What's standing between you and your first bake?
Fair question. Yes, my Blackstone has been assembled, cleaned, and blessed a few days ago.
I could have attempted my first bake at that time, but between work, redoing the kitchen, and reading up on NP on our forum I'm a bit stretched.
Mainly though, it was just me trying to "feel" comfortable enough with the basic ingredients and how to properly prepare and use them. At this point I'm there. So what is left? I will be getting my propane tank filled tomorrow. The plan is to bake this Sunday, so will need to buy bafala and a healthy basil plant to maintain and use.
I will attempt to make it close to "regulation" in my first and/or second bake, but I am used to putting some oregano and garlic on my pizza (that I buy) and here the rules say only sea salt on the Margherita.
So I will probably break some rules later on with garlic and oregano as I see fit.
