See what I mean about the dough pulling away from the sides?

That looks terrific, you did a great job with that. I just ate dinner and that still looks delicious.

A fish may been a certain size in a 50 gallon aquarium for many years but drop it in a 100 gallon tank and it will grow larger, thatís why I donít want to buy bigger pants.

This is a bad, bad site. :)

I have a beautifully seasoned cast-iron skillet and I will certainly be doing this very soon.

I'm going to try a small Chicago DD tonight in a Lodge 8 inch skillet. I'll post pics if it turns out; if it doesn't turn out then I'll have a nice grilled sandwich. I've got a lot of deli meat. Anyone ever try grilling a sandwich using regular Mayo instead of butter? It works better and is less greasy. Honest!

I was playing with the dog and forgot about the pizza for a few crucial minutes and it got a tad overdone on top. It still tasted really good though. It shot out of the cast iron skillet like a pilot's ejection seat. Easy peasy. I really like using the skillet and it doesn't feel like it would come out any better in a more traditional pan. Any thoughts?

I have a thought....  Do you deliver???  Great looking pie, I will be trying this soon.  I'm gonna use provalone cheese and some pepperoni though.
