joeblough,

I'm glad that things are looking up. Please let us know how the dough/pizzas work out if you decide to make your own, and how they compare with what you have been using.

Wow!  Talk about running it to the .nth!  God love ya Pete-zza!

 Before I discovered this place, I found "Tiseo's"  One nice supermarket pizza dough.  Always reliable and always tasty.  Louis Tiseo makes a great dough.  I looked at the ingredients and figured I could copy it.  NOPE! 
I don't have the huge mixers, scalers, ballers, reefers, or packagers.  Or access to his resources.
Maybe I'll just try to make a pretty good dough on my own. 

Flour Water Salt Yeast.  Hmmph!!..  20 years ago, I would have called anyone crazy.  There must be a SECRET ingredient.


NOPE...  Technique and variations of the theme.  Just like Red-Yellow-Blue.  Black & White.  Mix them to your liking.

Jeff Varasano has been chasing this formula (preferment - variations of the theme and technique - HOT oven ) and has been rewarded with his PERFECT dough.   

It really is just that.  If I can do it, JoeBlough, anyone can.  Just watch, listen and experiment.  These guys on the forum are the real deal.  I ain't goin' back.
Good Luck!

Yes reefers...........These have been instrumental in both my failures and successes.They must be the secret ingredient. ;)

Although I'm sure David is just joking, I suspect "reefer" is jargon for refrigerator.  "Reefer" is also a transportation industry specific term that means "refrigerated trailer."

REEFER MADNESS!  No wonder I always craved Doritos after using that dough.
