Gas Oven Pizza
In 2021 I did not use the woodfired pizza oven once, and I replaced our gas oven in the kitchen with an electric one because I bought the new oven without checking that the old one was electric.
Tonight I made pizzas with a pizza stone on the gas BBQ and they turned out so well I felt I should capture the recipe for future reference.
348g Bread Flour
hearty pour of mixed herbs
196ml warmish water
25ml olive oil
No need to activate the yeast, just mix dry ingredients then add the wet stuff. Knead with bread hook for 7m 30s using low knead for first 50% of time and to one higher than low for final 50%.
Lightly coat hands with oil and form dough into a ball, then cover and leave to rise for ~1hr.
Put pizza stone on the Weber and heat with lid down at full power for at least 30min, target 200 degrees C.
Roll out 3 bases and leave covered with towel to rise for ~15m.
Cook on hot pizza stone for ~10 minutes to get crispy base and smoky, well cooked top.
Today I also discovered that one of my neighbours trees is a plum tree, and that the rainbow lorikeets have also discovered this. I'm partly disappointed because I like free plums but also happy because I like free rainbow lorikeets.
Nothing else important happened today, albeit I did not check the news.
