When you're making pizza on Valentine's Day - gotta do hearts right? I was pretty happy with how they turned out! I also took the dough scraps from shaping and made some garlic knots, which was a nice bonus. :)

Made up my other two doughs tonight for dinner. Came out really good! I am definitely liking the results better aiming for a stone temp of 700 and setting the burner to medium. Bake time about 3 - 3.5 minutes.

Frankie has decided he is a BIG fan of pizza... With three hungry boys in the house, I can only imagine how many pizzas I will need to bake when they are teenagers!  :-D

Beautiful pies (and nice looking boy too)!

Dollops of straight ricotta on the white or do you mix in any seasonings?

Thanks! Straight ricotta with oregano on top. I make it following the tips you gave me a while back. So good!

Made up a couple thin and crispy pizzas for dinner last night. I used the same formula and procedure I have in the past, which is from nick57. They turned out really good! Since there was a chance of storms, I decided to bake them in my house oven. I used a stone on the bottom rack. My procedure ended up being about 3 min par bake in cutter pan. Cooled on rack. Then topped and baked for 3 min on stone, then moved to top rack for another 3 min. Oven temp started at 550 but I dropped it to 525 after preheating. My only goof was I forgot to dock the first one, so it puffed up like a balloon in the oven. Cut some slits with a knife and patted it down and it was fine.

I was originally planning on a buffalo chicken pizza to use up some leftovers, but switched to a BLT pizza since we had leftover bacon as well. First time doing a BLT on thin crust and it was great! My 4 year old even said his favorite was the "salad" pizza, which surprised me...  :)

My wife also made some awesome breadsticks with the dough scraps from the pizzas.

Here is my recent Sicilian pizza attempt. I decided to try parbaking this time and was really happy with the result. Last time, it turned out a little gummy and I had trouble with the bottom getting overdone. So for this one, I baked at 450 with a 10 min parbake (no sauce), followed by 10 additional minutes after topping the pizza. The bottom was done at that point, so I went ahead and pulled it out of the pan and let it go for 3 more minutes on the top rack to help brown the cheese.

I have another dough in the pan rising on the counter for round two tonight.  :D

Ron,

Your Sicilian pizza looks quite good but what really matters is if Frankie liked it  ;D.

Yes, he definitely enjoyed it! By the end of the meal, he was covered in pizza.  :-D

Just thought I'd share a couple of pizzas I made this weekend. Baked on the Pizza Party oven with my usual setup. I've been really happy with how they have been turning out lately! Feel like I have gotten things dialed in well...  Also, we finally got a garden going again, so I was able to finish them with a little fresh basil.

In other news - we got a very unexpected surprise recently. We're having another baby! Given what happened last time, we certainly were not planning on it, but here we are...  :P

We found out we are having another boy, which makes him our 4th boy. My wife was really hoping for a girl, but no luck! Now the challenge is to pick a name. My other boys are Anthony (Tony), Vincent (Vinnie) and Franklin (Frankie). See the trend there?  :-D We are having a difficult time coming up with another Italian boys name that we like. So what do you guys think?

Been a while since I made pizza - so much so that I was having a hard time remembering my routine!  :-D

Everything came out great though. Really enjoyed the gyro pizza! Our garden is doing well, so I was able to use fresh tomatoes and a tasty sweet pepper. It's a Gypsy Hybrid Pepper and I highly recommend them. First time growing - they have been producing like crazy - even in the hot and humid Texas climate.

Thanks! Funny thing is my wife and I have joked around saying we need to rename everyone so we could have Ninja Turtle names...  :-D  Poor kids - just look what they have to deal with already.
