The pros will jump in here like Peter, but everything looks great. I see you are using all purpose flour..... if you
could get your hands on King Arthur, it's too bad you didn't pick up some of their high gluten stuff which we Canadians CANNOT get our hands on
In any event, you will make some very good pizza, and with some help you will be on your way.
I see you have the beginnings of a great PHOTO story also. Please make sure to keep us up to date with new
images as you go along, I for one really enjoy and really appreciate it when the pizza guys show us their journey
through the magic of photography.
The pan looks just like one of the ones I use, and I've had super success with it.
All ingredients look great.
One thing which is nice is this..... get a recipe together with the stuff you have there. Then
make the pizza. Take some notes, take lots of images.
Then, with Peter and other's help you can then tweak your ingredients, change some totally, change some
of the percentages, and then bake again, and this way you have something to judge your second pizza to..
it's a great way to start off.
Anyway good luck, and no you don't need anything special to knead dough, if you dont have a Kitchen Aid or DLX mixer
then you will create some good forearms in the next few months
I use my countertop as many do, and that's
totally fine. I use canned pizza sauce all the time, just because I can't get my hands on the good stuff many of the guys get down south of the border. Anyway don't worry you will make good pizza
As Charlie Papazian says "don't worry, relax and have a homebrew"
( he's the most famous American homebrewer in history )
Good luck and keep us post, and don't give up. One great thing is to keep coming back to this website, I make it my homepage so it's always there and on my mind.
