BKSinAZ - I live in Bisbee! My friends are about to open a pizzeria on Tombstone Cny. We hope to open in the first week of February. I will be the baker. I have been working on the dough for well over a year now...I think I have finally perfected it - with the help of this site which my sister Linda introduced me to about six months ago. Love, love, love this site! I made a starter about 13 years ago using just organic raisins, water, and flour, and have been baking wonderful bread from it all these years. The pizza dough is leavened entirely from this same starter, and it is really good! All this working on the pizza dough had the unexpected benefit of making my bread skills take a quantum leap forward. I read through this site every morning while I drink my coffee, and am always impressed by the fabulous breads, desserts, and the information shared. It's all about "community" although everyone is spread across the map. Baking at a mile high elevation can be a bit of a challenge, but everything I have made from this site has turned out beautifully. Even though I have never met them, or exchanged any words, Shiao-Ping, Floyd, David, Norm, and Susan seem like old friends. Love how everyone is so supportive and helpful! If you find yourself in Bisbee, stop by and say hello: Screaming Banshee Pizza, 200 Tombstone Cny. Cheers! Juliette
