thanks Anthony and Craig.  I appreciate your input.  if I stick it out, i'll have to develop my skills a little further to have the confidence I'm used to with a stronger dough.  I think it's probably worth it though.

thanks Valhala, I hope it warms up soon for you like it has here in Bama for us.  finally turning the corner towards spring here. 

I've been practicing up for a big pizza party this Tuesday with a bunch of guys who really know food. 
I'm sticking with the 63% dough.  I'm getting used to it now and really like the flavor and texture.  our WF finally got some buffalo Mozz this week and I got a couple of balls.  It just came in the day before.  the Tre Stelle isn't my favorite but it's really good and welcome after all winter not being able to buy any.  been tweaking some combos and played around with Everlast's crowd pleaser and its whipped cream base.  I think that one may make the list!  I got some pics last night, I hope someone takes more on Tuesday.  will post back if they do.

Bill,

I am curious to know what is your favorite cheese and can you post a photo of the package?  Thanks again.

thanks scupbucket, Norma and Tom.  My favorite buff mozz is garofalo of the ones I've tried.  it seems to be heavily dependent on freshness though.  I don't think it lasts long.  here's a terrible photo of the package....

Same here. That's the best mozz I have available here by far. I get it at Costco. It comes individual balls in bags now - 4 individual packs to a package.
Pizza is not bread.

Thank you , Thank you.

I have to get down to the Seattle Costco very soon.  They are the only Costco in my area that sells it.  If I remember correctly, this cheese comes in a bag. Thanks again everyone.

sauce was straight up Cento peeled Italian Tomatoes.  I pulled the tomatoes out of the sauce and put them through the med. plate on food mill.

Do you ever make your way to Mississippi wheelman? I'd work for free, well, maybe for a pizza :)

Bill, if your rosemary roasted potato and fennel sausage pizza (I call it the Meat and Potatoes) is as good as it looks in these pics, among the others, I think you'll have some very happy guests. Enjoy your pizza night!

thanks Everlast, that pizza is definitely a favorite!  we had a good pizza night.  It was cool but we ate outside anyway.  The dough was cooperating well. 
adletson, we were in your town then!  we're from Cullman.   Roll Tide

Roll Tide!  My boss lives in Cullman and commutes.  I envy your easy access to the interstate.  Admittedly, that's the only thing I know about Cullman.  And also there's a gas station right beside where you get on the interstate that sells donuts. Gotta learn the important stuff.  ;D

been a while since I posted here but I thought I would put in another installment.  A couple of chef friends came up last night and tried their hand at the oven.  It was a pretty warm night.  My dough was 65% hydration which I've found is possible only because of using wooden dough boxes.  I have a really high failure rate with over 63% in plastic, but it's all good with wood!  We had a gallon of raw milk so we made mozzarella.  Luckily, we had also bought some because a gallon of milk only made one ball! 
cheers!
