Where do you live? I am at sea level on the Carolina Coast. I had to learn to make dough to suit the environment. I know I come off as a know it all, however, pizza is my forte and I have very few peers when it come to my pizza knowledge base. I am 62 years old and I have spent a lifetime perfecting recipes that were passed down from the generations in my family. I am First Generation Italian American. All my people were born there. Food plays a central part in our culture and we like to incorporate our homemade foods in most of our meals. For Thanksgiving turkey and the trimmings were one course. The main course was usually lasagna, followed by a meat course, roasted potatoes, green beans sauteed in olive oil with garlic and slivered almonds, roasted homemade Italian sausage, fruits, nuts, and Italian pastries.
So, this is what you are dealing with. Some of my childhood friends, who are still my friends today are Lebanese, Greek, German, Polish, Armenian.
