Oh yeah these were all made with Bianco ground tomatoes. I am sad to say they are not my top
Choice for tomato sauce.  :(

That pepperoni pie looks incredible! One of the finest looking pies ever posted, IMO.

That means A LOT Craig! Thank you very much!!! I have stumbled on a local butcher here in KC that has incredible local meat. That pepperoni has me SPOILED now. I think a lot of us here are just tying to catch up to you. I know I am. Thank again Craig.

Hi Chad,


Please post several pictures of the underskirt and cross section of the cornicione next time.  The 950B is on the top of my list as possible replacement for my Forno Bravo.  I want to see what it can do. 


Your progress is amazing!

Between Chad, Robyn B, John C, and Antoine, there is little doubt in my mind what it can do.

Beautiful pie and one of my all-time favorites. Next time try it with twice as many sprout leaves.

Wow Chad, your pies look fantastic! 

Life events have kept me away from my oven and the forum for a while, but time for me to get back to it.  Much to my surprise, the Brussels sprouts, pancetta pizza has become a family favorite.

Do you mind posting your workflow for your dough?  Fresh yeast, starter, or ADY?

Thank you TXCraig and Pizzaddict!

Pizzaddict:

I have been using a 60% hydration and a 0.4% IDY (still haven't done the natural starter yet).  I pretty much to a 24 hour bulk and a 24 ball.  I do mine in my basement since it stays pretty cold down there.

TXCraig:  I am going to be making the sprout pie again tomorrow.  The wife and everyone loved it (including me)!  I will definitely be adding more sprouts!

Since I can't get to Paulie's I had to make my own version of the Cherry Jones.

I plan on roofing the top to match my house and stoning the chimney. Still debating a ledge, but as of right now I have no plans for that. I will see how it all goes and maybe put a granite ledge in later.

Thanks Antoine and Craig!

Awesome stuff... I have to say I am VERY jealous.  Hoping next month to finish all material selections and sign the contract for getting the back yard pavers going... I still have a long time before I can even begin the FGM950 build in my yard.  Might get to that phase next Spring.  :(  Need to make friends with someone with a pizza oven in Dallas to get my fix before then!!!  LOL!  I guess trips to Cane Rosso will have to tide me over for a while longer.  On the bright side, I did take delivery of the new grill on Monday.  Grilled 3 of 4 nights this week already.  Sedona 36" by Lynx... just an amazingly well built product!

Hi Brian,

We will resume the pizza classes in the fall. I'll be sure to let you know the dates and hope to have you over. This one will be on me  ;)

Thank you Antoine and Craig!  It was short notice so only a few different pies thrown together with ingredients I had laying around in the fridge.

I feel your pain Brian! You will love your oven once it's up and running.

Chad
