Best Pizza Yet

I've cooked hundreds of pizzas on my egg in the past year and a half. Tonight all of the stars aligned for the perfect dough and pizza.

    Looks great.  Nice when it all comes together.

    It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.

    @HawkeyeEgghead yes I do make my own dough.
    The cook was done at 550, plate setter legs down with stone raised by 1/2" plumbing tees.

    Dough recipe is based on the recipe from the bge cookbook.
    Add 1 tsp yeast and 1 tsp sugar to 1 cup of hot water. Let stand for 5 minutes.

    Add 3 cups flour to bowl. Add 1tsp salt. Add yeast mixture to mixer and mix with dough hook until ingredients are mixed. Add 1tsp olive oil and continue mixing. Add water as necessary so dough is in a ball, but sticking slightly to the bowl. Knees in mixed for 5 minutes.

    Place in oiled bowl and cover with oiled plastic wrap. Let rise for a minimum of 1.5 hours. Mine rose for 5 hours.

    I usually split this to make two thin crust pies. Today I made one big ass pie which gave me the thicker crust.
