This one is made from the same process except IDY was used.  Some adjustments were made to the flame and this one baked about 70-80sec.  It's a spin off of Craig's mushroom truffle oil pie.  I love the flavor of this pie.  I used a white sauce, cheese, then mushrooms, truffle oil, and black pepper.

What is your white sauce made from ?

Houston and Dallas are a mere 3-4 hour drive apart. Less time then it takes to fire up a WFO :-D
hint hint >:D

If I was living in Dallas I would make the trip.   To have some of Craig's pizza and hang out with him is worth it.  People don't come better than Craig that's for sure.  But I don't think it will be long before several Houstonians get BS ovens.  Then it's only a matter of time until we see what Craig do a side by side comparison against his Acunto pies.

This one was a bit of EVOO, butter, garlic, milk, parmesan/pecorino mix I had left over, salt and pepper.

This might be a potential entry. Has Craig ever used elk meat? Maybe someone could adapt this recipe for a contest-worthy 60 sec. Neapolitan pie. I especially like the beginning and ending with "Praise the Lord and Pass the Elk" It's fun watching anyway.

Take care!

The pathologically precise are annoying, but right!

Wouldn't it be fair to say that if Craig is not able to reproduce a "Craig's clone" on a BS, then nobody can?

I think that would be the ultimate challenge..... ;D

If someone wants to haul one over here, we can make some pies in the BS and the Acunto side by side out of the same batch of dough.
Pizza is not bread.

Doc, separate the unit from the legs.  Put the unit in the passenger seat and the legs in the back seats.

Put a wig on the unit in the front seat and Doc can drive in the HOV lane :-D.

Most people don't realize how big a state Texas is. From Prosper, TX, where Doc lives, to Craig's house is around 275 miles, with a drive time of around 4 1/2 hours if there are no material traffic slowdowns or stopping to eat and refueling.

If you flip the state of Texas to the East, it extends into the Atlantic.  If you flip it to the West, it reaches the Pacific.  A short drive is a couple of hours, and if you live out West, you might drive 4 hours to have dinner.  Texas is big.

I've lived in New England and Texas and Texas IS Big!  I think it took me 40m to drive from one end of Rhode Island to the other.

Ya I'm the opposite, I've lived in 5 states and all of them big. I've driven all the way across Texas. For me i guess I don't comprehend how close everything is in the NE. Or maybe I don't comprehend the size of Alaska.

Do a before and after with the reflector if you can so we can see the differences?

This oven looks more and more promising every day....

Very very nice! I've got a new goal. I will definitely be trying the deflector soon.

Paul, your latest pies using Craig's methods baked in your 2stone showed some nice leoparding.   Please consider posting some of your pies here.

Chau

I guess it's time to give the old peel a light sanding. :o

An oblong Craig Dough pie. Looked funny, tasted great!  Back to the2Stone thread!

P.S.

I haven't forgotten I said I'd make Kenji's(?) sausage.  It seems odd to be making sausage in this heat, if that makes any sense!
