  • Have a great vacation!

    We are always our own worst critics, but your pies always looks super and I bet they taste as much. And that's a result of you exactly being a good critic of yourself and having dedicated time to improve.

    ^^^ Could not have said it better.

  • Thank you so much Heine and Arne, there is something familiar there. I have never done sports or competitions but have to confess to lying awake before a bake trying to figure out what would make it better. A drop in expert would be a wonderful thing! I donít want to make many pies but damnit, I want them to be good. Yes, Sharon thinks I am crazy too . .  .. but the next bake will be . . .  .

  • I know the feeling Icelandr and certainly have had my share of pizza frustration too and still do from time to time. Like when the bottom breaks, or comes out uneven, as an oval or the pizza won't come of the peal at all but the cheese will and you hear a tssss. When i look at my first bakes that i shared with you all in my own topic, i now can see the progression that i have made already. Perhaps when you look at your first pictures and your last, you can see that too!

    That last Margherita you can run a business with, i'd be coming back for sure!

    Ability to make pizza . . . . Not so much!
    What if the sourdough has perished? My oven I am sure needs a good fire . . . .
    Silly to miss making pizza! But!

  • you should not be worrying about pizza with that view. Relax, enjoy your trip!

    But that's easy for me to say because I'm making pizza next weekend...

  • I'm with Jon. On both accounts.

    But you have the passion and there is no way around a little withdrawal I guess. I will not intervene.

    Enjoy your vacation! Jon, myself and the rest of your forum friends will try our best to entertain you when you pop in here for a fix.
