"Watch, do, teach" heard that somewhere a long time ago. Seems to help me learn.
 
Disclaimer: I am no expert, in fact I started making my own pizza only about 3 months before I joined PM.com.
 
This video is of me, in my cook shack, opening a dough ball, dressing the same and baking in a Pizza Party oven.
I know that I have a long way to go, but feel that I have learned a lot too.
 
Please feel free to  critique and make suggestions on my technique.
 
Hope this video is helpful to some of you! It was fun making and I was suprised it turned out.

Great video mark, thanks for posting it.  I liked it so much I watched it twice.  I searched and searched for videos of people opening dough on a counter for a long time before I ever actually tried it, and I'm sure this will help many home pizza makers.  You should get a helper on the video camera some time, i'd love to see your whole process, launch, turning, etc.

Your dough looks really nice and soft and supple.
Pizza is not bread.

Ya, it must be the 62F ferment box! :o
Sometimes I wish I could pick it up and toss it, but no way, Jose! ::)
Thanks for all your help and encouragement. :)

Jake, those union video helpers are SOOOOOO expensive! I think that with the proper props and super fast motion, I might be able to do the whole thing solo, while shaving with my double edged razor. :-D
Thanks for watching!
