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.....
Quicky King Oyster Pizza.

The kids making pizza for dinner. It's a great way to have them not complain about who gets to eat what! I've recently been baking them right on the pizza stone on the grill but my son complains that the bottom turns out a little too well done so we may have to go back to using the screens. I may experiment with turning the grill down - usually I turn all the burners up to max which gives a burning hot grill - perhaps too hot on the stones as they see the majority of the heat. This works OK with the pizzas on the screens but directly on the stone seems to be too hot.

Throw some semolina on the stone. That little lift/aeration may help.

Are you closing the lid? If not they are probably on the stone too long and the bottom is done first. Close lid, and take out sooner perhaps. Anyway looks fun!
