First party
Best pizza I had, and it was our own. Can't wait
To try all the other things I've seen cook on this site.
This has been a great project and my family will
Enjoy it for years to come.

Re: First party
Looks excellent. The only thing I would change is putting the fire to the left or right. I have been known to launch a pizza into the coals when they are in the back.

Re: First party
Very nice looking delicious pizzas!
Question: Did you use the same dough in both the second and third pictures? the third looks to me made of 00 flour, while the second does not.

Re: First party
Same dough different makers the nice round
ones I made. Worked in a pizza shop in HS back
92! The others guests made and streched way thin.
For this first outting got dough local pizza shop
2$ a small ball??? Why even mess with it at that
Price?? I'm sure I will thou.. Really want a sour dough.
Possibly it was a heat thing also? Being first outting I
Was getting the cooking/timing down. So yea one
Looks more brown? It was just in a little longer.

Re: First party
Cobblerdave I worked in a pizza shop in high school for 2 years 91-92. I'm surprised how easy it came back to me after almost 22 years.

Interested to try some of the pizza recipes you learned at the pizza shop if you care.

Re: First party
Even in 1992 they made the dough and
It wasn't known what was in it... As for
Toppings canned sauce and all the normal
Stuff, pepperoni, mozzerila cheese, oinions
Hamburger, ham, sausage.... I think I'm
Ready to dive into making my own dough next.

Re: First party
I'm used to using this simple dough recipe:
3.5 cups 00 flour
1.5 cup of water
1 tea spoon salt
1 tea spoon sugar
1 tea spoon dry yeast
2 table spoons olive oil
Knead for 20 minutes by hand or for 10 minutes by the machine.
Rest until it doubles in size.
It is better to mix the yeast with water and sugar first to boost the yeast off...
More olive oil > More crispy pizza
Less olive oil > More tender pizza
