    Thanks Yahoo. I kicked it up a notch with some really good Amish Swiss cheese I found at the store. Can't wait to get some tomatoes in the garden!

    About the pizza... It looks yummy. Can you break it down for me? What kind of sauce are you using? Did you make it yourself? And whatever else you want to divulge.

    Yessir Steve. Pizza making is my specialty. I even help out my friend Albert Grande at his pizza forum. The Pizza Therapy Forum and Pasta Therapy Forum :: Index

    For the pizza in the pic, I just bought my sauce from the store in a jar. It's so much easier and quicker... I think I added a little bit of sugar to it because that's how I like it. I used a stone dish for mine too (had to let it bake a little longer).

    For the deep dish pizza in the pic, I basically used this recipe: DKM's Chicago-Style Deep Dish pizza recipe

    The "purist" folks weigh their ingredients and all that... I just do my best, come close and it comes out better than the pizzeria down the road. Make it yourself and use the fresh stuff, you will be happy. Make sure you let your dough rise overnight in the fridge tho, this makes a noticeable difference. If you don't it will still work...

    A few tips for making a good pizza are:

    Let your dough rise overnight in the fridge. Flavor is much better.

    Get yourself a pizza stone and warm it up for 45 minutes at the highest setting in your oven. When you slide your pizza onto the stone, the moisture will escape from the crust giving it that"crunch" when you cut it. Should only take like 5 minutes to bake a regular pizza.

    A peel is that thing you slide you pizza off of into the oven. Sprinkle it with cornmeal before assembling your pie so it doesn't stick when you go to slide it in the oven onto the stone. One time I went to slide it and it stuck on the peel. All the topping slid off into the oven. if you don't have a peel, you can use the backside of a cookie sheet too I heard.

    Don't buy that shredded mozzarella in a bag. Are you nuts? Shred or slice your own from a good block of mozzarella! Use fresh toppings too, it all adds up.

    It's a little time consuming to make your own from scratch, but it really is awesome once you get the hang of it. Your friends will be stunned and amazed! I built a wood fired oven in my backyard for the ultimate pizza making experience, and it was worth it. I had the inside shell imported from Italy ($$$$), but others have made their own from regular firebricks with great success.

    Like I said, it takes some time and a little trial and error, but it's worth it if you love pizza as much as I do. Any questions feel free to ask.

    Nice. Supper of champions!

    I wanted to get a smaller bird too. It was either 13 or 24 pounders and nothing in between when I was at the store... I deep fried a 13 ~ pounder the last few years and it was fantastic! But this year I want to get back to tradition and cook one in the oven. Cooking a turkey in the oven is super easy and it just makes the whole house smell really good. I'm sure it drives the dogs nuts too! LOL... I can't wait to fall into a food coma next week!
