Tonights Pizza
Fired up my portable pizza oven in the driveway tonight and made the neighbors jealous :-)
Here is the link for some pics if you want to see. I made a set called Pizza.

Was that a portable in the driveway?

Re: Tonights Pizza
That is some of the best looking pizza I have seen on the site. Can you post the dough recipe, processes and floor temps. I am still experimenting with flours, starters, temps to try and arrive at the place you seem to be.

Re: Tonights Pizza
thanks Jim for the kind words.
As far as the dough recipe I am currently using Reinharts Neo-Neoploitan recipe from his American Pie book. My deck temps run about 850 or so when cooking. I am using Guistos Peak Performer flour and have had good luck with that for both my dough and breads.

Re: Tonights Pizza
Wow...those are some great looking pizzas! Drooled all over my keyboard.

Re: Tonights Pizza
One more question. What are you using on your peel (semolina, rice flour, corn meal . . .)?

Re: Tonights Pizza
Jim - I use wooden peels to load pizzas in the oven, I have used both semolina and rice flour over the past and like both, but have been using rice flour a bit more lately.

Re: Tonights Pizza
I am intrigued by the oven on a trailor (thinking about doing the same over here). What prevents the whole thing cracking when the trailor goes over bumps? or do you just drive very slowly!
