Later tonight at home, I made more pizza for my family. It turned out great too, but you can see the difference in the crust at home vs the commercial oven.

Tom,
Your "at home" pizza's always look great too.  :chef:
Sounds like you guys are going to gain some "pizza handles" at your current rate of pie consumption!  :)

Not to take away from the theme of my thread, but while I was at the pizzeria, they made a 30 inch pizza. It is obvious that you need a large commercial oven to do this.

I set my glasses next to the pizza (in one of the photos) so you can get an idea of the size of this pizza. this might be my next project with Pizza Dough made with Beer. I have an invitation to use the oven again.

Salvation - Avery Brewing Company

This beer has a full Belgian flavor to it.  Also, it did not change the color of the dough. I look forward to some good pizza dough. I would use this beer again for sure. Priced at $9 a pint.

Made pizza today with dough made using:  Salvation - Avery Brewing Company - The dough was given a two day cold rise and worked very well.

I made a garlic, basil, white pizza, with sliced cherry tomatoes.

Thanks Bob, I got a good laugh out of that. It really is amazing how many different and wild names are out there for beer, but that is what makes it fun to try them.

Tom,
My girlfriend, Maria, is in Germany right now...let me know if there are any beer's from there that you can't get here but have wanted to try in your doughs. I'll make it happen and you can consider it my (Chicago style) donation to your excellent efforts here on your thread.
Don't be shy now man...post up some possibilities so I can have her search during their daily shopping... :)

Thanks Bob,

i really appreciate the offer. However, you would not believe how many thousands of beers are in the many MEGA Super Wine/Beer Stores and Micro Breweries that are in the Seattle area. There is so much beer to choose from, that I could do a new posting everyday for several years, if i had the time, money, and people to eat the pizza.  LOL  :-D

Thank again

TomN

 :drool: :drool: :drool: No wonder why the InBev and Miller/Coors guys are going around buying up as many of the more popular ones as they can. Wow. Nothing like that in stores near me.

Nothing yet maybe...

Craft beer is growing like crazy and the big guys know it. A local grocery store in my town just recently bought the small store adjacent to it and made it into their beverage department. Their beer shelves look something like the ones that Tom posted pictures of. When I go there, I'm like a kid in a candy store :drool: This is a major grocery chain (Giant Eagle) and they are expanding their beer selection in a big way in their other stores too. There's no way they would be making this investment if they didn't know that craft beer is taking off and that there is a strong future in it.

I know of at least 4 convenience stores (You know like 7-11s) that each have hundreds of brands of micro brews on the shelves here in Austin (more than Specs or Twin liquors).

I've been following up your posts TomN and I love it. A few weeks ago, I made a sausage pizza with Goose Island Mild Winter that was fantastic. It gave the dough a rye bread taste to it.

Hi Blackshifter,

I will have to give that beer a try. Glad your pizza turn out good.What makes this fun is that you get to try the left over beer. That is why I try to use a different beer each time.

Hirsch Bavarian-Weissbier Hefeweisse

Gave this beer a try this weekend. I thought it made really nice dough. However at $9 a pint, it was very pricy. But like always, I had to give it a try.
