    Rule #33, Eggers appreciate hearing about fails as much as successes, because we learn from them.

    I find pizza is more about learning the dough. I've experimented with 3 or 4 different ones. I've made some really good pizza, but had what my grade 5 students would call, an "epic fail". I used the @Zippylip recipe and stretched the dough too thin and when I went out to remove the parchment and turn it half way through the cook, it tore a bit. I let it finish, but trying to take it off, everything but the outer crust stayed slopped all over my stone. After a few choice words, and a stiff drink, I was somewhat thankful I made 2 pies that night and one was semi-edible. With the dough I had left over I attempted again for lunch the next day, and it turned out amazing. Best pizza I've made yet.

    If there's one thing I've learned, every fail, results in a learning experience to succeed the next time.
