Pizza Pizza!

On a boring Sunday afternoon I was at home trying to find something to do when I decided to make this pizza.

It hadbeen many years since I had made one... the last time being when I was in H.S. in a Home Economics

class so I really didn't remember much about how to start. I looked fora recipe online and figured out that I

needed simple ingredientsto make the crust so I gathered up my stuff and started. I useda stand mixer to

prepare the pizza dough and then took it out when it formed a sticky ball and kept on kneading with my hands. 

I left the ball to rest for about to 2 hours and then started to form the pizza. I admit I had a bit of trouble

because it would shrink back and I don't know if it maybe was too dry.. which it didn't seem to be or that's just

the way its supposed to be. If anyone can give me any tipson how I could make it better I'll gladly use them

next timeI bake one. I have to admit that the flavor was pretty good. I was surprised that it didn't have

an aweful taste to it haha. Well,here is my creation.. and if you have any ideas or advice for me please let me know.

Very nice looking pizza.  I would recommend Peter Reinhart's book "American Pie".  I love making pizza's in my indoor and woodfired oven and have learned some things from reading his book and lots of practice...!!  I have a few pizza photos on my blog and the way I made them...check out Floyd's pizza primer in the menu list!

I don't like to post links to other sites, but I couldn't find a way to PM you.  Here's a real good site for pizza makers.
