This looks like it will be a great forum for me and my quest to make a great pizza. My good friend is a real pro at making pizzas. He has a wood burning pizza oven, homemade tomato sauce for pizza or spaghetti (his mom makes tons of it), and a family member who owns a pizza bakery for the crust. She is now making the crust at home.
Of course they are Italian.
(I am not)
I want to learn how to make a great pizza of my own. I will be moving from him in the future :'(and need to learn not only from him but others from in this forum. I do not have a wood burn pizza oven yet. (I have the good old oven) and will have it for awhile.
I also want to make a pizza from him without his help. WHY? Because he is always cooking for my family and I want to make a masterpiece for him. I also want to explore new ideas, flavors and pizzas. (did that make sense?)
My biggest questions:
1. need an easy sauce recipe (semi-homade)
2. need to learn how to make a good crust. I think I saw a video in this forum
3. What ever tips you have for me:
stone or pan
thickness of crust
I should look in the forum.
I did a search and allot of stuff came up
please help me out.
