First pizza

Been wanting to do this but haven't had the energy or time to learn dough. Today we were at publix and I found they have raw dough balls in the bakery section. Woohoo!
It turned out well except I didn't realize how thick it'd grow. Holy crap. It must have been 2" thick. I also now see the need for a pizza slider thingy. In the end it was still better than any frozen pizza. image

    Looks real good. If it was a 16 oz dough ball they can be stretched out to 16 inches for a thinner pie. Also if you didn't let sit at room temp for a couple hours before stretching.
  • Publix always has the dough. Just like somkyj said,,,,,let it sit out at room temp for a while. It says to do that on the label

    Yes I read that, I let it sit maybe an hour. I guess next time I'll do longer. Glad to hear the dough is always there though. Pizza will become a regular cook now!

    Looks great, I can never get the top of mine to finish to the desired finish without the bottom burning.  Looks like you nailed it.

    Looks real good especially for a first time. What temp did you bake at and how long? Try making dough yourself. IMHO you'll like it better. Lots of good and simple recipes here and other places. I love doing pizzas. And definitely invest in a pizza peel (it's a must have).
