Raised the bar a little here if that's even possible.  I remember reading BTBs favorite formulation included rice flour.  I picked some up over a year ago and never used it.  I also wanted to go for a true Malnatis butter crust.  This pie turned out fantastic.  Notice how low that crust is (a Malnatis trademark) Probably the most comparable I have come to a BTB Malnatis creation.

9 inch formulation:

85.5% Gold Metal AP flour 158g
5.4% semolina flour - 10g
9.1% rice flour - 17g
46% water - 85g
14% corn oil - 26g
7% butter - 13g
1/4 and 1/8 IDY
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp sugar

Preheat stone to 500.  Baked at 475 for 10 mins and 16 mins at 450.

Cheese: 12oz Mozz and Prov sliced
Tomatoes: Alta Cucina Plum tomatoes pulsed in FP 4 times

This one was amazing guys.  The tomatoes are still key though to hitting that elite level.
