Not sure I want to shell out $60 for one.  :o

Wow, .pizza prices are all over the place. Looks like Domain.com is the cheapest at $25.59 after 20% off:

I got tired of looking at little pictures of pizza, so I made a page for some bigger pics: www.lindbergs.us

Fantastic. Feels like I can reach right out and grab a slice.  Definitely makes me hungry for pizza! 

By the way, are you getting ready to start some hot peppers? I am going to start early this year. Tomatoes too.  I want to get those babies ripe earlier in the summer this year.

Thanks. Very little effort goes into the photography. It happens too fast. Out of the oven, a couple quick pics, and the hands start reaching in. It goes to show that if you use a decent camera and take pictures in sufficiently high resolution with enough light, you can usually pull something decent out.

Having the taste of the IDY crust fresh on my mind, these SD pies were really outstanding. I was kind of hoping that there wouldn't be a big difference as baker's yeast is so much simpler. Alas, SD is a lot better. There is so much more flavor, you can hardly even compare them. I had the same guests both nights, and they all commented that these pies were much better.

I ran the oven about 50F cooler than normal ~800F on the deck and 900F on the walls farthest from the fire. I didn't time them, but I guess they were about 65-70 seconds, so maybe +10+/- seconds vs. my normal 55 seconds. I liked some things better this way and some things better in the faster baked pies. The SD flavors in the crust really shine with the slightly less dark leoparding.

I'm really starting to like shrimp on pizza.

Some pies from last night:

WOW CRAIG ! very good pizza whit shrimp  ^^^ good leavening and baking perfect :pizza:

Hi Craig,

Just a question about one of your pizzas. The white pizza  with mushrooms intrigues me…  The mushrooms were cooked ? Or are they put just raw after the cooking of the pizza ?

Thank you
Nice day

Greg,

I put them on raw then bake. I slice them in several thicknesses. Most are pretty thin, but I leave some a bit thicker so I get a depth of different flavors. The less cooked thicker slices taste very different from the thinner slices that cook through.

The pie is: mozz (ideally buffalo), mushrooms, Parmigiano-Reggiano, black pepper, and a pinch of salt. Bake, and a swirl of white truffle oil post bake.

It is really strange, it looks like they were not affected by the heat of the oven, not burned...

I retain the composition, that will be the object of a next pizza for me.

Thank you

I don't think I've ever done it a different way.

Use more mushrooms than you think you need.
