Yes John, Great looking pies with LARDO (?!?)

Is your Levain at 100% hydration?

What temp did you ferment/bake at?

Took me a while to figure out the "translucent" topping on the second pie. Now I realise it's the lardo from the second pic (duh!) :)
Awesome looking pies there John.  :pizza:

Thanks all.

Yes, pork fat I cured for six months in grey sea salt. Levain was 100% hydration, young. Ferment was around 80 degrees. 3 stretch and folds over an hour, then balled till bake. Caputo pizzeria, 61%, 2.5 salt.

John,

"Nice bake" doesn't do your pizza justice.

Absolutely lovely, though I would expect nothing less.

How would you describe the baked lardo?

Lardo was luscious. Melted on contact. I put it on post bake and domed for a few seconds.

Your pizzas always have such an ethereal quality, at least in appearance.  They are so beautifully prepared, and stunningly photographed.  Just lovely, as always.

Every once in awhile I see gorgeous well used/loved knives/kitchen utensils that I wish I could taste what they have over the  years.  :P

gorgeous; your pics have inspired me to try this soon.  Have you tried a greater percentage of levain?

Again, thank you all for the positive comments.

In regards to levain I have never gone beyond 25%. I want some degree of extended fermentation so taste, texture and appearance somewhat approach a longer, slower ferment. The only reason I do it this way instead of an 18-24 hour session is because I simply no longer have the time to tend to it. Technically this dough is bread, not Neapolitan pizza.
