Glad to hear it wasn't a total loss even though overcooked... but the comment that made me feel the best is that the crust was RIGHT! I sincerely hope that Patrick (pcampbell) is able to replicate your success with my dough recipe!
I'm going to try your cheese mix. I have not tried american yet and have tried yellow cheddar only a couple of times... and on a round pizza, not my Tommy's. Mom and I are in agreement that Tommy's had no yellow in the cheese, so I will try white cheddar and white american. Hey, another excuse to make pizza! (as if I need one!)
Thanks for posting your results and pics... that crust photo looks REALLY good, nice and fried like it's supposed to be! In my initial iterations with Tommy's, it was too dang hot (yes, in Seattle!) to cook indoors, so I lit the charcoal and threw the pan on the grill with the lid closed... it was VERY good, albeit quite overcooked. But I didn't care because, while it didn't taste like Tommy's due to the smokiness, it was still very tasty and DH and I ate the whole thing!
If you continue to experiment, please post your results!
