I tried to embed the video, but if it is not done automatically by Mac, I have no clue...

Nice! What kind of side loading oven is that? Good Job. You could use a spadle. Never get tired of seeing these.

The second cheese is just a sprinkle of parmesan...not traditional, but it was the way I was trained. We don't use anything but crushed tomatoes so I like a bit of saltiness on top.

I really don't like the side loading ovens - but mostly I don't like the rotating deck. But we can't do anything about it now...the pizza is coming out pretty good.

NICE article. Kinda surprised no mention of Camaldoli or Ischia.
Very impressive business model.
I am going to bed jealous and will probably wake up the same way.

I have yet to have success with either Calmadoli or Ischia. I have been working with them at home and made a couple of batches for the pizzeria, but I can't get them right. They are not contaminated, but I just don't think I have them fully activated.

We are making the dough using fresh cake yeast. I am totally jealous of the people that can make the starters work.
