Man, I've got to make a trip to see you!  When are you next selling your pies?  I haven't had time to swing by and see Norma in months either!

Steve,

Looking good.  ;D Maybe next week when it is supposed to be warmer I might swing by.  I am anxious to taste your pies again.

Norma, I wanted to invite you over tonight but Sue says the house is too messy for company. Sorry. I know you would have been happy just staying in the trailer. I have 9 neapolitan doughs leftover too. I'm not sure I'll get a chance to use them. I'm sure the window of opportunity is about to close on them.  :(

Steve,

I would have been happy to stay in the trailer, but that is okay.  Try to freeze the Neapolitan doughs if you don't use them tonight.

Steve invited me to his home tonight for some bakes of leftover dough balls he had from yesterday. One was a NY style pizza.  Steve was trying a little different formulation for his Neapolitan pizzas and I thought those sourdough pizzas were very light and moist in the rim.  The one pizza he grated orange zests on the freshly baked pizza.  I really liked that citrus taste.

Thanks Steve for inviting me over tonight.  I had fun!  ;)

Steve,

You tiling job looks great!   8)

I wonder at some point in time if you are going to post pictures of the beginning of your build in the Airstream to where it is finished now.  I would love to see all of those pictures if you want to post them.

I think a build report would be neat but know it would also be a lot of work to go back and arrange everything and what not....but I am happy for the pics that are up and they do give a real good idea to what all was involved in the making of this great pizza trailer. Once again, good job Steve...excellent!!  :pizza:

Some more test pies tonight.
 I lowered the thickness factor to .085 but I think it's still too high. I also raised the Hy. to 62% which gave a very soft crust. More Neapolitan than N.Y. Of the three test flours,(occident, KASL and GM full strength) I and my testers all liked the occident best. Here are the pies in the order listed.

These look absolutely amazing! Great work!!!!!

Thanks cpt.

 I must admit, I've been lax with the experiments lately and have been using the Occident flour at 61% hydration. It makes a pretty good pie, though I still plan to keep playing with different things to make it better.
 The oven is a Forno Bravo casa g60.
