Those look really fantastic! And I love your kitchen, too, very cozy.

...one question: did he actually catch it when it came back down again?

I was impressed--Drew didn't drop a single piece of dough, and they all went flying like that! Thank goodness for 14 foot ceilings. He and his teenage friends got very bored during their late night shifts at Little Caesars and the skills are still there 20 years later, evidently. ;-)

Nikki,
How hot was the oven? How long did you keep pizzas in the oven?

Santa didn't bring an IR thermometer, so I'm not sure how hot it really was. But the whole dome went white this time and wood burst into flame as soon as we threw it in, and it was too hot to put your hand in, so I know it was way up there! I didn't time the pizzas, but they were fast. I was too worried about the procedure and figuring out the peels to time it, but on New Year's Eve I'll designate someone to time it and see how quickly they cook.

Santa did bring the basic peels/brush set, and some nice wooden pizza peels, just in time for the first use of the oven. Drew very carefully wrapped the two peels and the brush, keeping the paper completely snug to the shape of each tool, then hid them all in the storage closet. No mystery, but lots of patience and funny effort. I'm impressed he kept them hidden from me until Christmas morning.

Congratulations! They look really good. I particularly like the looks of the one with the spinach.

I still can't bring myself to fling a pizza in the air- I can't quite master Dave's technique of slapping it from hand to hand yet. My fingers keep going through ...

Nikki,
Do you have recipes for the dough (crust) or sauce?
