Hmmm...Maybe if we print out a HUGE Wheebz head and hover it in the background of a picture of a pizza we make for you...

THP would be none-the-wiser. (Pssst... don't tell El Jefe)

We'd love to see pics anyways!

Someday we'll all show up in the everglades somewhere at a campsite and cook some outdoors drunken shenanagry.

...Unless you want to start driving. Sum and I both have nice kitchens, but we're cooking at my place tomorrow.

Finished! It came out like crap. Nothing like I envisioned in my head. This is why I rarely cook sober ;) I really don't want to waste a half hour typing up the ingredient list, etc, but just so everyone else can have a laugh at my expense I'll do it.

I love making pizza. Been making it for 16 years as a hobby. Started off with pita pizzas, then learning to make from scratch in my oven, the next evolution was using the 2Stone oven, one day in the far future i'll get a brick oven :)

So to get started, i'll be making 3 pizzas.
  • Neopolitan Pizza using Brain Strain Pizza Sauce
  • Neopolitan Pizza with my own home grown pickled bhut jolokia
  • Plain Neopolitan Pizza for the wife :)
Here are my ingredients for the dough (65% hydration)
  • 500 gm of flour (250 using caputo tipo 00 flour from italy, 250 king arthur flour)
  • 325 gm of water
  • 1 gm of SAF active dry yeast
  • 10 gm of italian sea salt
For the brain strain pizza sauce:
  • Strained Prego Tomato, Onion, Garlic sphaghetti sauce (i know you are probably whuuuuu, but its really tasty)
  • Dried brain strain flakes from pods i got from Cappy
Here is the overall pic of ingredients:

The dough all incorporated and resting

Weighing the dough balls, each will be 270 grams

The dough balls, 3 of them all smooth and rounded

Dough Balls are now ready to proof, i'll be making same day pizza, i usually put these in the fridge for a 2-3 day cold proof, but i'm not patient :)

Tour De 'Za
So when I heard we were doing a pizza throwdown I thought I'd make a massive pizza shaped like the US and make a bunch of small pies highlighting regional cuisines. It sounded good, but in practice I really butchered it. Definitely an abomination of a pizza ;) Art was my worst class by far in school so I probably should have thought twice about trying to pull this off. Here's what I did...

I made the dough last night in 2 batches. Between the 2 there was roughly 5.5 C Water, 12 C Flour (8 C Bread, 2C Semolina, 2C Oat), 2 TBSP yeast, 3-4 Tbsp olive oil, 4 tbsp brown sugar, 2 tbsp salt. I let it rise at room temp for about 20 hours before I used it today.
I made 2 garlic sheet pizzas that were topped with a pulsed mixture of jalapeño butter I made a couple months ago, 3 1/2 heads of roasted garlic, milk, and black pepper. After I put some of that mixture on the pizzas I put about 2 or 3 cloves of fresh garlic on each pie. They got cooked on convect at 550 for about 10 minutes each.

Then I made 7 small pies:
1) Cuban Pork - Mustard for the sauce, followed by sliced ham, followed by roasted pork I cut from the should I slow cooked earlier today, topped with thin sliced aged swiss cheese.
2)BBQ Pork- Chocolate Hab BBQ Sauce that I made up this morning (chocolate habanero, minced onion, minced garlic, tomato puree, ketchup, soy sauce, worcestershire sauce, sriracha, molasses, malt vinegar, black pepper, and brown sugar[shoot me a message if you want the measurements, it came out real good] ), pulled pork that I cooked for 8 hours at 235, white sharp cheddar cheese, and topped with shaved red onions.
3)Philly Cheese Steak - Thin sliced steak sauteed with Italian spices, roasted onions and peppers, and cheddar jack cheese.
4) 7 Cheese Pizza - I used some pasta sauce I made and canned this summer and topped it with Heluva Good shredded 4 cheese (Mozzarella, Provolone, Parmesan, and Romano) and added some Pepper Jack, White Cheddar, and Aged Swiss.
5) Pierogi Pie- Garlic Mashed Potatoes (red skin potato boiled and mashed with olive oil, milk, roasted garlic, salt and pepper) and white cheddar cheese topped with thin sliced scallions.
6) Spinach and Artichoke- For sauce I made creamed spinach (milk, whipped cream cheese, minced onions, ground pepper, pecorino romano cheese, nutmeg and spinach) which I cooked down and pulsed with a hand blender. I topped the pizza with pepper jack cheese and marinated artichoke hearts.
7)Southwest Chicken Ranch - Roasted chicken, roasted red onions, green peppers and corn, topped with pepper jack cheese. I drizzled it with ranch dressing and added some finely diced cayenne peppers.

These pizzas got about 8 minutes in the oven at 550.

If I had to do this over again and someone forced my hand to do the same type of thing, I would probably have used a red sauce and mozz for the whole pizza. I thought the individual pizzas would stand out more the way I did it, but it just makes the rest of the pizza look vacant.
