Default First Pies Out Of The Pizza Oven

First pies are out of my new Pizzeria Pronto Oven. Was a fun cook and the pizzas came out pretty good.

I found a 72 hour fermented pizza dough recipe on Contains flour, water, salt and yeast.

The first 24 hours it sits on the counter in a covered container.

The second and third days are spent in the refrigerator in individual portions.

This is the third day after sitting on the counter for a few hours before cooking.

The sauce I made was really simple. Open a can San Marzano tomatoes and pulse with a immersion blender along with salt and fresh basil. It's not even cooked. I will not be messing with this recipe. It was perfect.

The oven got to temp in about 10 minutes.

Fairly basic toppings for my first attempt. The only whole milk low moisture mozzarella I could find was at Walmart. Will try to find something else at Costco or Trader Joes.

The pies

I had a little water pooling on a couple of them. Not sure what caused that. It might have been from the black olives, I noticed it wasn't as bad with pies without them. I also need to work out an exact timing for rotating them during the cook to even the crust out.

I liked the crust but others thought it was a little strong. I might try something else next time.

Nicely done! I'm with Mike... I could hit a slice or two of those right now.

Appreciate the words on the dough. Looks like great bubbles in the crust.

If you want to step up your pizza sauce game, buy Escalon 6-in-1 ground tomatoes with added extra heavy puree.

Those look really good. The olive one looked like the most pooling, but any raw vegetable is going to give off a ton of water when cooked. You can do a quick roast or saute of any raw veg, or the easiest is to just throw them in the microwave for 45 seconds or so. It just gets rid of some of the excess water. Cheese can also be a major factor if your pie is a little soupy.

What did your family mean by strong in the dough? Just yeasty?

Positively Neapolitan.

Watching intently - I will finally get some OO Caputo Chef's flour today.

By the way, how hot does that oven get?
