Getting better thanks to your recipe Scott. My stretching is getting better and the pizza is getting a lot thinner, more and more true NY style. I am also down to a 4 minute bake time at 525 degrees on half inch steel. I am getting tons of positive feedback from the guinea pigs at work that I bake for a couple of times a week. I am also getting great results for garlic knots using 1 ounce balls rolled into roughly six inch strips and tied together baked on a cookie sheet right over the steel for about eight minutes (until golden brown)...then drizzle with melted butter and sprinkled with garlic powder!
I know this is a little off topic but I wanted advice about taking this adventure to the next level from you NY style experts. I eventually want to start my own shop but I am in the Navy for one more year and want to gain experience selling my pizzas on a commercial level. I want to start with a mobile oven trailer (not a full blown food truck but just a trailer with oven mounted). I noticed a lot of WFO trailers on the market but I know most true NY style pizzas are produced on gas deck ovens. Can I get advice on mobile ovens specifically for NY style pizza? Is WFO the way to go and just crank down the heat or are there mobile options for deck or any other types? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks! And here are the latest results:
The pizza was three meat (pepperoni, spicy Italian sausage, and bacon)
The garlic knots were terrific.
