Raised the bar a little here if that's even possible.  I remember reading BTBs favorite formulation included rice flour.  I picked some up over a year ago and never used it.  I also wanted to go for a true Malnatis butter crust.  This pie turned out fantastic.  Notice how low that crust is (a Malnatis trademark) Probably the most comparable I have come to a BTB Malnatis creation.

9 inch formulation:

85.5% Gold Metal AP flour 158g
5.4% semolina flour - 10g
9.1% rice flour - 17g
46% water - 85g
14% corn oil - 26g
7% butter - 13g
1/4 and 1/8 IDY
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp sugar

Preheat stone to 500.  Baked at 475 for 10 mins and 16 mins at 450.

Cheese: 12oz Mozz and Prov sliced
Tomatoes: Alta Cucina Plum tomatoes pulsed in FP 4 times

This one was amazing guys.  The tomatoes are still key though to hitting that elite level.

Nate, do you add salt or anything to the tomatoes? Or drain?

Salt and oregano.  Yes I drain.

Thanks Nate. Not to sound obsessive but when you drain, do you drain before you pulse in the FP, after or both?

And when do you put the seasoning in, before or after the drain/pulse?

This works but you have to drain twice a lot.

I drain from bowl by hand (smash and tilt method).  I find that mesh removes too much moisture.  I got this down to a science CB.  LOL

Thanks for the compliment but there is some tough competition here.  Would love to get together with some of the guys to have a cookoff.  I really want to try a pie made by BTB.
