Singolo Bufala con Erbe a la TXCraig1
Singolo Bufala con Erbe a la TXCraig1
"Some time ago, John Della Vecchia sent in his doppia bufala con erbe to MPM. My take on his masterpiece of simplicity has only mozzarella di bufala along with chives, a drizzle of evoo, and a pinch of sea salt. SD crust, 925F/55 seconds. Even with only one bufala this is an incredible pie." TXCraig1

Corni's Shiitake and Garlic Pizza
Corni's Shiitake and Garlic Pizza
"Shiitake mushroom and garlic pizza topped with fresh buffalo mozzarella. Gave the dough a 5 day cold rise this time, great texture and flavor. The sauce is made from uncooked home-grown San Marzanos (had a bumper crop this summer and still have a couple of bags in the freezer). Baked as usual at max on an Emile Henry pizza stone. (Though a baking steel is definitely on my wish list!)" Corni
Steel Margherita from Derricktung

"Caputo 00 flour with about a 60% hydration on Baking Steel heated with convection oven and broiler method.  This was 8.5 oz of dough, so I need to work on stretching the dough out more, as the cornicione just seems to be way too big and uneven here. Basic Margherita, fresh basil, fresh mozz, and sauce." derricktung

Spinach and Garlic by Kaz
Spinach and Garlic by Kaz
"This is the NY dough recipe, my own sauce recipe (with sucanat instead of sugar) that I've been perfecting (at least to me). 4 cheese, fresh spinach and crushed garlic. This pizza night, my daughter said, "Sorry, Sally's, but dad's pizza is better!" I don't think it is that good, but I appreciate the compliment :)" — Kaz
Twleslie Pepperoni Pie
Twleslie Pepperoni Pie
Simple stuff here—just my 12-year old's favorite pepperoni and mozzarella in some quick tomato sauce. The crust was the real killer, though. I used a sourdough starter and followed Peter Reinhart's recipe out of Artisan Bread Every Day, but with 00 flour and a half tablespoon per crust of vital wheat gluten. The dough took a lot more hydration, held up much better to shaping, and produced my best cornicione yet. Not that the boy noticed, of course, but I was pretty proud of it! twleslie
