Norma,

Whatever sub-category of this challenge that your NY Style pie is entered in should be closed to further entries. You have the clear winner!!! :drool:

I think that Norma could take a piece of corrugated cardboard, ketchup and some nacho cheese and make an excellent pizza out of it!

+1

John, Jonas and Deb,

I think this is challenge like all of the other challenges that were on the forum before.  There is no winner in any of these challenges.  In some of the challenges I entered before (and there were quite a few before they were stopped) it is just about trying to make a decent pizza no matter what the challenge was.  Some of my prior results were not that good, but it was fun trying anyway. 

No one really tasted my pizza except me and photos can be deceiving.

Norma

I have to admit that the whole voting/competitive aspect kinda takes the fun out of it!   :chef:

Midwest-style thin crust pizza.  I figured that since the competition was officially over, I would cheat and use more than one additional ingredient.  I made one of the included dough packs with 1/2 cup water (1/6 cup less than called for) and IMO this was too much water for this style of dough.  The sauce is very watery so I reduced over heat to about 1/2 the original volume.  Added 1/2 tsp oregano.  Dough was mixed and kneaded by hand, proofed at room temp for 2 hours, and rolled out to 14".  Topped with sauce, tons of cheese (whole milk mozz provolone mix), homemade chicago-style italian sausage (Garvey), shrooms, and black olives.  Baked for 12 minutes on stone preheated at 450 for 1 hour (with oven temp increased to 500 when pie was launched).

Turned out good, better than some pizzas i've bought at restaurants and bars.  To be honest though, I think this was mostly a result of the good cheese and sausage I used.  Please excuse the sloppy edge on the bottom of the top photo, my cutting board is too small for the pizza and the edge folded over making it look out-of-round.   :chef:
