My Pizza journey
« on: September 16, 2020, 01:01:24 PM »
Hi guys!
I have been making Pizzas for a few years now, started with no skills at all and never thought that this whole topic would bring so much joy into my life.

I started with the normal oven in our kitchen, first only with the sheet pan, than upgraded to a Pizza stone, than tried with my BBQ, than I finally bought the uuni 3 oven with pellets and this is where my quest for the best Neapolitan pizza I am able to create really began..

It was such a hassle with this oven and I was so happy to finally got my fingers here in austria to the gas adapter and since two years I really tried every week different fermentation techniques and such but in the end I was quite happy but never really satisfied. When I look and the Pizzas I adore so much also a lot in this forum they where just not right. I was so frustrated and I also had this thought in my mind that the oven will play a big role in the outcome because I was quite sure that my dough was somehow good and right.

So yesterday I finally received my long anticipated Roccbox and this is the first Margherita i made.. I am really happy with the result.

Hope u like it and it is OK when I post sometimes here to show some other Pizza creations I so love to make.hope I will get better and better..

70% hydration, handmade with Caputo cuoco, 24 h ferment 17/7

Cheers from Austria!
Robert

hey ! thank you for your nice comment ;)
yes of course i will continue my journey - now motivated than ever because of the oven !
it is really amazing
and i find the higher hydration really suits the absolute searing heat i have in the roccbox - otherwise i think the bottom of the pizza is really rapidly burned - altough i think the Saputo Stone most professional Pizzaovens have are better for lower highdration doughs .. or is this wrong ? whats your opinion on this friends ?

cheers from Innsbruck
cant wait for Pizza on friday  :angel: :drool: ;D

Innsbruck! I'm so jealous.

The mountains in Scotland are nothing in comparison.

but you have the most amazing landscape and of course whisky !! i have been collecting and enjoying whisky since over 10 years .. really a freak also in that regards ;)
whats your favorite in any region ?
i love all and tried over 2000 different whiskys (samples, luckily theres another forum too :D ) mostly single casks
but if i have to say if i have to choose one whisky from the standard range it has to be Highland Park 18 - it has everything i adore

cheers !

Tragically I'm not a big whisky drinker. But we did get my boss a nice highland park 18 once and I think a Talisker dark storm.

I was quite surprised at the Highland park and how smooth it was. Anything without too much of a strong pete flavour is OK for me. The ones I enjoy the most are normally at the end of a long drinking session so I generally don't remember what they were  :-D

what a coincidence with the Highland Park 18 :)
hahaha yes it could happen easily without paying attention too much

so than Glenmorangie Original should be exactly your taste - it was my very first dram ever and it never left my whisky shelf since than .. it is amazing and also good enough for real connaisseurs.
lets buy !

so back to topic haha
whats up with your pizzas ? what oven do you have ?

cheers

Oh cool I'll keep that one in mind.

Me I recently got an indoor electric counter-top oven (due to the weather here lol). Effeuno P134h gets up to 500c for proper neo style. I adopted this other guy's thread after having the same disastrous first attempt that he did! https://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=60993.0

I'm sure I've even seen 12/12 before so 14/10 doesnt sound out of the ordinary. good luck!

hi friends!

the Pizza today with my long approach in balls turned out really great .. the dough was light and easy to handle and it was a 50 seconds bake ...
was really tasty, fragrant and easy to chew.

63% with Caputo Cuoco 10 h bulk 14h balled at 20 C

cheers
