    john.. i did not use a machine,,, i got the recipe off the internet... very simple.. one cup of flour, 1 tsp,yeast,1/2 tsp of salt, 1 tsp of olive oil. and about 1/3 cup of water. put all this in oiled bowl, mix up with spoon until you can get this into a ball. let rest in warm place for two hrs. push down dough.. then i put in frig for 24 hrs. use floured hands and more flour if needed. make a dough ball and then spread out on oiled pizza pan. i am not a expert by any means. but this worked for me..

    How's the salsa? Sounds like that could be good with pizza

    I was making my own and then started buying the fresh dough balls at the bakery at Wal-mart wheat and white and got the same results. My dough didn't spread very well and when I cooked it on the Egg, it would raise and be super thick. Don't get me wrong, everyone loves it but don't ever get a thinner crust.

    Great looking pie.

    So salsa instead of sauce, or with the sauce? I agree with that the Texas pickles (if he means japelenos by that) would make a nice addition to your pie.
