I have also gotten rid of all the oil out of my formula I like it alot I actually prefer it better I feel that gives me the crust I like, more open (airy)


the pizza seems to just cook better inside of my adore wout it

Sausage, raw or cooked? The debate has happened here, and I came down squarely on the side of pre-cooking. Yup., none of that raw stuff for me!


So okay, I was dead wrong! Now I firmly believe letting the sausage cook on the pie, releasing its savory juices  right on the pizza, is now my go-to plan


Hybrid dough BS. Used Fibrament stone at 850, turned to idle at launch, screened at 30 secs, baked 5 minutes total. I can now confirm, Fibrament is not for me, at least not so far. Its heat stability works against my two zone bake.


Grande and cheddar, dried cranberries, Premio sausage, jalapeno,  fresh mozzarella, crushed pistachios post. Toppings with great thanks, and apologies to Craig. ☺

What a great looking and sounding pizza, Bill! Thanks for providing the details and beautiful photos. Pistachios and sausage: sounds like a terrific combination but not something that would have occurred to me.

Thanks Tony! I'm pistachio-crazed these days.  I sprinkled some along with honey on a slice of sourdough toast and tried to call it dessert..make-believe   baklava...well kinda :-D

Tonight 7 day hybrid,...maybe this is my favorite dough. 50% HG, 40 NP, 10 WW. Sclafani, Grande, fresh mozz, Premio sausage, Rosa Grande pepperoni.  BS bake, 5 mins


Also as shown , Brian Spangler invited me over for a tour of Apizza Scholls,..what a great operation, and a terrific guy!


Also while in town, I sampled a couple of the wonderful inventive pies from Lovely's Fifty Fifty.  Owner and pizzamaker Sarah Minnick changes the selection regularly.

Dude - I love everything about this! Beautiful pizza and you got to hang with Brian. 

Did you learn anything about pizza making while you were with him?  Super jealous, Bill!  :pizza:

Thanks so much Norma, MR, Bob, Jeff...it was a very cool morning!
Jeff, what I learned is that Brian is as quality-driven as you could imagine. Nick, who makes the dough, has worked in other shops in town and told me he'd never seen anything near this level of attention to detail

Just kidding....that's a DiGiorno in the grocery store.
I'll be on pizzamaking hiatus for a couple of months ,the BS now under wraps.
We'll be in a series of motels and Airbnb's for a while eating if not making pizza whenever I can.


See you soon guys!

My guess: Pizza across the country...Chicago, Detroit, Phoenix, Vegas, LA, Portland.

Safe Travels.

Edit: Forgot to include Manheim, PA on a Tuesday.
