The Last Great Pizza Thread

'Bout time we had a thread for all those that make their own dough and sauce. Too many good cooks on THP to let something as magnificent as that king of foods, pizza go unnoticed on this forum. This thread however comes with some rules to post...

1) Make your own dough and post the recipe. Thin crust. Whole wheat. Foccacia. NY or Chicago style. Naan....your choice!

2) Make your own sauce and post the recipe. Red. White. Olive oil w/ garlic. Whatever gets your mojo workin'!

3) Mandatory that it brings teh heat. Habs. Serrano's. Bhut's. T-Scorps. Fatalli. Hot sauce's and puree's will qualify. Using wimp sauce's such as Tabasco Brand or Franks will
be ridiculed with extreme prejudice and boooooed heavily!

4) Toppings can be anything. Pepperoni. Avocado. Greek olives. Pulled pork. If it came out of the ground or walked, swam or crawled, its all cool and the gang!

5) Bake them in the oven on a sheet pan. In cast iron. A pizza stone. On the grill. Got a wood fired pizza oven? Have mercy!

6) Pics are mandatory! Anyone can talk smack about it but put up or shut up. No pics? It never happened and ridiculing and boooooing will follow. Capiche?

Alright ya'll, lets get it on.....

Drove by Alesi Pizza today and bought some dough. It was early with only a few cars in the lot and met both of those guys in the vid. I remember coming here since I was young, probably 8 or 9. Didn't remember it being cracker crust but I might have messed it up along the way,

Then went to the store and robbed the salad bar and bought some cheese. How can you get pizza toppings cheaper? Shredded ham, pepperoni, bacon, black olives and red bells, all for $6. It's almost like stealing, was that wrong? A few other ingredients and I'm ready for pizza.

Will look for it down here.  Never seen it before, but there's always the internet.
 
Unless you're in Alaska.
 
Or some parts of Washington State.
 
You won't find it.
 
I have to use Amazon Prime.
 
But well worth it.

Ingredient #3 is artificial flavor. Damn, that's a lot of artificial flavor!

I ate at a restaurant.
 
Might have been Gwennies on Spenard.
 
I got a chicken fried steak.
 
Sandwich.
 
But no white gravy.
 
Instead it had melted scheeze.
 
And an Alaskan portion.
 
Of ranch dressing.
 
Along with tomato.
 
Dill pickles.
 
And yes.
 
Lettuce.
 
Served with french fries.
 
Covered in queso.
 
The waitress had 2 orgasms.
 
Just bringing the plate to me.
 
Si senor!
 
It was that good.
 
After I ate it.
 
I had visions.
 
Of mating with wild rabid she werewolves.
 
And howling.
 
Like banshee's at midnight.
 
 
But yeah.
 
Ranch dressing.
 
Is probably bad for y'all.

That doesn't sound too bad. Like a salad on a sammie.
 
I'm used to chicken parmigiana. You know, the pounded fried chicken breast with sauce and cheese. But once I got it... milanese... basically a salad on top, but was arugula, sliced cherry (or grape) tomatoes, tossed in olive oil, with shaved parmigiano reggiano. You will never go back!!!!! Okay you will. But salad on meat still rules.
 
Wait.
 
It wasn't Gwennies.
 
Its clear to me now.
 
It was the Fly In.

Would make your wife cheat on you!
 
For a sandwich.
 
But.

We do that kine sheeit.
