Default Is it wrong to pre-bake the crust?

I have made my last 2 batches of pizza by first baking the crust in the WFO then building the pizza on the pre-baked crust. I like this method as the crust turns out to be a nice fluffy consistency from the center out to the edge. When I cook it all at once the center of the crust is usually thin and soggy. The pre-baked crust method also avoids the dreaded pizza stuck to the peal. I think this bonus is going to make my pizza events much less stressful. The pizzas still taste awesome so I don't see a down side to this method aside from the fact that it adds an extra step to the process, but who cares - I love cooking in this thing.

For some people it works. Soggy dough should not be tolerated and if this is the best way to fix the problem... go for it!

When I took the class at Ramekins - that's how she did it. It came out great. Myself, I cook it all at once.
