As I watched this show and saw all the mistakes and mishaps by those contestants, it was like seeing all the same mistakes I've made over 15+ years of learning to make pizza at home. Such as dropping a fully loaded raw pie onto the floor, using a rolling pin to stretch the dough, odd shaped pizza, burnt bottom, under-baked bottom, etc..
It just goes to show how difficult it really is to master the art of pizza making. Given some of the best equipment and supplies they still couldn't make it. Granted, they had lots of pressure and time constraints, but still, these are people striving to be pros.
I had to laugh when the one female contestant made a comment about how simplistic it is to make a pizza and then her pizza got only a 2 rating because it was raw and under-baked.
I also had a good laugh when the girl dropped her fully loaded uncooked pie onto the floor. Been there, done that.
I thought the peels they were using were over sized for the small pies they were making.
The ovens must have been operating at about 500 Deg F because I heard someone say it was supposed to be about a 10 minute bake.
I enjoyed the show, but it was a bit nerve racking.
