Neapolitan Pizza with Pizza Party WFO
« on: January 25, 2015, 01:29:56 PM »
Last week I got my Pizza Party Oven from Tuscany/Italy. Thanks Simone Banchi for the quick delivery and great communication! After "burning it in" during the week  I finally put the oven through its paces yesterday. Conditions were pretty harsh - grim winter day in Germany with snow and frosty temperatures and a couple of my best friends around so I wasn't exactly sober when I baked the first pie. Prepared them inside and then going outside to the oven  for the bake. Not ideal when it comes to fire managment (which is key with this oven) but the oven performed flawlessly nonetheless and I am very satisfied considering this was my first bake with the oven. Most of the pies were baked in 60-70 seconds- some could have stayed a couple seconds more under the dome. I think the bottom of the pies was really good and generally taste was great (wood fire adds a certain something - it's not smoky but a taste that is more rustique and fresh at the same time for sure) and better than in my pyrolysis oven setup that I used before. Also freshness of the toppings was really great - though it's almost impossible to get good basil at this time of the year in Germany.
I really look forward to exploring the oven more and there will be more "baking adventures" soon!

Nice.

Don,
Nice start!
We're going to rely on you to set the pace with this oven.  I believe there are many of us that have noses pressed up against the glass on this one. Try not to let the fire go out for too long.
Thanks.

Roman

Thanks everyone for the comments! I forgot to show this one in my original post. Sourdough San Francisco Starter (still waiting for my Ischia Starter) - as you can see it was clearly under-fermented. Almost no oven spring - I don't know why, I think I fermented it a little to cold (57°F) and SD seems to be way more picky about temperature and fermentation than Baker Yeast. I will do more pies with sourdough next time. My bread was awesome with the sourdough - fermented at 70°F.

Did you make the bread in the pizza party oven? That's something I'm still working on.

No, I made it in my home oven a day before...I was too busy making pizza and drinking with my friends on Saturday. But next time I am making pizza I want to time it to make bread when the oven's cooling down...
