I think we all are...

If I were closer to Texas, knowing how fun it's going to be, I'd almost invite myself. :-D Too bad I'm several states away though. Getting together and shaking hands would be pretty awesome.
More is better..... and too much is just right.

I agree. Though I've met Craig and Gene already, I'd love to be at this little soiree!
I can't wait to see the pies baked in that beautiful oven!

That is great news.  Great Football weather here tonight, also.  The temps. dipped into the low 70's with a nice coastal wind to back them up.  If the temps. fall lower than that the locals usually make a run for milk and bread.  It sprinkled lightly here tonight, any chance of rain for Austin, tomorrow?  I have an umbrella that could protect my oven, you are on your own with yours.

No rain, just a little breezy and mid sixties.

I was hoping that there would be cheese available, Should I pick up some?

Guys, I'll bring the following, sorry, just saw this thread....had i realized we needed dough, i could have whipped up some:

I have 2 types of Pepperoni to bring, Ciao Food Service, Hormel Foodservice and a nice stick of
Soppresseta. (you have a slicer Tom?)

Cheese making supplies.

I have a ton of foodservice cans of tomatoes....shall i bring them and we'll do a test? Tom? What else is needed? Olive Oil?

My favorite pizza lately has been pepperoni/cilantro with hot pepper sauce and/or calabrian chiles. I'll try to get some cilantro so you all can try...

Bring twice as mutch as you think we will need.  You can always take it back home....

I have a 2kg batch of Caputo in bulk, but still a bit young (only 24 hr)  we can check it and ball it at noon or so.  I can't wait.

I have a couple pounds of fresh mozzarella, a knot of Oaxca, some Monterrey jack.  Need a grating cheese and some whole milk mozzarella, if anything. Also, my basil plant finally croaked so we need basil.  I have a #10 can of 7-11 tomatoes and some Classicos.

I just finished plastering it with the finish coat:

Tom , Gene
Frst off wish I were there , perfect size for my trailer and I would love another oven !! My friend owns a large shippinf company with a base in houston So I was qwondering when I could pick this up ??  ;D I am sure Gene will not really want such a beautiful oven in his yard I will drop off a
Primavera 70 for him  :-D 
Seriously Tom you think  this oven would hold up to the rigors of the road? say mounted on a dual torsion axle trailer ?? with 4 " concrete under  to stablize and help with the bouncing/ stabilty, mass. I really love it!
Have Fun!
oh 24 hours is fine Larry did a 6 hr dough and loved it

That was an interesting night.  We had great pizza from everyone.  I didn't take any pictures last night, but I took a few today of the leftovers. 

Josh brought curd and pulled some fresh mozzarella, and it is good, no, great.  He made it look easy, but something tells me it can't be that simple to make the best mozzarella I have ever had.

Gene and Craig dueled it out with the ice cream maker, last night I gave it to Craig with the coconut ice cream (drizzled with Old Monk rum), but this afternoon I think I may tip towards the orange soda and pineapple sherbert made by Gene.  They have different mouth feel, but the sherbert works.  Brain Freeze!

Thanks to all, I really had a good time, and ate beyond what I normally could.  Time for a nap.

Thanks Tom....soon to be available commercially! I cant wait to have everyone out to Pieous for what will seem like several "soft openings!"

I took the forms off the countertops today and they look great. Tomorrow I will start grinding/polishing.
