Default 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.

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.
