Greg,

Your pies look fantastic, on your next cook is there any chance you could video it I'd love to see it in motion?

Hi,

Recipe adapted from @Napoli72 (http://www.laverace.info/forum/viewtopic.php?f=77&t=472)

1 : Marharita
2 : A small "bianca" pizza with remaining dough (180gr) : cream, mozzarella, shallot, garlic, sprinkled with parmesan, fresh basil from the garden

I made a little video as soon as the installation is done, I post on the forum

Greg,

Great looking pies.

FWIW - it's very easy to make your pictures look as good as your pizza (and show how good your pizza really looks). Just about every free photo program will have have a couple automatic tools to fix the color and contrast. For example, I saved a couple of your pictures and used Auto Color and Auto Contrast in Picasa (free from Google) - two clicks of the mouse total. I posted the before and after below. Sometimes Auto Contrast makes pictures look better - sometimes not; it can easily be undone.

Thank you Craig,   :)

I fix it tonight for the photos (no time last night...)

Well, here is the short video that I made last night with my phone (not great quality).

I'll post some of the cooking in the oven tonight.

Do not laugh!  :angel:

Greg,

Thank you very much for taking the time to video you're process, I know it not easy as I was embarrassed to post any pics of my domestic oven pies but here is one I baked last week.

This was the first time I had used my homegrown sourdough starter using Craig's garage recipe. The pizzas tasted great and the rise in the Cornicione was the largest I have had to date whither with starter, ADY or cake yeast. I maybe let the dough go a wee bit over but I was delighted with the result nonetheless.

Greg,

That oven looks like it cooks superbly and I see that you have your extra stone in place, has it made a noticeable difference, and would you recommend using an extra stone now that you have had time to judge its merits?

Is there much of a temperature drop when you have cooked a pie or when you open the door, I'm wondering if I had guests how many pies I could cook with one preheat?

Thank you.

Stephen

Hello Stephen,

Yes the second stone really brings a lot faster cooking, the bottom of the pizza is really cooked perfectly (see my last photos).

For temperature, I bake the pizza when the top is 500C, the stone is about 400C. Then this is the oven thermostat that regulates the temperature and quickly to stay at 500C, after an hour, I can bake a lot of  pizzas without problem.

Really enjoying the process videos as well as baking in the oven  :)

Do you feel the need to open the oven and rotate pizzas to cook more evenly like how they do in wood fired ovens?

VarunS  :)

Yes

Yes I opened the oven at the end of cooking the pizza and I turn it, I finish cooking with the oven open and the pizza very close to the high resistance (as in a wood oven), it works well I think.

2 pizzas at home tonight !

Very hard to lower the dough ..... my dough was too advanced  (but I could not do otherwise unavailable to lower earlier).

Little Leopard (Why ? i don't know...), Caputo blu pizzeria with protocol sourdough starter home made, 66% hydrat.

1 : A fall "bianca" pizza  : cream, buffalo mozzarella, chanterelles, black trumpets, parmesan DOP, olive oil flavored with truffles, fresh parsley from the garden.
2 : Margharita

Ciao  :chef:

Tonight pizzas at home  :)

Caputo blue, sourdough starter home made, hydrat in 72 % 18h+6h,  hard to lower, no holding, and there it is necessary to watch its maturation, I believe that the more we hydrate, the more that mature fast.... On the other hand it is "Big one" for the crumb  :o

I specify that I molded the dough altogether in the hand (in the end, I know how to not say if there is a difference with the robot, i am not sure...), also I noticed, the more the maturation is short, the less there is of leopards...


A Bianca: cream, mozzarella, heart of marinaded artichauds, mushrooms, basil
And Margarita

Hello
 
Pizza in the evening, 24 TA (12 +12), Caputo blu pizzeria with protocol sourdough starter home made, 68% hydrat, matured in the box between 17.8 and 18 C. As I said last time, more hydrating, more maturation happens quickly, and then I think I could bake 2 hours more.

 
1 - Bianca cream, mozzarella di Bufala, small olives of Nyons, arugula, olive oil
2 - Margarita
