Pizza Napoletana in Pictures
« on: June 29, 2012, 03:09:51 PM »
As a tradition, I always bake a Margherita pizza as the first pizza of the night. I always find it so compelling that such simple ingredients can combine for such a complex, delicious, elevating experience. Thought I'd share this sequence of shots.

Nice job!
That would make a great slideshow set to music.  Youtube it!  Instant classic!

I like a man who is not afraid to put some basil on a pie!

How about some "deets" ( thats details if your over 20) on the dough formula and workflow.  Looks Awesome

Excellent bake. Your crumb looks like sourdough - fully gelatinized.

Hey guys, thanks for the compliments. TXCraig1 - I like to have a little bit of basil with every bite!

For the details:
100% Caputo 00 flour, 65% hydration, 2% salt, .6% ADY, mixed in KA stand mixer for 8 minutes, 4 stretch and folds with 10 min rest between each, bulk rise in the fridge for 24 hours, balled, back into the fridge for 20 hours, re-balled and proofed at room temp for 3 hours. The toppings are Strianese San Marzano tomatos and imported Italian buffalo mozzarella. Oven temp was about 800 degrees on the floor and the bake time was 1.5 - 2 min. Basil was fresh in the pot from Trader Joes.

I don't understand the places that put one or two leaves on a pie  :(

Wow, great sequence of pics!  I always wondered what started and led up to the the burning coals we typically see in a WFO after it's all been pushed bake toward the back of the oven. ---pete---

Bob - just noticed I hadn't replied to your post. The oven is a Forno Bravo Primavera 60.
