me know

Looks darn good!!! Do you happen to know what size pan you were using? BTW Umberto's is my absolute favorite. Nothing better than an Island pie.

Thanks guys! the pan size is 17X12 aluminum. The size is good but i need to find something that has thinner metal so i get better browning in the pan.

Fcbuilder,
   If you like Umberto's, watch this. Makes me homesick each time I see it.

A while back I was trying to do the same as you were, recreate an Umberto's pie, however, I was after their Sicilian http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,6608.msg160835.html#msg160835 . Anywho I sort of took what they did with their grandma and applied it to the sicilian with mixed results. As soon as I am done with the Pizzarium style, I am definitely going back after Umberto's sicilian and grandma again. Man, I miss their pies.
