You know, when I sat and watched Luis Aguilar of Pizzetteria Brunetti make me an amazing calzone last month, I noted how he cut a couple slits in the top. So why in the hell did I ignore my better judgment and not do the same last night? Heck, I even notched the edges of my calzone with the tines of a fork, just as I saw Mr. Aguilar do.
Garrrrgh! I had one extra dough portion left over from Pizza Night, and I was so looking forward to having a homemade calzone for lunch today. Instead, I got this...
What's going on here, if you can't tell — from bottom to top:
- Pizza stone
- Un-slit calzone top puffed up under heat of oven into ...
- ... rack above, which holds FibraMent stone for extra heat
I knew I shoulda sliced a notch in the top! Always go with your gut, Kubs, always go with your gut.
Help Me Name My ... Column*
On another note ... I need a clever name for my cooking-pizza-at-home column. See, I'm supposed to be comin' atcha once a month on Fridays.** I'll just be blabbing about what I've been up to in my pizza kitchen lately. Obviously it's not a "Pizza Lab," as that's already taken, and I'm doing sort of goofy, whatever experiments.
Any ideas? Suggestions? I thank you kindly in advance.
* As opposed to help me name my blog ;)
