How to shape a dough ball... 

How to shape the pizza... 

When I do mine in the egg, I use this setup. The temp changes depending on the style, but always... platesetter, legs down and something to raise the pizza stone about 4", then the stone.

If you haven't, give it a try. You'll be glad you did.

    I love making homemade pies. I really want to learn how to do the one handed twirl like he did in the video. That would be awesome.

    Carolina I know you have touted the 30 min rise scratch dough. I've done it before but here's tonights. 30 mins from scratch.very possible . let it rise while the egg gets to temp and settles.
