This will air Friday Oct 17th. at 7pm central time zone. Never seen this program before. Looks like they will try their hand at making a California pizza.

Sorry, it was TNT. I even edited the post but somehow missed it. It was OK. They had to make pizzas that would be good enough to be added to the California Pizza Kitchen menu. The contestants  did not have to make the dough, I guess they used pre made California pizza dough to make the pies. It was interesting to see the variety of toppings. The winner seemed a little introverted, I think winning helped her self esteem. I liked the idea of every one of her pies they sold, some of the profit would go to a good charity.

I turned in channel surfing. The contestants opened the dough quite well.
Way too many toppings. 20 ingredients in the winning pie. Thought they would reject that one cause of the complexity.

All the pies were top heavy. I did not see anything I would go nuts over. I would have hand stretched and knuckle stretched instead of trying to toss the skins. I wonder what the oven temps and cook times were. I don't think I would watch a rerun of this episode. I don't usually watch cooking challenges often.
