    Good pizza like that is a reason for living. My girlfriend and I make some pretty killer pies but we just don't have the proper oven yet. Thanks for posting!

    Shakespears Pizza in Columbia, MO is the best pizza that's ever graced my tastebuds.

    Let's not forget another topic ripe for discussion and sure to get a lot of opinions - SF Burritos.

    Video made me hungry. But did anyone else cringe every time the narrator said "the pizza scene?"

    Bought some wheels

    Yummy! Yes please. I'll be in Frisco (hehe) in a week and will try and track some of these pies down and report back.

    So happy to see a link to food jammers - Nobu is a pal from a former life in Halifax and I couldn't be more psyched that their show is doing well.

    I miss little star pizza at least a couple times a week now that I no longer live in SF. Le sigh.

    Hmmmm. I'm feeling that. Same here, I've been making pizzas to beat the band using an charcoal grill and a large high fire stone normally used in my oven..it lives there. Simple method, get the coals ready and spread them out. Put the stone on to heat for 10 mins. with the lid closed. When water will sizzle on the webbers lid the "oven" is ready. So far I'm batting 500 and losing interest in building an $3,000 outdoor pizza oven real fast ;) The "trick" ,if there is one, is to lift the webber top only enough to toss the pie in thus trapping heat.

    Yep on heat retention. Any idea how hot your rig runs? I've been thinking about the pizza oven thing for like a decade but always resort to the 550F oven. Works pretty well with tipo 00 or pastry flour, nice crunch. The stone is great but requires too much energy to heat up. I'm throwing my cold dough into one of these, then the whole thing into the oven: Carbone Plus Round "lyonnaise" frypan - Heavy quality steel
    Comes out nice and even.
    Belgian or French steel, no BS, lasts forever. Je l'aime.

    Two batches of spontaneously-leavened dough now with the bubble-trapping and stretching from the vid. We'll see.

    PS watched the vid for the 5th time, noticed I sat where the film maker did @ Delfina.

    The best pizza in SF is the worst pizza I've ever had. NB: This experience, and my opinion, dates back to the early '90s. I haven't bothered with SF pizza since that horrific experience.
    GO!

    drift....Anyone want to pass along some recipes for bread and/or pizza crust that can be done on a stone in the BBQ. My grill gets super hot and I'd like to give this a go sometime.

    Not drift, relevant - working on this right now.

    4 weeks now literally every night pizza...

    Good yeast, like Dr. Oetker. Cheap and you don't have to proof it.
    salt
    maybe half pastry flour, half all purpose
    olive oil or not
    milk - I use 1%. Haven't tried 2%, anything more texture gets weird.
    sugar - not necessary but use if you like

    combine in bowl dry ingredients, add warm milk/evoo
    knead on table
    cover, let rise

    then do the foldy bits of the second guy in the vid; adds air
    let sit, roll out

    it's gonna tear if you do a like in vid if you haven't kneaded enough, rolling pin ok but little tapered on to not squash edges.
    leave it rough
    dress w/whatever*
    fire the sucka

    brush garlic oil**

    eat with alcohol.

    *whatever - I do Margherita-based stuff a lot

    tomatoes, canned, good ones. TJs are ok, the ones with basil.
    cut in slivers, take side of knife, smash and smear.
    put in pan w/evo & water, cook to desired acidity, let cool - important

    mozza

    basil from your plant, because you have one

    sea salt, little bit

    mess around w/order; mozza on bottom tastes dif than the other way



    **garlic oil

    little clove, smash w/side of knife
    add evoo
    brush on or drizzle a la table


    I need a super hot grill

    The game has changed. There are a kajillion really good places now.
    SF is a destination just for eating & riding.

    that sounds totally easy. wife is a better baker than I am, she will know how to mess with the dough. Mozz will go on top. let it brown off a little bit in the hot. New twist for the next bbq.

    try doing an oil infusion. put your ingredient(s) in the olive oil. heat the oil until just about cracking a boil, let cool. heat extracts flavors from the ingredients. this also works as an effective marinade for tuna steaks (or other lean fish if you cant get good tuna)

    dunno - havent tried it on pizza yet. but probably garlic or a garlic/oreg/basil combo. just an easy way to do something that passes as fancy cooking, but really takes no skill.
