I've made a knock off of Andrew's Vodka-Roni pie, cheese and pepperoni with post bake vodka sauce. Really delicious combination.

Edit: forgot to mention the pizzas look really good!

Been a while!! Mostly because my pies were coming on par with other pies I've posted here previously and didn't feel the need to constantly update.

Last night was a really big success and I got a new little light rig to take better photos of my pizza so I thought I'd share.

- Two 16" Pies
- 58% Hyd, 3% Salt, 2% Oil, 1% Sugar, 0.25% Yeast.
- 72hr CF
- 500g Doughball weight
- Bianco DiNapoli / Jersey Fresh mix
- Grande Whole Milk Mozz
- Meatballs from a local shop on one pie, refrigerated, then sliced before baking.
- Baked at 550-ish (Steel temp) for 9-10 mins

So I don't have a light in my crappy oven, and so I used the light I bought for photos aimed at the oven and my launches were perfect for both pies. Doing that from now on. Felt blind before and always ended up with a misshaped pie.

These both tasted great, maybe a little too much cheese on both, still trying to figure out the perfect melt. My sauce could've been better too but I was overall very happy with these. Can't wait to bake again.

This round was actually All Trumps Unbleached Unbromated. I do like to do a 50/50 mix of AT and KAAP though!

Mr. Satan,
Those are really great looking pies!
.had plenty of NYC pizza,and this looks top shelf. Way top.
Cheese/sauce balance looks quite optimal, actually modest in cheese in a good way..bottom nice and toasted.

Those are hella good pies, but of course, you're...well. you know  >:D

Looks like you still got the touch.

I did a bake last week for the first time in months. I could definitely tell that I was out of practice but the results were still decent enough to calm the cravings.
I said to my little one, "come here so I can change you".
He said "change only comes from within".  :-/

Pies of Satan, your pie looks like the pizza I just had today in Staten Island, at Amici Pizza. Very similar crust, almost identical. What flour do you use?

I usually do a mix of King Arthur Sir Galahad + All Trumps Unbleached / Unbromated but this was 100% All Trumps as it's all I had on hand.

Been quite some time since I've posted. I just wanted to show the crew what I've been up to since learning at pizzerias and also so much from these forums over the last few years.

I now do a popup once a week, mostly for friends, and friends of friends - very low key, out of my house.

These are just some of the pies over the last 27 weeks I've been doing it. Still out of my crappy home oven, on a baking steel that reads about 570F after an hour preheat, no broiler ever as its a drawer broiler. I do close to 20 pies a week and the oven keeps up somehow.

The hydration is in the low 60's, I say that not to be vague but it changes week to week. 2.7% salt, 0.8% sugar, around 2% oil. The flour is King Arthur Sir Lancelot. its a 50+ hour cold ferment with a few hours on each side at RT, sometimes i'll go up to 72 as well.

The tomatoes are Alta Cucina blended with a Jersey tomato, the brand of the Jersey tomato changes depending on the week, sometimes its Jersey Fresh, sometimes First Field, or sometimes Sclafani - all in the same family. There is salt, evoo, and Calabrian oregano in the sauce. It's stick blended and pretty thin!

The cheese is Grande East Coast Blend cut with a very small amount of retail Polly-O part skim which gives me some of those dark brown burnt cheese bubbles which I am a huge fan of.

Of course, like any pizza maker, i'll always be tweaking everything, but it is quite nice to see people say nice things about the pizza as it is right now.

1. Regular pie for the house after service
2. Regular for a customer

5. White pie with spicy soppresata & mikes extra hot honey
6. Pepperoni, Jalapeno & mikes extra hot honey
7. DiFara style for the week Dom passed away. RIP
8. Couple slices

Wow, that one with the pepperoni and jalapeno looks perfect to me.
The pizza I dream of!

Can you please explain something about your exact method and stretching technique?

Big greetings, Hansen
