Crumbelievable
« on: December 16, 2013, 02:00:15 PM »
Although he hasn't been too active here in recent months, member John Wozniak (johnnydoubleu) is blowing it up with some recent pies- literally and figuratively.

That's one of the best crumbs I've ever seen.

Thanks very much for the acknowledgement Scott! :)

If anyone has any questions or feedback I am all ears.

Those of you in the Brooklyn area are expressly invited to come and try it on 1/10. Location TBA shortly.

dmc, I'm doing a popup in a friends resto for a few Fridays as a PR effort. Depending on how that goes, things will either move forward or not. I'm pretty optimistic but still just gotta put one foot in front of the next if ya know what I mean.

All, FWIW, this pie was also baked topped/straight through. No parbaking. ;)

I emailed for more info, but now I see he edited that post, so I'll just keep an eye out for the details.  Definitely interested in checking it out.

Looking forward to meeting you, Scott and John.

I think I may take a half day off work that day for this. I like that it's topped and baked all the way through, no par-baking. Very efficient. Seems like a process that would lend itself well to a future shop.
¡Hasta la pizza!

I think you get thread title of the year....I see what you did there. ;)

Look at a stone cutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred-and-first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not the last blow that did it, but all that had gone before.

Feedback?  I have some feedback.  That pie is too big.  I don't believe I'd be able to eat the whole thing.  (But that is an amazing crumb, and I'd certainly try.)

Pleased to share that things have progressed nicely and...

I will have slices available behind the counter at Lo Duca Pizza (B/Q train to Newkirk Plaza, Brooklyn) from the early afternoon on through dinner on 1/10.

Remember also that Di Fara is a 15 minute walk or 5 minute train or car ride from Lo Duca so you can always kill two birds with one stone if you are so inclined.

Wheated, which is pretty effing awesome, is also 5 minutes away, but only open for dinner.

Come on out and have some uniquely delicious pizza!

HI Johnny,

Even before tasting your pizza, this thorough and well thought out web page makes it clear you are talented and able to understand what it takes to get a business beginning.  Really looking forward to coming by tomorrow afternoon, and plan to eat myself silly with yours and Lo Duca's pies, which ai have never tasted.

(And this project is evidence of Brooklyn's power as a neighborhood driven place, not just a dumping ground for the rich mommy and daddy's post college scenester kids it often feels like in half the boro these days. So I'm really excited to see what you all are doing!)

With all due respect to Dom, I wouldn't advise anyone to try di Fara after eating your pies -- they better be prepared for a big drop in quality.
