Besides time constraints, we love the dough. I am a serious cook so I appreciate making things from scratch, but Trader Joe's dough just really works for us for NY style pizza. I have eaten at some of the best pizzerias in New York, Chicago, and beyond and when I make our pizzas they are up there with the best. I see on this web site that people really enjoy tweaking the recipes and such and that is great, but when something purchased works so brilliantly for me, I prefer to direct my efforts into other areas like making home made italian sausage, sauce, etc. or perfecting my other culinary pursuits. The only thing we cannot fully reproduce is the age old wood/coal fired ovens and the super heat and the subsequent characteristics they yield. In my dreams, my next house will have one.............albeit without the wonderful benefits of age.
