First Pizza Cook.... almost awry
<p />Tonight we did our first pizza's. We used ready-mix dough, which was fine. The trouble was the packaging said it will do a 12" pizza. At 12" the dough was quite thin and wanted to stick rather bad to the mat we were using. It became apparent the dough wasn't moving from the mat to the paddle (and we already added the toppings). Now I started to feel bad that I couldnt even make pizza without messing it up, forget moving on the bigger things like ribs! My wife said the thought she saw where it should have been made right on the paddle... well ok... so what do we do with this one? We'll just add a few toppings and fold it over (still wanted to stick though) and call it a calzone! It was better than throwing it away in disgust.[p]The second try we made it right on the paddle (after adding a nice coating of corn meal to the paddle first). That did the trick! Made a couple pizza's like that without any problem.[p]The actual cooking on the egg itself went without a hitch. We just followed what we read here on the forum.[p]Except now we see why some people have two paddles... you need the extra for the next pizza being prepared.[p]So we cooked and learned and had fun with it.[p]Oh, and the "calzone"? Well, it turned out so good I am going to make it on purpose next time. :-)[p]-Boccie
