    I can't take full credit for this I got it from a cook book but it's good.

    I buy the dough, throw it in a hot frying pan once it bubbles and feels firm throw that frying pan in the oven and broil it. Makes the crust nice and crispy.

    For the sauce just tomatoe sauce and paste, Italian seasoning, a touch of red wine vinegar, salt pepper, a little sugar, garlic powder (if no garlic powder use less Italian seasoning and adobo).

    Let's hear it TBOT, how do you make your pizza (don't say order it).

    Am I not allowed to say, 'order it'?

    I didn't say you weren't allowed I just said don't say it.

    The next order you make may have some trouble as toppings.

    Tomato puree and paste, light sugar, olive oil, garlic for the sauce. Mozzarella and a little cheddar. Pepperoni and fresh mushrooms.
    For the crust, sometimes fresh dough, sometimes Pillsbury.

    We are talking about making a antipasto pizza. I'll post the results after we eat it.

    Last year my wife wanted me to make pizza on the grill. I kept making excuses because I thought it would make a horrible mess. Finally gave in when she said she would clean the mess if it happens. Bottom line she was right. we have since enjoyed many grilled pizzas.

    Sounds like pan pizza. Hmm, where have I heard that before?

    Just kidding. I have a pizza stone but have never made my own pizza on it. Just put frozen-food pizza on it.

    Homemade all the way! I'm actually doing that for tonight's meal. I make my dough, but I tend to use sauce from a jar. Here's one I made a while back with thinly-sliced leftover Tri-Tip.

    I am in an opposite position I used to eat grilled pizzas as a kid but never made one myself. I am convincing my fiancé grilled pizzas good maybe this this week I will make one.

    Please do post the results of you antipasti pizza, damn I'm hungry now.

    homemade dough (flour, salt, oil, yeast... like I use to make when I worked in pizzerias)... I like to top it with Ricotta cheese, leafy greens that have been cooked down in a pan with some fresh garlic and seasalt, fresh mozzarella, and some raw thinly sliced onion. If I'm making a red pie, I just use some of my homemade tomato sauce... my English mother's basic recipe tweaked with my years of training in Italian restaurants. It is still basically hers though, it has always been my favorite flavor... my wife is Italian and she hates eating her family's cooking after tasting mine :D

    Pan pizza yeah that sounds exotic.

    A lot of people though make pan pizza just by tossing it in the oven at 425 to 500 degrees the crust just doesn't crisp the same.

    I've never made pan pizza. But I used to make pizzas at a restaurant. Tossing dough in the oven just bakes it. Pre-frying the dough sounds like a good idea. I may try that in an iron griddle I have.
  12. ImNotJoel


    Jan 12, 2014
    Yeah an iron griddle would be perfect. As you know being a former pizza maker those ovens are like seven hundred degrees so the surface will crisp. As you said a domestic oven just bakes it pre frying then broiling takes it near a pizza oven quality at home.

    This may sound weird, but a pizza made in an Blodgett oven tastes as good as a brick-oven pizza.

    Jan 12, 2014
    Doesn't sound weird at all. They wouldn't sell Blodgett ovens of they couldn't produce near or equivalent results.
  15. Huge homemade pizza fan. Make our own dough, sauce ect. Usually we make a BBQ sauce pizza, we make our own BBQ sauce. Lately we have been doing some pesto sauce pizzas, haven't tried making out own pesto yet.

    We have a pizza stone and use the oven. If we had a grill, can't because of living in an apartment, I would use it. When we have a house, I plan on building a backyard, wood fired pizza oven.

    I love BBQ pizza when it's done good. If you got a good BBQ sauce don't hold out on us.
  17. Well, I don't make it as much as I combine a store bought whiskey one with some sriracha and call it homemade. I also fry some garlic and sweet onions in butter and spread that around as well.

    Has the goofy TB quota been met? If no, I'd like to submit an application. I love homemade pizza. My last 2 attempts were failures though. I struggle with the dough. May try your idea OP.

  20. My key for the dough is to oil the stone and sprinkle it with cornmeal.

    I roll my dough, anyone here toss it?
