It was like a laser beam coming out of the oven. Full fledged leopard spots were appearing within 5 seconds of the launch.

Maybe you could start doing glass blowing classes instead and take a little pressure off us... ;D

Those are Boar's Head natural casing. I got it at my local grocery store. Pretty good taste. It comes in a stick. I sliced it, but I'm sure they would have sliced it for me if I asked. I like it a bit irregular.

Mama Mia, those are some good looking pies.

I look forward to trying them in the future!

Awesome looking pies.

You recently went up to 2% SD. It gave more rise and you mentioned you might prefer it. I now see you've gone down to 1.7% again. Any reason? Just prefer them a little less puffy?

The cheese on the pies was BelGioioso fresh mozzarella sliced logs (not water packed) from Costco 2/1# for $9. The taste was OK, but I didn't care for the way it melted. I bought it because they didn't have any buffalo mozz, and I didn't want to make another stop. I probably wouldn't use it again.

Yeah, never been a big fan of the more marshmallow'y looking mozzarellas. They just don't seem to blend in with the tomatosauce.

2% was too much. 1.5-1.7% seems to be the sweet spot. How much is based on my gut feel about the starter activity level.

The best pepperoni I've ever had was a homemade one from DiBruno bros. in the Philly Italian Market.  It's absolutely amazing on a pizza.  It's nice and small, curls up perfectly, and the flavor is unmatched by any other brand IMO.

BenLee,

I agree.  I purchased some one time.  I forget which pizza I put it on though.

Fortunately, i go there once every 2 months, but it's gotten so bad that I don't make a pepperoni pie without using the DiBruno Pepperoni.
