    First pizza, then pineapple as dessert :)
    But heck, fresh pineapple has no comparison to that tinned stuff!

    Looking good!
    Great fun with the whole family ;)

    I'm eating a lot of pizza as well.

    I think I've mentioned it before, but if you struggle loading the pizza, try some polenta / corn meal or whatever it's called in your neck of the woods.
    Works so much better than flour

    Y'all are good natured, so I can get away with picking on you without being malicious.
    Zambezi is fun because of the differences in diet between there and here. So, to have fun without being mean: If I had some cornmeal, it wouldn't go on pizza, I would be frying up some green tomatoes.
    Grits- Gotta have some shrimp, a crapload of butter, and some pork fat LOL.

    Not on a freaking pizza man:eek:

    Just underneath to roll it of the peel

    But you are right in another way: i only have it because it is staple food here.
    I actually don't like it, but since my staff goes through 25 kg in 10 days, I just sneakily grab a hundred gram or so for myself.
    Actually, not sneakily, as I buy the freaking stuff:D

    I know - as the base.
    You put some fat in that stuff and put some shrimp in with it, yummm.
    Grits are a popular breakfast side in the South too, but usually with a crapload of butter.

    Semolina is the best option if you can get it.
    It works the same as cornmeal but isn't bitter like the cornmeal.
    Also if you use a wood peel to launch, just a dusting of flour will work too, but it takes practice

    Thanks I'll have to make one :)

    Rice flour should work too I know I use that as a dusting in baneton for breads.

    That's what that stainless thing is for I just ain't mastered the technique 20230401_094342.jpg

    It does take a bit of practice :)
    I use a wooden peel to launch and a steel one to turn and take the pizza out.
    But a steel one also works for launching.

    Easiest is to put the pizza on the peel that has flour or semolina or whatever on it, then shake a bit to see if the pizza can move.
    Then quickly load toppings and launch.

    But yes baking paper works, I just wouldn't like it in the ooni with that flame thrower in action

    Has a taste for pizza but didn't have the usual time or flour to make it.
    So a completely new process on a different flour.
    Tonight will tell, but I'm sure it'll be fine.
    Cheers
