Norma your pies look fantastic. And, might I say, your granddaughter is beautiful, you must be very proud of her. Congrats on the new BS!!!

I'm completely jealous

Ron,

You could get a BS too.   ;D  I almost resisted, but soon caved in.    :-D

Mine comes next week.  But I'll be on a cruise.  So Pizza in about 11-12 days for me!  :(

Norma, your pizzas look freaking awesome!

Qarl,

Have fun on your cruise.  The BS will wait until you get back.

Thanks for your kind words.

How did you enjoy the Taste Norma ?? threy look amazing

John,

I think the taste was really good.  Not as good as Craig's pizza, but up there with the best that I have ever had at a pizzeria.  The crumb is moist and the pizzas do fold nicely.

Jon,

Thanks so much!  I was going to try you tiger lily pizza today, but all of the buds bloomed.  I am proud of my granddaughter and thanks for saying she is beautiful.  My granddaughter and great-granddaughter are now living with me.  I have to get used to having a small child around again.   :-D

Try just the petals. Snap a few off and taste test them. They have a mild floral bitterness that I found quite pleasant. Not as bitter as many bitter greens I like. And yes, I have the 2 granddaughters across the street, 4 & 8, and when they were toddlers I watched them like a hawk because our house is far from child proof anymore, and working in a critical care children's hospital made me even more watchful :o :o

Jon,

I will try the petals.  I like arugula and other some other bitter greens so I guess I would also like the tiger lily petals on a pizza. 

I can only imagine how much you watched your granddaughters since you work in a critical care unit of a children's hospital.  ;D  My place is far from childproof too.  My great-granddaughter is a little over 3 years old.

These were the next two bakes in the BS.  They both were from frozen dough balls that I had leftover from yesterday.  I put them in the fridge this morning to defrost.  The one was my regular dough and the other one was my Detroit style dough ball of 9.5 ounces.  I forgot to bring home my 16 wooden peel from market, so I had to use my 14 wooden peel for both of these pizzas.  I should have calculated how much I had to take off of my regular market dough ball for a NY style pizza, but I didn't do that.  I just cut part of the dough ball off.

It can be seen at what temperatures I baked both pizzas at.  When fiddling around with the red knob I can just about get constant temperatures which I think is a good thing. 

My NY style was too thick, but in my opinion it was really good in the taste of the crust and the rim did have decent browning.  The Detroit style pizza made into a somewhat round pizza was also good and it almost tasted like a Neapolitan pizza to me and was soft like a Neapolitan pizza.  When I went to load the Detroit style pizza, it didn't load round.  The crumbs were moist on both of these pizzas.  All Trumps flour is used for my regular at market and Occident flour is used for my Detroit style dough.  My Detroit style dough is 75% hydration and no sugar or oil is used in the formulation.

I am really liking how the BS bakes.

I gradually let the temperature go up on the stone this time for both pizzas.  My BS is not modded.

Norma,  other than a few I burnt, I agree that the pizza from the BS is very good -  certainly much better than a home oven, with a steel plate, IMHO.

Barry,

I certainly agree that the BS is the best thing to come along for any pizza makers.  My home oven no matter what is used is crap compared to the BS.  :-D

Jon,

Lol about the young lady part, but that part of your post did make me feel younger.  >:D  I also sure agree on the part of your post that says one the best buys ever.  I was trying to resist purchasing a BS, but am glad I did now.

I've paid WAY more for stuff that was WAY bad, this seemed like a no brainer for the 370ish bucks
