This was another one of my doughs made with Pizzeria flour and the Ischia starter.

This was my third dough ball made with Ischia starter and Rinforzato flour that the Ischia starter was only acitvated after it sat out all week.  I never tasted a pizza made with a starter that made a sourdough that the crumb was more sour.  That is why I tried this.

Amazing airstream, very nice job turning into a mini-pizzeria!

Great shots, Norma!  Your pies looked great, any thoughts on the flavor?  Too sour, just right?
I'd rather eat one good meal a day than 3 squares of garbage.

Scot,

We all did have a great time.  :) I see your wheels turning if your brother has an Airstream that just looks like Steve’s and Bob’s.  Their journey went from locating an Airstream in NY, to even taking the Airstream off the frame, (to be able to reinforce it) to ripping everything out of the inside.  It was quite a journey for Steve and Bob. Maybe Steve wants to tell more about the build.

Brian,

The WFO in the Airstream was just being tried out yesterday and more is needed to be learned when to put more wood in the oven.  My bakes really weren’t that high in temperature.  My last pie that I made with the starter that was a lot more on the sour side was interesting in the taste.  It wasn’t really sour, but I could taste the sourdough taste a lot more.  I prefer the sourdough notes of a starter that is fed more in a pizza.  For some reason, which I don’t know why, my doughs balls didn’t perform as I wanted when they were opened.  I don’t know if it was the heat in the Airstream or if I didn’t make the doughs right.  Steve didn’t have any problems with his dough balls.

@Norma- Thanks for introducing my project to the forum. If we ever come up with a name for the thing, I'll start a thread in the "Shop Talk" section, complete with all the construction photos along the way. We still have some work to do before we hit the road, but it's mostly done.
I must say though, I am pleased with the first test bake, as far as my own dough is concerned. I also thought yours and Bobs pies tasted great too.
When I die, I want my remains scattered all over Disney World. Also, I don't want to be cremated!

Now that looks cool. Looks like there is a lot of room in there to move around and breath.

Very very cool! Pies look awesome!

Just curious, how hot did it get inside (the prep area, not the oven)?

Colonel_Klink,

I am not sure how hot it was in the Airstream, but it was hot.  There is an exhaust fan that Steve and Bob installed and another vent in the ceiling.  It wasn't really much hotter right in front of the oven.  There weren't any other fans going though.  It was very hot and humid in our area yesterday with no air going outside.  Maybe Steve can guess just how hot it was.

Steve,

Lol, OMG those pictures!  The last one I was really hot, but guess the beers didn't help.  :o  How did I do auditioning for the job as helper?   >:D :angel:  Will I make the cut?  I didn't even know I was auditioning.  You and Bob sure gave me the greatest surprise in seeing how the WFO baked the first time.  ;D

Your Ischia pies were delicious and so was that Vermont pepperoni!   ;D  We even forgot to try out Bob's Aioli.

Steve, Norma. Those pies are beautiful - especially those pepperoni pies - they are both drop-dead gorgeous in every way!

Norma, how much Ischia culture did you add (%) to the pie that was so sour? What was the fermentation time and temp?

Thanks,
Craig
