Happy National Pizza Day!
« on: February 09, 2017, 07:42:49 PM »
NATIONAL PIZZA DAY!!!  Got a pizza rack and more peels so I can spread a bunch of pizzas then have them ready to fire off one after another.  This was the first time I let everyone make their own pizza and it was a big success.  Also my first pizza with eggs.  Eggs were a bit over cooked.  They looked runny still but weren't. 

I missed some pics but think I got most of the 6 pizzas at one point. 

Time to sit down, enjoy a beer with my feet up and get caught up on everyone else's posts tonight. 

Happy National [emoji487] Day!!!!

Awesome cook!  Where did you get that rack for your peels?  What a great space saver.

Your passion for the pizza is contagious Mike! Your new peel/box rack is pretty slick too! Just curious, how do you store your dough, while it is proofing?

You're pizzas always look awesome. Where did you get those boxes? Those look pretty damn sweet.

I just let it rise for about an hour and a half in glass bowls in the oven, covered in plastic wrap.

I got them on Amazon.  Pack of 50.  I don't remember what they cost.  Will probably price them at the place I got my rack if I need more.

Thanks Mike, that's just about the same as I do. I'm trying to justify the need for a proofing box, to save space when doing more than a few dough balls.

Looks like a great pizza cook, Mike! Been a while since posting any here but you might appreciate this. We were out of town just yesterday in a very large city in the south. Found ourselves at an multiple award winning and highly acclaimed place known for its authentic Neapolitan wood fired oven pizza. Well, ordered the Margherita, and was sorely disappointed. Not quite enough mozzarella for my taste, but much more importantly, outside crust charred before the bottom crust got crisp. I guess they just had a newbie that was a bit of a pyro...lol, but it just went to show that as you well know, cooking pizza is a lot more than just having the perfect setup, like having to have the baking steel on the KettlePizza, for instance. Anyhow, your pies look great! Picked up some Boar's Head pepperoni the other day and will get rest of what we need to fire up the KettlePizza this week. Thanks for the inspiration and I'm glad you're still posting your pizza cooks with the KettlePizza. [emoji106][emoji106]

@kettlecook, if that pizzeria is on the west side of town near a major university in the ACC, I am surprised you had a poor eating experience.  Been there 3 times.....great every time.  It was once BYOB, which was even better, because that meant a limitless beer/wine selection.
I like my Kettles like my coffee....strong and black.
