I loved to watch the Hunt brothers dress and bake their Detroit style pizzas in Craig's oven inside.  I had a nice chat with the Hunt brothers (Brandon and Zane) of Via 313 and they sure were interesting to talk to.  I think Peter might have asked them some questions when I wasn't inside though.  They baked their Detroit style pizzas on Craig's one pizza stone.  The meats they used sure were delicious and so were their Detroit style pizzas.  ;D  The Hunt brothers pizzas looked picture perfect to me. 

The only problem of being inside is I couldn't get to watch what was going on outside.  Photos are in inside and outside.  If members look at the flames in the one photo in this set of posts members might be surprised what happened when Craig lite logs on both sides of his oven for about a half an hour.  I thought it was sure interesting to see what happened.  The photos of when both sides of Craig's oven had logs lite will be in another set of photos.

Thanks for the pictures Norma.  Peter, Bert from MPO also made a showing.  It was nice to meet Bert.  I'm sorry I was late on Saturday and didn't get a chance to play with the MPO.  I had asked Bert to bring his MPO to the party.  This visit was definitely too short for me.  If I can go again next year I will try to arrive several days in advance to have a proper look around Houston.

Chau,

I agree it was nice to meet Bert too.  I didn't know Bert brought along his MPO.  I would have be interested in seeing Bert's MPO if I would have know he had it along with him.

I think Bert had it available to me but didn't actually bring it into the party.  Sorry I got so sidetracked Bert.

The first photos in these next set of posts is when Diana opened one of Craig's dough balls, dressed and made a pizza in Craig's oven.  Sorry, Diana I should have fiddled around with my camera so there would be a better lighting for the photos.  You sure were a pro though in how you opened the dough ball and baked the pizza.  I was too full at that point to try anymore pizza though.  I sure could go more more slices right now though.  Great job Diana!  :chef:

The next photos are from Sunday morning.  I would be interested to hear what other members think happens when both sides of the oven have logs that are lite.  Maybe Craig can explain what happens better than I can if no one can guess what happens.

One more set of photos to resize if I find time tonight.

Omid's technique, I wish I had video.  it was really enlightening to watch this method. he started in the flour and worked his way down the bench where there was very little flour.

Chau: have you posted your mozzarella-making here on PM anywhere? I suppose I'm being lazy and can use the "search" function. I always think it's funny about making mozzarella and then using it on pizza — you start with a mess of jumbled-up curds, melt and knead them together into a ball, and then ... cut it all apart into a jumbled mess again. Heh.


Adam,

I am not Chau, but think this is Chau's thread for making fresh mozzarella from curd.

I was thinking/hoping the same thing!
Thanks for all the pictures and descriptions, the pies look awesome! Boy, there certainly was quite a collection of pizza knowledge at this summit! Looks like we pizza makers here in the Northeast having something to live up to. Great job guys and gals!

40 Neapolitan and 3 or 4 Detroit

Craig, please call me tomorrow if you have time, I PM'd you my phone numbers, so I can personally apologize for taking so long to respond to your generous invite and my foolish putting off getting back to you. Reading these posts and seeing the pics makes me sick I wasn't there. Been fighting 7 herniated discs in my back and neck and have to plan accordingly for plane trips and such and waited to long. Please include me on the next Summit if one comes up and call me as you can in the next day or 2. I'm sure you are busy cleaning up. I also want to tell all the rest of you I sure wish I would have got to meet you and hope to in the future. Homemade Capicola promised on the next one!!!
