    Thanks!  Not really a star.  Still have many problems with understanding doughs and different pizzas.

  • Trying a naturally leavened NY style dough.  Using the same formulation as usual, except using the Ischia/milk kefir starter.  First bulk then balled, at controlled temperatures.

    Doing this to try to figure out what went wrong on the Detroit/Greek dough that also used the Ischia/milk kefir starter.

  • This post doesn't have anything to do with flavor of dough.  Only reason am posting here is maybe it might turn out to be a good blend of cheese for pizzas at market.

    Had a little bit of a problem.  Was rushing around to pick up flour in Harrisburg, and get to market before the people set-up for the Arts and Craft Festival at Root's on Friday.  Did pick up one loaf of Saputo whole milk mozzarella.  Was going to call the distributor about picking up cheese for market on Friday.  Completely forgot about calling for the regular cheese.  Remembered on Sunday, and then knew it couldn't be picked up on Monday because of it being Labor Day.  My daughter said she would go to Rest. Depot to pick up some cheese on Sunday.  Called them and asked what kind of white cheddar they carried.  Picked the sharp white and told my daughter to get an extra loaf of the Saputo whole milk mozzarella.  Had some bags of shredded cheese leftover from last week and one loaf of the regular cheese. 

    Mixed everything together today and the blend does taste good.  Now to see how the blend melts and tastes when the pizzas are made.

    Did taste the sharp cheddar and it tastes almost like the cheese used at market.

    Hopefully there will be enough cheese tomorrow.

    CaptBob,

    Might be in trouble if the new white cheddar doesn't melt well.  At least won't have to shut down for a day.  Don't want to change things too much though.  Did know that Saputo whole milk mozzarella and the regular cheese work well together.  Never will forget how the regular cheese clumped so badly at the Caputo Cup.  :-D Never thought that would work out okay.

  • The naturally leavened dough ball was very hard to open and the skin was very elastic.  When the skin started to tear gave up and made a smaller pizza. 

    The new cheese blend worked out good.  For all of the NY style pizzas the cheese didn't brown more than normal.  For the longer baked pan pizzas there was more browning on the melted cheese.

  • For some odd reason my cell wouldn't go live on facebook today.  It kept shutting off when trying to take a video or photo.  Took the video with the digital camera.

    Thanks CaptBob!  Hope you get to stop in someday.  Scott sent me a text Monday evening saying he might stop at market Tuesday after he went to Bethlehem, Pa.  I said that would be great, but wasn't sure he would come.  Wish I had made a naturally leavened dough for him to try.

    A few more photos.  Will post the couple photos from the cell before it acted up in another post.  Just when you want a cell to work it doesn't want to cooperate.  >:(  After Scott left it worked fine.

    Scott was so surprised that there are plenty of pizza nerds that show up at market.   :-D  A pizza made by Scott on his Instagram account.

  • A fresh sausage and mushroom pie Scott was making for a customer.  Scott even sliced the mushroomw for this pizza.  Scott had us laughing so much.  He really is funny.

    Bill,

    Scott stretched the dough balls so nicely.  He didn't want to stretch all of the way though.  I said the doughs are strong.  Scott said he never mixed a dough with a mixer at home.  He always hand kneads.  Scott asked all kinds of questions about how the plastic bags can work.

    Two photos from Katt.  She just happened to come to market while Scott was there.  She said she had a bone to pick with Scott about what Scott said on Instagram about Little Caesars Detroit Pizza.  :-D  Recently Scott was in Detroit tasting different Detroit style pizzas. The resulting video Scott posted with Katt on Instagram was hilarious.  Can't give a link to that video but guess if anyone has an Instagram account they can look at that video.

    Jeff,

    It is so much fun hanging with Scott!  Will try to post a couple of photos that Luis took.  He sent them to my cell, but had to reduce their size.  The resulting photos are not really clear.
