    This one very good, the first one last night had an odd after taste. I think it may have been caused by my egg "burning clean from the high heat". Tonite after last nights attempt it was much cleaner so no odd taste. I also made 3 personal pizza's from store bought crust which also tuned out well .

    This one was only about 475 F for about 7 to 8 minutes, spun it around once half way through. I hadn't read anything about burning the egg clean before pizza but it seems to have improved the pizza taste a bunch ! Crust is from the recipe shared on this forum a while back, Antimo OO flour, water , yeast and salt. Sat in the refrigerator for 2 days, very good,but a warning the dough is very sticky !

    If you're using caputo you can knock the hydration down as far as 56%. That would really help to alleviate some of the stickiness.

    Wet dough will not stick to wet fingers. This is good to know when removing the dough from the original mixing container. I like to keep a bowl of water nearby when manipulating the dough.

    Sprinkling the dough and work surface with flour will prevent stickiness when shaping it.

    This is very true, and I definitely prefer wet hands to oiled hands.
