The formulation is posted below. The two photos of the KA starter were taken before the KA starter had increased to its fullest in activity after feeding. It was darker inside so I did not take a photo of what the KA starter looked like before it was whisked into the water.
The KA sourdough starter and IDY dough ball looked like it had about doubled in size until I got home from market today. I put the dough ball into the oven with the light on to warm it up faster. I got the toppings ready and then went outside to turn the motor on for the Blackstone. I had checked the propane tank and it seemed a little low in propane because the tank was light. I then had to take the propane tank off of the BBQ grill and hook it to the hose on the Blackstone. I thought a breaker must have tripped in my shed because the motor did not want to run at all. I tried another extension cord, but that did fix the problem of the motor not running. I then took the Blackstone top apart and tried to run the motor without the key or top platter. It ran and turned with the key in. I then checked the bearings mod and it was dry. I got some grease and greased the bearings. Not to take any more chances, (since it soon would start getting dark) I put my regular pizza stone on the platter instead of the firebricks. The Blackstone heated up faster than I thought it would. I turned the heat down a little and went inside to open the dough ball and dress the pie. The poppy seed spacing then showed the dough ball more than doubled in size.
The KA starter and IDY dough ball opened like a dream into a skin. The pizza was dressed with a new mozzarella, my regular sauce from market and Ciao pepperoni. When I got back outside the temperature on the pizza stone was a little higher than I wanted, but thought I don't want the pie to stick to the wooden peel.
The pizza baked well with good oven spring. The flavor of the crust was very good and different than other pies I have made. The inside of rim crust was very moist and the edges of the rim crust were nice and a little bit crisp (something like an eggshell but not exactly). I guess the KA sourdough starter and IDY crust “knocked my socks off, and made my toes wiggle”.
Thanks Chau for us about finding your first love again and sharing your formulation! I don't know if I have found mine, but the pie sure was good
