Default Re: 1. Worldwide Pizza Party: report of the Swiss Chapter

The pizza curver is pretty steep itself. I went out on Sunday, fired up the oven, nice and hot, and completely toasted the first pizza I put in. I mean it was black all the way around. Way way too hot! I was working without my laser thermometer and thought I was going to have no problems. The pizza went straight to the garbage.

Cool. Not bumping into someone from twenty miles away and "disappeared" are worlds apart.

They have the camera!

Mystery solved.

Scott, Scott, Scott.......Where is your sense of adventure? I can understand Acoma's reluctance to cross the Sierras, but you only had to get on 80 and cross the river! No chains required. Shame on ya! And you missed a doosy.
Could have used your help too. Biggest problem seemed to be people getting their pizza to slide off of their peel. Out by the oven (my semi-station), I saw many toppings slide into the hot oven while the skin stayed firmly attatched.

Next time it is "rain or shine." Only the oven is outside.

Funny for two reasons
#1.
The first time I fired up my oven, I watched my pizza like a hawk. I turned it after 40 seconds and it looked perfect 50 seconds after that. Perfect! But I wanted to demonstrate to my family the technique of holding it up to the roof of the oven to finish browning and what not. Eight seconds later I was blowing it out like a marshmellow.

#2.
I ate it anyway.

Dusty,
Funny, that technique is what killed mine too. The oven was blazin'. I didn't even check the temp, but it was way hotter than previously. I burned the next two as well, though not as bad.

Sounds like you should have made smore's with yours!

Mystery solved.

Communications here depend on mobile phones to a great extent. The Turkish government, to protect tax revenue have decreed that foreigners must register max 1 phone per person if it is an import. Almost every Turk in the tourist resorts had a state of the art phone from abroad due to the system of contract phones (in the UK anyway) being replaced on a regular basis. Seems Derek brought in a new dual sim phone and thought it would not be turned off because it also used his UK sim card. Wrong............The imei no. was captured and blocked. Result a $1,000/500 paperweight. He is now using one of my Turkish $70/35 *****s, that I bought for family and friends to use, until he can get his registered...........

Still no camera...............
