Nice pics, Bob. What are your topping there?
Reason I ask, I notice your toppings are swimming and submerged amongst all the cheese. I was getting similar results with my sausage & mushroom pies when I made a relativity thin crust.
When I buy a S&M pizza locally the toppings are usually nicely presented on top of the cheese and that's what I wanted to get with my home baked S&M pizza too.
I made one adjustment. I initially left the S&M toppings off. I baked the pizza with just the sauce & cheese about half way until I saw the cheese bubbling and rising up. Then I'd quickly remove the pie, add the S&M toppings and complete the bake. That did the trick!
Hey nothing wrong with submerged S&M in cheese, but if you ever wondered about that, I'm just sharing with you here.
