As for having perfectly round pizza... I gave up that goal long ago.  As long as it tastes good I don't care.  Make it in the shape of Florida, a beehive hairdo, or a trapezoid.  Whatever blows your skirt up.

The best part about pizza is, well, pizza. I totally agree

Made pizza again last night.  Tried pressing the dough out onto parchment paper, then sliding the whole thing onto the hot stone with a pizza peel. Worked really well. At 500 degrees, I'm surprised the paper didn't burn, but it was fine. Family and guest said, "Best ever", which made me happy.

Oh man - wish I had known about this thread! I made some pizza at home for the first time on my own this weekend for my family for mothers day (my roommate showed me how to do it a couple weeks ago). Both pizzas turned out great! Wish I had gotten some pics

I used fresh mozz (a ball of it was on sale for $.99 at Kroger since "use by" was that same date).
I used the Trader Joes dough because my roommate swears by it and I didn't have time to let one rise and all that.
I used fresh basil off my basil plant on the porch.
Made the tomato sauce myself
Boom - Margherita!

PizzaSteve, I think you and I are twins separated at birth.

Search YouTube for "NBI Pizza School" for my dough-making videos.

LOL.  Rock on.

Great job.   By the way, if you must use fancy expensive TD dough, i recommend balling it in 250gram portions and putting in an oiled sealed container in fridge or on an oiled surface (covered with damp cloth) if you are baking within an hour or two.  The round shape greatly facilitates a round pizza, when stretching after rise.  Dust top and put with plenty of flour on surface where you will stretch the dough.  TD dough is quite wet and takes some extra flour just fine.
Thanks for the recommendations!

Yes I noticed it very wet as well, and my roommate recommended using some extra flour. I did have hard time rolling the dough out on the parchment paper on the counter...the parchment paper just slid everywhere and the flour kinda went everywhere too. Not sure how I could remedy that..

I'll have to look into your dough making recipe/ process some when I'm at home and see if I'm game. I think I'd rightly enjoy it. (I know this is MMM, but I can hardly see how a $1.19 for pizza dough could be termed 'expensive'. I get that it can "be made for a few cents" like most breads, but saving money would simply not be the reason I'd be choosing to make my own dough).

Great thread!

I use the basic dough from "Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day," which makes a super tasty, thick crust. I love that it is always ready; just hanging out in the fridge in an ice cream pail. No kneading required. 

I have totally ruined myself for store bought or restaurant pizza because none taste as good as my own pizza! haha!

I parbake the dough at 300 degrees for about 10 minutes and then pull it out to add sauce and toppings. Then I crank the oven to 475 (high temp is key) and cook it till its done.

If I'm feeling lazy, we will have pizza bagels or pizza buns (English muffins) -- they are a reasonable facsimile if you're pinched for time, but certainly not gourmet tasting like the ones pictured.

Farewell pizza bro...dicey and a few others dont want my type around here, so leaving the forum...it was fun.  Deleting my personal content.

WTF? Here's my last comment on this thread:

I think your name should be KingPizzaSteve.

If you're serious, I, for one, will be sorry to see you go.

Anyone tried cast-iron tortilla pizzas before? One of my favorite snacks/side dishes. Literally takes 5-8 minutes to make one too!

I voted.  Then I came home and made pizza.
