Another Annual Mt Tam Birthday Ride in the books, this time with special guest appearances by Alpine Dam @mikeyk . Always and forever a great way to kick off the next year.
Some truly terrible photos of tonight’s pizza. Dough was balls I got delivered from Pizzaiolo last weekend, froze, and thawed. Fired in the Roccbox at around 3 mins each 1 ) crema, shrooms with garlic and thyme, mozz, asiago, sage 2 ) sauce, mozz, sausage, onion 3 ) pesto, mozz, asiago, red onion, cherry tomatoes
In Chicago, so I had to cross Pequod’s and its famed caramelized frico crust off the list. Verdict? Honestly, the edge was nice but it still was one of those doughy Chicago crusts at the end of the day. 🤷♂️ Also, what does it say about me that I felt self-conscious eating pizza with my hands instead of knife and fork?
Ever since I moved into my first apartment, I’ve wanted a big slab dining table. This summer, I asked myself, why not build it myself, Now, five months after I began, I’ve finally applied the first coat of finish. It’s been really fun working with my hands to make something we needed, and learning/figuring out the skills I needed along the way. One more coat of finish and attaching the legs, and it’ll be ready for the inaugural meal.
That pizza life #jasperapizza
