    I've had hit and miss success. Let us know what you did. Maybe we can help.

    Buy a dough ball from publix oil a skillet and plop the dough in it. Push it out and dress it. Cook around 500 for 20-25 mins. Can't get much easier.

    Chubbs nailed it. We buy our dough from whole foods if we are short on time. Roll it out thin on cornmeal dusted parchment. Dress, hit the well pre-heated pizza stone, pull the parchment after 7 minutes or so, let it roll til everything is golden brown. Molto bene.

    Homemade dough
    .. 4 ingredients. Flour, salt, oil, water, yeast, sugar.

    OK that's 6.

    Plenty of great dough recipes out there. The flat bread was your first mistake.

    Once you nail pizza at home, you'll never want to pay for pie at 90% of the restaurants out there.

    So you have a stand mixer or food processor?

    I just traded my Kitchen Aid pro 600 for a Breville. It looks like I made the right choice so far. 

    I also got a 11.75 in Le Creuset frying pan. WOOP WOOP

    Smaller, MUCH LIGHTER, the head tilts instead of the damn bowl lift, the controls are digital instead of analog, the head locks in the up position, the attachments are superior, it looks better.

    If you buy from Bed Bath and Beyond, you can take it back anytime for any reason. No questions asked.

    It's all about the dough, bro. My guess is you are using different dough (store bought) for all your cooks. Highly recommend making fresh or picking one store bought that works (if you find one let me know). I've recent done 2 mass pizza cooks where everyone wanted to do their own dough. I butchered the dough that I wasn't used to. Mine cooks at 600-650, theirs burned at 500 and was raw on the top. Pick a lane and stick with it.

    It sounds like he's using already baked flat bread.

    I watched Fred's BBQand music video on pizza on Youtube. He gives perfect instruction. I cooked my first pizza this Wednesday using Publix Pizza dough, homemade pizza sauce, goat cheese and banana peppers..It was by far the best pizza I've ever had...check out the video.

    If you are using already baked crusts bump that temp down to 375*  Do it all the time for a quick batch of pizzas for the kids using precooked crusts bought at the store.  10 minutes or less. If you are actually using raw dough, you have to find what works for you and your egg.

    Hard to be suicidal when you are already dead. It was empty.

    Wish I had the money to have that kind of drink when I was flying. Granted, I only fly once every five years.
