you are right Morgan, this is a grey area... dont worry, if you hang out around here you will learn how to distinguish...

Scott123, im waiting for some kinda advice on this, i would like to bake couple pies on sunday :chef:

If, by Sunday, you mean Easter Sunday, then sure, no problem  :-D

Seriously, though, while this isn't going to take weeks, you may not achieve pizza bliss in a matter of days.  We're progressing nicely, and I see a light at the end of the tunnel, but the Finnish ingredients will increase the learning curve.

While that pizza is one of the best frozen pizzas I've ever seen, you have my word that you can top it with your own recipe.

Does the frozen pizza box list ingredients, and, if so, could you post them here? A photo of the nutritional label would be helpful also.

Have you been launching your pizzas with a peel and baking them on a stone?  If so, could you describe the stone and/or take a photo?

Do you have a digital scale for measuring ingredients?

It might be time to start a new post in another sub section of the forum.  While this isn't a 'pure' New York style pizza, it's closer to that than any other, imo, so you might want to start a thread in that forum.

There is some ingredients on the packet, photo below. I have used vuolukivi size 10x300x300mm i think its translated soapstone, its better than
my real pizzastone. I also have granit stone, but not tested it yet.

Main ingredients:

wheat flour, water, mozzarella 18%, crushed tomato sauce 7.2%, tomato paste 7.2%, sunflower oil, salt, yeast, olive oil, sugar, oregano.


I will start new threat on ny style.

Morgan, can you get a larger (thicker/wider/longer) piece of vuolukivi? Preferably a slab that's pretty white and not green or purple?

I was hoping to get more information than that from the ingredients, but, unfortunately, the oil and the sugar could be in the crust or the sauce. No biggie, we'll just test the dough with or without both.

Theres not much information on the packet, they really dont want to share it. Im not shure there is white stones here in Finland, have to dig in to this.
