Re: What Pizza did you make or eat today?

I was wondering if anyone here knows an on-line place to buy pizza flour made from wheat grown in Europe? A neighbor has recently, (last year or three) developed GI issues with flour. He found that when he was in Italy he could eat pizza there, just not days in a row. Here, any flour seems to produce the GI issues, even organic.

So, I thought I'd try to find some pizza flour from Italy and make him a pizza, see if it doesn't bother him.

Thanks for any help provided.

Thank you. He has tried Einkorn, which was a bit better, but still caused him issues. The wheat things (pizza) he ate in Italy didn't have noticiable effects till he ate it several days in a row, which is why I'm trying to find a good source for pizza flour from Italy.

From Italy, look into Antimo Caputo Italian "00" Pizza flour, Xexo.

I have never placed an order with these guys, though.

More pan pizza! This one was made in a 12" Lloyd non stick pan (it kinda looks like anodized aluminum). The jury is still out on which pizza is better, cast iron version or this. But its sure easier to handle this pan than a 8lb cast iron. Baking time was shorter with this pan also due to the fact it heats up faster than the cast iron.

Had some great pizza in the tasting room at 28 Mile, a local distillery in Highwood, IL. The menu describes it as "New Haven Style." I'm honestly not sure how accurate that description is but this pizza seemed more substantially made than a lot of the ubiquitous Tavern Style pizzas I've had around town . . .

Yeah, we were pretty eager to get into this. :lol: Something you don't see very often with pizza served in bars in Chicagoland is wedge-slices. No squares here, which is just fine with me. :P

Slice
Just a very nice specimen that kind of says "eat me." :roll:

Side Detail
As you can see, the crust was well-risen. Like a well-made bread, it was pleasantly chewy (a bit of tug), with flavor continuing throughout the chew. It was well-constructed, well-proportioned and baked perfectly, with nice char bubbles popping up every so often on the crown.

I'm certainly no pizza expert but I really enjoyed this take. In fact, I'd travel here -- at least a few miles -- just to eat their pizza. Definitely destination-worthy. It's interesting, tasty and clearly, a whole lot better than a lot of other pizzas in the area (Highwood is home to at least 4 other places that serve pizza).

Wow that looks great Ronnie! I started off as a NY thin crust guy but just love all kinds of pizza lover now. That pix made me run out and get pepperoni for my next one!

Wife and I just went for a walk at Openlands Lakeshore Preserve on Sunday. Right by there.
We would have gone to check it out on your rec. except that it was a little too early for dinner.
Fast fwd to today, decided to make some new haven style for the kiddos today. (I don't actually know if it's New Haven style, It's the style I grew up eating which was in CT near new haven.)
Also, sorry it's a bit Rustic. I was in a hurry.

Pizza one, pepperoni
Pizza 2 pepperoni on 1/3 and Mushroom & Cherry Tomato on the rest.

Dude, those pizzas look effing awesome! If you're apologizing for those, I can't even imagine the 'good' ones. :)

I only know what some Chicagoland places (e.g. Piece, 28 Mile, etc) refer to as New Haven and really have no idea if they're authentic representations or not.

Thanks man, they tasted good so that's what counts..
I don't make much pizza these days, but in my 20's I made a fair amount for work and so I know I could make them look nice and uniform, but with time/space/equipment limitations I just went rustic.

That's absolutely fantastic work.

Love the rectangle shape.

Thanks for starting my morning off right. :D
