Camembert pizza - French Style

This pizza got way too much of good French cheese on it, but taste excellent so! We had Japanese pizza party: with sea food and sushimi on top. I did few D.O.C. To start pizza party , than it went downhill:
hot marinated baby squids and red caviar with crab meat and Armenian Coniac ;-) it was too good and we all eat like pigs only to go back in the house and face 5 different cakes for tea. Diet now;-)

Hail destroyed my party table

Well, bad weather took it's toll again... Last time it was QuickShade
and snow, this time it was heavy hail and my glass garden table. It is
messy, but not bad: I did not like this one and will be happy to get a
better one.;-)

Bread in pizza oven

This time I took all fire and coil out from the oven and wiped floor
with wet t-shirt(Marios trick) . We used last, unfinished dough batch
that intended for pizza : it was not realy enough time.

I put both lougphs in and sprinkled all inside with water using
spraer. I did it again after 5 minutes. Closing oven door compleatly .
I rotated after about 20 minutes( back of oven was hotter) and after
another 20 took bread out. It took like 40 minutes and bread was just
a but burned on side that faced hot oven back. Bread turns out be
very nice and with a very good fragrance. That remained in plastic bag
as we eat it up during week.

We should try again, but with proper dough : I think it will be even
more delitioce!

I have to get more of red caviar: goes well with fresh oven bread.

Botom line: baking bread in pizza oven is possble and it is worth it:
smell and crast simply deliciose!

Toward DOC Certification

You probably read about DOC pizza on this blog already.

DOC pizza

Now it is time to get certified!

How to Certify D.O.C.

There are a list of things on this web site, but most critical for me now is to get Italian flour and tomatoes, mozzarella I use is Italian buffala, but the rest is Costco brand ( that is very good so)

Well, but this is my goal for this summer! Get certified!

Pagliaggi bought out my backyard pizzeria!!!

They are Italians, you know, they made me offer I cannot refuse:-)

Place will be reserved for privet pizza parties of elite society: high ranked managers of local software companies, that we have quite a few here in Redmond.

So this is a good news: I got extra cash for backyard pimp up and renovation.

Bad news is they ordered me to develop Oreo Cookie pizza to compete with Dominos Pizza new offering> :-(

OK... OK...OK.. It WAS a April 1st joke, all right ? :-)
