  • Pizza gathering

    I tested out the oven last week with 3 pizzas from the Caputo. Truly is great dough for the oven. Took 90 seconds, then I elevated the pizza for about 5+ seconds towards the dome. Pizza was wolfed down. I used basil, homemade sauce, mushrooms, Provolone cheese, pepperoni, onion and mint. Mmmmmmmm, was good. Now we are attempting 12 pizzas for friends and family tomorrow.

    sounds good Robert.

    How do you make your homemade sauce?

      Dave, my wife makes it. I will ask her if she will share it. Honestly, I am not playing games with anyone when I say her sauce is the best I have had over any restaurant or upon any place visited. She makes it for spaghetti (oh it is good!), but this time went with less ingredience so that the sauce doesn't overpower the flavor of toppings. I will ask her to input the recipe or else- no pizza for her

            Interesting Robert, the elevation technique. Was that to just toast the top?

              Xabia, I don't remember if it was RT, but an earlier thread about pizza dough and methods that I read spoke about it. It definately adds benefit, and yes, it toast the top perfectly. I go half up in height though.

                This is a technique I've seen Pizzaiolo's do in restaurants. Seems to get the cheese nice and golden/caramelized.

                    Re: Pizza gathering

                    For our party, we started the first real party with 15 people. Went smooth and perfect. It was great to see people that came thinking it would be a long process for pizza heating, but was not. They started getting into making them but all were quite happy having me do the oven. Next time I will get them to be the veterans doing the oven and dough, to teach the new guests for the next one. This was so much fun.

                      How many pies did you make, probably around 20? How other did you heat the floor bake up. We did 5 pies last night and I probably would have reheated the floor after that if we were gong to make more.
                      Did a chicken today - love that retained heat.

                        RC, we made 11 pizzas, with 2 going home with guests. The day before I just 4x'd the caputo PDF measurements. My kitchenAid was brimming with dough
                        http://www.fornobravo.com/PDF/Using-caputo-tipo00.pdf

                        Everyone made and decorated their own. As for heat keeping up, we got the heat saturated to low 900's, then we cleared out much of the coal except some to maintain heat, and occasionally would put a log or two in as needed. I liked keeping the pizzas in certain areas (learning) so after 3 I would shift sides, move coals and wood. My goal was to maintain that 900 temp, and it worked great. As for today, my wife is picking up two chickens now and it should take 3 hours foiled. I want to get some Terracotta cookware. I want to cook other great foods in them for the oven.

                            Robert,
                            Everything looks great. How long did it take to get the oven saturated at 900 degrees? Also where are you getting that reading? When you say saturated , how deep into the brick are you getting the 900 reading?
                            Thanks,
                            jim

                              Robert - Fantastic job. I guess busting your butt in crazy temps is paying off. Good looking pizza. When I get to the point of fire - I know who to call.
