I did it!!
« on: February 20, 2014, 09:25:58 AM »
After many failures and some ok pizza I finally have gotten to where I am making damn good pizza! I have worked at 7 different pizza shops in my life and have eaten at many others. Now I can make what I think is some of the best pizza I have ever had right in my home in my oven.

The keys to my success were.
Oven preheated for hour at highest setting 550 degrees is my highest
Cast Iron pizza pan ( this really did help compared to my pizza stone that i was using)
Placing Cast Iron pizza pan on lowest shelf
KASL High Gluten flour
Lehmans dough recipe with cold fermentation
This Pizza Making Forum and all the great info!!

You did, indeed, do it.  That is pretty food.  I look forward to hearing about any tinkering you do since I am cooking on cast iron as well.

Thanks everybody! I am excited about making good pizza!
One other thing I did that helped me was I increased the dough weight from 260 to 300grams per pie. I know you can make any size but the 260 wasnt working for me, seems I was always stretching too thin etc.

I used to love it when people would call the pizza places I worked at and asked how many slices come in your pie. I would ask them back how many do you want??

"We can cut it into 6 slices or 8 slices".  "Better make it 6, I don't think I can eat 8".  ;D

Good job on the pizza. It only gets better from here!
