That looks awesome Rich, bet it felt good to get the fires going. Soon you'll be turning out awesome pizza! If you get a chance you should think about doing a blog of your build and the wonderful food you'll soon be producing from your oven, I've loved doing mine. Cheers Marcus P.S do you have an idea what your first pizza will be yet? Have a look at my overnight ferment recipe, makes for a delicious base
Photobucket seems to be having some issues at the moment so I'll post a couple if pics later on.
Fat Bob... Yeah it could of been a bit higher but it's too late now!! :lol: I live in bare feet throughout most of the summer... but your right, I will have to make sure I have some foot protection... I'll chuck my jandels on next time!! :wink:
Calaf... She does look a bit full figured!! (even fuller with her render coat on) I can hopefully do a couple more curing fires before I give her a full stoke... Can't wait!!!
I've dabbled a bit in Pizza dough recipe's and this is one of my favourites.....
500 gms strong white flour 300 gms luke warm water 1 tsp salt 2 tsps honey 2 tbles olive oil 1 sachet dried yeast
Method.....In a large bowl add all the dry ingredients. Make a well in the centre, then add half the water, honey and oil. Gradually add the rest of the water. The dough should end up slightly sticky.....knead for 10/15 mins then leave prove for 1 hour. Divide into pizza balls and either refrigerate until needed or use straight away.
This method can be used in a short time from making...to baking, but you may find the dough is a little springy. You will find that Marcus's method is a lot easier to handle.
