It's been a while since we've made pizza, and with the cooler weather, seemed like a good time to fire up the FrankenWeber. (if you haven't seen my posts on this pizza cooker, there's a link to the build in my signature)

While I rarely do pizzas with more than two toppings, I decided to combine pepperoni, mushrooms, basil, and tomato, but went light on the toppings so the pie wasn't too weight with toppings.

After hand stretching the dough, I dusted the peel generously with semolina flour, then put the dough on the peel:

Then sauced, added cheese, and topped the pizza:

When the stone reached 650, I put the pizza on, and it took about 5 minutes to cook. after I pulled it out of the cooker, I added fresh basil:

We sliced it up, and dug in!

Pizza tasted great! Perfect meal for a chilly fall night.

Thanks, Gore!

And to think about 3 years ago when I first joined here I'd look at RTD's pizzas with awe and think to myself "I'll never make anything anywhere near that good". Glad I hung in there...

That is my kind of pizza. Simple, with just a few ingredients. I love mushrooms. Have you tried that with fresh mozzarella? That's my one traditional item that I really love. Fresh mozzarella is my cryptonite. I love it.

Great looking pizza. I'd hit that! :thumb:
