    I made dough yesterday. This was hand stretched to 14 inches and cooked at 500 for 8 minutes.

    Toppings were roasted poblano peppers, jalapeno, herbed goat cheese, mozzarella, chedder, onion and fresh basil. The sauce I made from Hunts tomato sauce, garlic, sugar, salt/pepper, dried oregano and dried onions.

    Very tastey.

    Oh yea. Made the flour by grinding the wheat. I did a room temp ferment w/ half the flour and all the water, with a tiny bit of yeast. Next day, I added the rest of the flour, sugar, salt and a bit more yeast. kneeded by hand and shaped the dough balls.
    Another six hours of room temp rise. I made the mozzerella cheese while waiting for them to rise. Pizza stone in oven and cranked to high for an hour, which is only 500 degrees.

    I paired it with a homebrewed pale ale.





    Topped with the homemade cheese, a tiny amount of chedder, onion, jalapeno and fresh basil.

    PNJ,

    How'd you make the mozz. I got inspired by your post and tried making some this past weekend using a recipe i found on instructables.com, but the end result didnt look anything like mozz.

    I made Lahmacun with pomegranate, spinach and feta. These Turkish pizzas are beautiful; with the green of the spinach and the pink of the pomegranates, they look like fading roses.

    500 degrees?
    Might as well be in a freezer.
    And no stone?
    But one of those screen things?

    wtf, do I know you? :)

    I have a stone. it's probably older than you are. I don't use it often because I found that at 500 degrees, it's not really hot enough to do anything but waste energy from heating up the oven for an hour+

    Oven only goes to 500. I'm not breaking the oven/auto clean to go higher.

    Did you only read the first post?

    You didn't see the picture with the pizza that I ground the wheat, made the dough and made the cheese? AND made the beer?

    I learned a long time ago that the only thing that matters is if I and my family like what I make...

    I bake all the sandwich rolls and sandwich breads in our oven on Stainless die cut trays (screens). Those pies look awesome....

    Lost track of time and burned both pies I made tonight. Dropped the other ball of dough on the floor while attempting to make replacements. $10 in cheese alone. $5 in meat and deli. Bad Tomato season begins today at the Public Market apparently. I mean they had nothing there today.

    I am from Buffalo New York. One of the most toxic urban environments on the planet. If I am going to die of something it will be my exposure to that, not pepperoni which I consume so infrequently as to be very little concern to me. I however have curtailed my consumption of Cocoa Puffs. I think they are really bad for you. Just a hunch I have.

    Though many levels below PNJ's rad creations, I will chime in, because I believe this thread is almost as good of an idea as the "post a picture of your dog" thread.
    Tonight we will make bread machine dough, with safeway (generic) brand sauce. However, I am figuring out how to make it not so watery (a major failure of most home-made pizzas I've had).
    1. I pre-cook the dough and the sauce for a few minutes to burn off the moisture.
    2.Then we end it with a few minutes of "broil", and make sure to use PLENTY of cheese.
    Those are my totally amateur tips, but we've been having fun improving. Maybe one day will have a pizza stove in the back yard and I'll be a total snob about it like rideit. One can dream. Pictures to follow.

    Sausage, Onion, and Mushroom. Just a shmootz of sauce and tonnes of Olive oil and Garlic. Cooked the Mushrooms in Butter and wine. Square pie with Locatelli instead of Mozz.. Wished I had some sweet peppers on it or used less spicy more finely ground sausage.

    Take your raw thin sliced onions and soak them in very sugary water before you top your pie with them.

    I heat my stone for 45 minutes before cooking...really helps get it to (and stay at) 550 degrees.

    Thats what I did, the pizzas then took about 6 minutes to finish.
    We did veggie/shrimp pizzas with a home made basil tomato sauce and plenty of cheese and Rucola and I ate way too much cause i was drunk.

    Generally the pies I make for myself are Pepperoni free. I however use lots of cheap Olive Oil. I have a good source for uncured Guanciale. But if I make pies for others I have to cater to their requests. Usually when folks try Guanciale. They agree it is delicious. I try to use the best ingredients I can find. To most folks with kids pizza is cheese and pepperoni. Not much I can do about that. My favorite pie right now is meatball, onions, and mushroom. I make the meatballs. I make them into 5 inch rolls and slice them on the bias after baking them. Cento tomatoes too. I now make all my pies in a blue steel pan. I like the consistency over stones and dirty ovens. I had a stone blow up on me and it sucked. I appreciate your concern...

    Jamaican drunken grilled shrimp and sweet potato (Baked sweet potatoes scooped out and plopped on the pie) pizza. With Jerk salsa sauce instead of sauce. Basically Jerk sauce with chopped plum tomatoes. Gouda and Muenster cheese instead of Mozz.

    Seriously. That place is like a sausage wonderland.
