    KennyG, thanks..hey it looks better here!! :-)
    For those that want to know, and those that really would rather are the ugly details.
    This one was short on cheese, at least it started out that way. Ever get half way into the prep, and discover your half balanced on the ingredients. That was me! And to make matters worse, what little mozzerella cheese I had in the zip bag, I lost about 1/3 on the floor before I noticed I had the bag upside down..Sheeesh.
    So I found some 5 cheese in the can, and I had some left over peppercorn round sandwich slices. Aha!! Green peppers, vidalia onions, canned sliced mushrooms, black olives, and some super sauce from the store, "Steff Gourmet Napoli Style" pizza sauce. A vunderbar sauce and I recommend it. It even has tomato chunks in it and a garlic seasoning.
    The globs you see in the photo, are the melted pepperjack slices.
    The crust was King Arthur Pizza dough, and I added for the directions salt, Lawreys garlic salt. Also a teaspoon or so of chives. And I used dough relaxer. As well as KA's dough seasonings. Makes a rather unique dough easy to handle and place on the peel for shaping. Next time I will add cheese to the dough prior to rolling it up and shaping the edges.
    When I knead the dough on the counter prior to rolling it out, I use whole wheat flour for dusting. Seems to work o.k.
    I used half the dough on this one, and saved enuff for anothe pizza tomorrow. I got cheese this evening..:-)
    Here is a tip for those that got this far..when you dress out your peel for the pizza dough with corn meal, don't be bashfull. Load it up. When you lay your thin pizza dough on the peel, do not press down on the main center..but roll up the edges of the dough and you can stretch the main part a bit to shape it. Then apply your sauce, your cheese and top with ingredients, and a bit more cheese on top. Don't overdue..just moderately. I have left over's to use tomorrow.
    Shake your peel when finished and the dough should still slide easily all over the peel with no effort. If you find a spot along the edges loosen it with a very thin knife and then shake the pizza peel again to assure a loose pizza. Then head to the hot preheated stone...I ran 500F solid cook from start to finish.
    Pizza is a easy to do cook...
    Cheer's to ya all...and I did clean up the floor from my cheese spill...Lucky wiffy was off to a concert..:-)
    BTW..this pizza was dang good! I will use the pepperjack again! As well as the sauce..! For a commercial sauce it is one of the better ones.[p]
