It kind of has that wiped mortar look of an FGM, but don't all FGMs have the bricks going in the same direction on the dome?  Or is that just a 950 thing?

I prepped my neo dough for Sunday and ended up getting delayed so i put it from the normal proofing temp of 64 into a cooler space at 57 for an extra day. 
then we got rained out for the second try!  i took the dough and made some stuff in my inside oven.  the dough is always tougher when cooked for longer but some of this was pretty good for inside pizza.  deep dish with provolone, sausage mozz and sauce; two pesto - basil and pepper; and a couple of mostly cheese...
you guys try your WFO dough in other ways too?

Larry,
I stretched the dough and put it in a pan, added a layer of cheese, a layer of sausage, more cheese, sauce and stuck it in the oven at 475 for about 25 min.  it was pretty good.  the exposed part of the edge was hard as a rock but the rest was good.  never tried a pan before, probably won't again!

baked a few pies last night to commemorate Gene's oven's homecoming! 
man, i love it when the weather cools off.  the pizzas are great, the dough is great and you get to enjoy standing around a hot oven in the cool night. 
cheers!

Dear Bill, beautiful pizzas and oven! Thank you for the pictures. I hope I am not being presumptuous, but it seems to me that you are unfair to your puppies! What's with the empty plate?  >:( Did you just let them have all the leftover juices on the plates?  :-D Have a great weekend, friend. I can't wait to see you soon!

Delicious looking Sprout Pie.  Don't tell him, but it looks better than Craig's. Nice pie, Bill  :drool:

Nice pics, nice pies.  I like the puppy pre-clean idea on the plates.

Thank you Omid, Gene and Tom!  As you can see, my dogs are badly mistreated and have to fend for themselves. Tough here in Bama.

Delicious looking Sprout Pie.

I have to agree.  I'm normally pretty sensitive to excessive topping quantities, and I think if it were just about any other topping in that much visual abundance, I might have an issue with it, but there seems something spectacular about a lot of sprouts and a lot of pork.

I think if you had added one more sprout or one more piece of pancetta, it might have tipped the scales, but where it is, wow!

thanks scott!  every time I make that one I can see the looks around the table... they all think it's going to suck, but it always wins them over.  just like it did for me at Craig's. 
I usually stick pretty close to tradition but one of the others had zucchini, lemon and homemade sausage with ricotta put on after.  the citrus and sausage is pretty dang good together.  I've been trying to have a little more of a range to work through.
