I made 2 - 24HR poolish doughs (16" pizzas) and was quite pleased with the results.  Very lively dough with lots of flavor in the crust.

66%HR including the oil.  Power Flour/GM Superlative blend.  I had recently tried to incorporate a duel steel and stone method with some broiler action for a faster bake, but decided it didn't make the pizza better and was too complicated. This time I went back to a KISS method of a single stone with a surface temp of 575F baked for about 6 mins.

This one was homemade meatball, margherita pepperoni and basil.  Sliced mozz on the bottom and sauce on top.

During a recent trip to San Francisco my son mentioned that he liked one of the Neapolitan pizzas we tried.  Despite having little experience with this type of pizza, I promised I'd try to make him one when we got back. 

This was a 63%H, 3.5% Ischia, 2.5% salt, Central Milling 00N Organic Flour dough - 36 bulk 61-63F, 12 ball 61-63F.
 
The dough was very good.  Easy to handle, nice fermentation, great flavor.  Blackstone baking technique could certainly use some refining - this was 800F for about 80 seconds with some doming, shuffling, etc.

Milled Cento sauce w/ Calab chili oil, Rosa Grande Pepperoni, Jalapeño, Pecorino, EVOO, Buffalo Mozz. (Thanks Craig!)

He was a happy camper, but like most 10 year olds he likes a paler crust.  I just couldn't bring myself to pulling it out of the oven sooner.  I guess if I really got into this style I could experiment with that.  I always think the dough is going to taste doughy and raw if I pull it to soon.

Thanks Bill,  It was tasty for sure.  It's fun to change it up now and again and try different styles.  As you know I'm a thin and crispy NY guy at heart and that will always be my favorite.  Too many pizzas .. too little time.

BTW - I loved the thicker cut Rosa Grande.  I thought I liked Margherita better, but they are both great in different ways.  Rosa Grande is smokier and sweeter.

Oh and also a bit of forum humor ... I realized I didn't have jalapeño and noticed we had some chopped leftover jalapeño in the fridge from a previous dinner.  They were a few days old and starting to get a little soft, etc.  I literally was about to drive to the store just for one jalapeño because I knew they weren't going to be great. I decided not to go because I thought i was being a little insane, but on the finished pie it absolutely made a difference both visually and taste wise.  I wonder how many folks here would have driven to the store for one jalapeño?  :-D
