Hodgey's Podgey Pizza Thread
From the dictionary:
hodge·podge (hŏj′pŏj′) n.
A mixture of dissimilar ingredients; a jumble.
I figured like others here have done, it would be a good idea to chronicle my pizza adventures in my own thread. So here is my first post of what I hope are many. Pass the napkins please!
Yesterday I had a luncheon/pizza party for people I work with. I made Neo-Ny style pies in my WFO with a small active fire with temps in the range of 690*F floor & 800*F dome, pies turned out great. After clean up I had to go back to work and then returned home to a pile of chores that needed accomplished.
When I finished "7:00ish" with chores, I went to the WFO and checked the oven temps and found that having put the door on after lunch and allowed to sit for 5-6 hrs, that the oven had settled/equalized into perfect NY oven temps. Normally I do my bakes in the evening and don't get to see oven temps until some time the next day, which are typically in the mid 400's and I bake bread.
Every where I checked, with my IR gun was in the neighborhood of 550*F with no active fire. Hmmm, I have a dough left, a guy could have pizza for lunch and dinner, can't he? So, I took the dough out and warmed it up and made the pie pictured below.
A friend of mine ask me to make this pizza a few years ago, he described it from memory to me, it was what he called shrimp and tomato pizza. This is getting fine tuned into a favorite of ours. Ny dough with a creamy garlic sauce with a hint of cayenne pepper and Old Bay, sprinkled with salad size shrimp, crumbled bacon, mozzarella, three cheese blend "Colby-Cheddar-Pepper jack" and topped with fresh slices of garden tomato's. When I eat it, I also put a dash or two of Franks hot sauce.
Side note: I didn't have enough All-Trumps for this batch so I used 70% AT and 30% AP
