Hey All,

I had a pretty good day this past Saturday Smoking, Drinking, & Relaxin w/ my Bro & my buddy... I had a pretty big menu planned since the weather was nice... My main goal was to make a Pizza Fatty wrapped in dough rather than bacon (idea i originally had from making pepperoni bread, cheese steak bread, and so on... I also asked GOT14U for a little advice as he has done this in the past, so special thanks to him)... i was planning it for a few weeks, but i had a bit of a mishap... we will get to that in a bit... BTW, this thread might be all over the place because the variety of the meal and i am putting it in order as things were done, so i apologies in advance LOL... thanks!

Thursday night after work I marinated some sliced up London Broil for Jerky...

Friday night after work a mixed up my dough to let it rise over night in the fridge... I usually do a simple style dough (warm water, yeast, & flour), but i wanted to change it up so i went online and got a recipe for Uno's Deep Dish Dough... They were nice enough to have this available on there website:  http://www.unos.com/about/press/2009/0109_1.html

UNO's MASTER DOUGH RECIPE

Yield: one 20-ounce ball of dough to make one 12-inch Chicago-Style Deep-Dish Pizza
  • 1 Package active dry yeast
  • ¾ Cup warm water (105-110 degrees F)
  • 1 Tsp. Sugar
  • ¼ Cup Corn oil
  • 2½ Cups All-purpose flour
  • 2 Tsp. Salt
  • 1 Tsp. Olive oil
  • 12" Deep-Dish Pizza Pan or Cake Pan
In a mixing bowl, dissolve the yeast with water and sugar. Add the corn oil and blend. Add the flour and salt and mix thoroughly. If using a stand mixer, mix for 4 minutes at medium speed, until the dough is smooth and pliable. If kneading by hand, knead for 7 to 8 minutes. Turn the dough out of the bowl and knead by hand for two additional minutes. Add olive oil to a deep bowl. Place the dough ball into the bowl and turn it twice to coat it with the oil. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and a kitchen towel.* Let the dough rise for two hours. Do not punch it down. Spread and push the dough ball across the bottom of the pan and up the sides.

*At this stage, the dough can be put in the refrigerator and allowed to rise slowly overnight. Take the dough out of the refrigerator at least an hour before you are ready to assemble the pizza.

I had to substitute the Corn Oil w/ Veggie oil (still tasted great)... I also decided to double the recipe... Here it is all mixed and in a ball Friday night....



Woke up Saturday morning & i took it out the Marinating Jerky and got it ready for the Dehydrator... I just recently started making jerky so i have been experimenting with different flavor combos... I did Honey & Hot Pepper Flakes, Cinnamon & Cayenne, Montreal, and finally just Honey...

Honey & Hot Pepper Flake (have done this twice and so far my favorite):

Cinnamon & Cayenne (pretty good, but needs some sweetness added)



Montreal (will do this again)

Just Honey



I put the jerky in the dehydrator and went to the store to get the rest of the days meal

ABTs being assembled (Cheddar Cheese & Mini Nathans Franks are the stuffing)



Turkey we rubbed down with Mayo and added Paprika, Thyme, Rosemary, Garlic Salt, Old Bay, & Black Pepper



Now for the Pizza Fatty... I used Zesty Hot Sausage stuffed w/ Mozzarella, Sliced up Whole canned Tomatoes, & Pepperoni... (started to roll and realized i forgot to take a pic)



After i rolled it i tried to tighten it up with plastic wrap (especially since i was not using bacon) it ended up tearing the fatty... i was highly upset, but decided to move on and improvise... I wrapped the torn roll tightly in tin foil and poke some holes for smoke penetration... still worked out fairly well...

Everything in the smoker:



Time to pull the dough and see what we got

I had a decent amount after rising so i decided to make a pepperoni deep dish while the food was smoking... (Mozzarella, sliced up the rest of the canned tomatoes left over from the Fatty, and some Italian seasoning)...

Jerky was done dehydrating while that pizza was cooking we sampled the flavors than i bagged them up for snaking during the week



Pizza was done and first taste of the dough i was happy... i will be using this dough again for other pizzas and experiments LOL

We enjoyed (devoured) the pizza and before we new it the ABTs were done (and eaten in record timing LOL)



The Turkey and the Fatty finished, so i wrapped the Turkey to rest... & i rolled out the remaining dough to get it ready to wrap around the fatty also added more cheese







I scored the top to limit chance of sides splitting



Backed for about 45 min & here is the Turkey after resting:







Sorry no sliced shots of the Turkey... But it was darn good... everything was smoked in apple wood... The Pizza Fatty wrapped in dough was a hit (even with the mishap) it will not be the last time i do one like this... It was top notch... Sorry for the declining clarity in the QView... they seem to deteriorate as my soberness did LOL... Thanks for looking!

Doesn't look like you were doing much of that "Relaxing"!

Thanks for showing,
