    I don't have a wood fire oven, but I have had good success with a cast iron in the oven as high as it will go (500-550) or in my Weber with HOT coals. Pre-heat the cast iron for 30-45 minutes before building the pizza so the skillet is nice and not. Makes for a nice crispy crust. Just throwing out there in case someone wants to try it themselves!

    Didn’t have any, kind of made these on a whim with what I had. But I loaded the bottom of the dough and the peel with flour and didn’t have any issues with the launch. Got a really good texture on the bottom too.

    I typically don't use the mozz ball that is stored in water or oil -- typically use a packaged ball.  Haven't tried to marinated ones but have heard of some others with success.
    That said, I believe the wood fired ovens typically cook a little cooler than the propane ones.  Typically mine's closer to 700 to 750 degrees and it's about a 5 to 6 minute cook.  I think the lower cooking temperature cuts back on the charring that can occur but it's not going to produce the crisp thin crusts you are getting -- but I actually a little thicker crust than you do anyone.  With a little thicker crust at the slightly lower temp, I'm looking to cet a crisp outside of the crust but a more air-y inside.

    Had a breakthrough tonight. Buffalo chicken pizzas (the only non-traditional pizza I’ll eat) using a no-yeast dough recipe with bread flour. Cut down on the baking powder (the substitute for yeast) resulting in a thin crust. A lot thinner than the picture shows, but everything went well from dough making to launch to the bake. Legitimately fantastic pizza.

    CRIMINAL charge call on Nova. Refs let the emotion of the game get to them on that one.

    As someone that roots against every other B1G team out of spite, I'm extremely grateful that Fran McCaffery hasn't ever really figured out how to pair a defense with his offense, because the man can coach some offense. Outside of his first two years at the helm (hope it's ok with everyone that it fits my narrative) his offenses have finished the year 39th, 58th, 5th, 30th, 25th, 43rd, 19th, 15th, 5th, and 3rd on KenPom, and they're currently 3rd again. 
    Keep on keepin' on, Franimal.

    You mean at a time directly after a pandemic when the schedule is already in flux anyway and basically nothing is set in stone? That'd make entirely too much sense.

    If a team is a potential NCAA tourney team, we SHOULD see how we compare to them.  And it's very favorably, so I don't see the issue.
