jb,

That is cool looking double decker stone.   8)  The pizza looks very tasty to me.   ;D

Norma

Thanks Norma. I'll bet your grill pie, while it had it's challenges, with all those veggies was delicious as well.

jb,

The veggies were good, but the whole pizza sure was not good.

My second attempt for a BBQ grill pizza this month turned out better than my last attempt, except it wasn't perfectly round.  The pizza wasn't round because of a loading error.  This dough was a one day cold fermented Lehmann dough.

Looks great Norma!

Love the color combination, and the crumb looks fantastic too!
I'd rather eat one good meal a day than 3 squares of garbage.

Norma, you make the most beautiful filetti pizza - and is that fresh jalapenos I see on there too? I think I'm in love.  ;D

Craig,

Thanks Craig, I never had a real filetti pizza.  Those aren't fresh jalapenos, but they are the young Greek Peperconcini peppers.  When they get older like me, they turn a shade of light brown, just like old women.

OMG, I haven't heard those "I think I'm in love" words for a long while.   :-D

We finally got clouds (and a little rain) so I did a few last night.  Cherry tomatoes, cilantro and a 4 cheese blend.

Tom,

Wow, the pizza you posted sure looks tasty!  :) What kind of 4 cheese blend did you use?

Anyone decided on what September's challenge is? I am going to participate this month since I am finally getting in my school schedule groove. I can find time to actually put more effort into new ideas and presentation instead of the same dishes and making them taste good while forgoing their appearance. :-D

Haha, I am going to put a ton of thought into it tonight and tomorrow. I'll throw something out and maybe it would catch on.
