      Davy, you have inspired me to at least try to make a pizza, dough and all. Yours look great and  Saturday around your house would be something to look foward to. Thanks for the posts.

          How should I kneed my pizza dough?

          I have read 2-3 minutes and 10-15 minutes.  Any advise I appreciate.   Thanks.

            Last night I was really prepared to make two pizzas but invitees bailed out on me. So I saved my second dough ball for tonight's dinner. This time I decided to make an "official" Margherita pizza. I say official because the ingredients were strictly to recipe but maybe not all that authentic. My base sauce was a cup of chopped cherry tomatoes, 3 garlic cloves, 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and a dash of salt and ground pepper. The cheese was 8 oz. of 100% mozzarella and it was topped with fresh basil after it came out of the oven. This one was baked on a stone. Simple but perfecto!

              Bump to an epic pizza thread I was looking for.  This one is too good to allow lost to time. (And I want it near the top so I can refer to it again this afternoon.)

                Agreed.  I had forgotten about this one, too.

                  Maybe I should start making pizzas again.

                  Had a little bump in the diet road and kind of slacked off on rich eating.

                      I've posted too much. My Photobucket bandwidth has been exceeded and photos will not come back until May 15 unless I upgrade to Photobucket Pro. With every new photo post I made I grew closer to the 10 GB per month limit. Finally I exceeded it.

                          Oh well why not? I must tell you I've walked a total of 19 miles these last three days just so I can eat this pizza. I foraged 21 morel mushrooms out of my woods last week and decided I would make this Morel mushroom, Italian hot sausage, mozzarella cheese, black olive and onion pizza with whole wheat crust this Saturday night. I only sliced up two morels. In afterthought maybe I should have used more but those two had a local retail value of $8. You won't find a pizza like this in any restaurant.

                              Gorgeous pizza. The morels I've had have been rather subtle and delicate in flavor, so were these fairly strong? How did they stand up against the other flavors?

                                    You're right. That's why I mentioned maybe I should have loaded up with more. Morels are very subtle and delicate with an exquisite taste different than most mushrooms. The store bought, commercially cultivated button mushrooms have a much stronger taste in a pizza but are not as tasty. I've got more morels. I think the next time I will try them with a basic Margherita ingredient pizza with fresh basil.

                                      Another Saturday, another pizza. Stay tuned. This will be a pizza unlike any you can ever hope to find in a restaurant. Hint. More morels, grilled pork tenderloin and a sauce like no other.

                                            I make my dough with a bread maker but with distilled water and honey instead of sugar, and kosher salt

                                              This pizza turned out not much to look at but it was a major departure from a traditional pizza. The dough was a combination of all-purpose flour and 1/4 of whole wheat flour for starters. I hand mix and knead my dough and use nothing but flour, sea salt, yeast and water.

                                              On the barbecue grill I grilled 9 ounces of sliced up pork tenderloin and then afterward cubed it. I then used about $16 retail's worth of morel mushrooms (4) I harvested from my woods and a scant 6 ounces of mozzarella cheese.

                                              The difference was the sauce. I mixed together about 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise with an equal amount of a homemade hot and spicy BBQ sauce that I bought at the Excelsior, MN farmer's market. To me it tasted great. All the ingredients were simple and subtle to bland but the sauce pulled it all together and pretty much dominated the pizza except when you directly ate a piece of mushroom or tenderloin.

                                              The sauce idea came from the restaurant, Dawson's on Main in Speedway, IN they called their Signature Sauce they served with breaded pork tenderloin sandwiches-a taste that stuck with me. In quizzing them and a little experimentation I've deduced it is about an equal combination of mayonnaise and BBQ sauce. It goes well with pork…thus the pizza.

                                                        I might as well get back in the groove. This past year my efforts had slowed down considerably. In October we flew to Rome, Italy and took a cruise that eventually got us to Naples. In Italy I got to sample a half dozen pizzas in Rome and Naples. I think I learned a lot. Simplicity and quality in ingredients makes all the difference. Since Naples I've been on a pursuit of wood-fired Margherita pizzas and have sampled quite a few in restaurants.
                                                         
                                                        I'm still missing a brick wood-fired oven in order to match the best. However, I did find a source in Minneapolis for Italian tipo 00 flour and started buying San Marzano tomatoes grown at the base of Mt. Vesuvius. This pizza crust is 00 flour, sea salt, yeast and water only at 65% hydration hand kneaded. The sauce is nothing but San Marzano tomatoes blendered lightly. I used about 7 oz. of whole milk mozzarella cheese diced in chunks. Fresh pepperoni. Seasoned the pizza with oregano, basil and chopped fresh garlic. Also spritzed a little extra virgin olive oil on top of the dough. Baked at 550F for 8 minutes on a pre-heated stone.
