I wouldn't think so.

I just rub some olive oil on my cookie sheets.
Some day I have to buy a stone.

Okay, couldn't find a peel anywhere around here. What else can I use? DH isn't home yet, but, I'm gonna ask him if he has any new wood or metal that I can have to use as one, but, in case he doesn't, I'm at a loss as to what I can use to make the pizza on and then transfer it to the stone.

Texas, just make it on an oiled cookie sheet, you won't get it as big around but if your making two they should be about the size of a med store bought... I have a hearth kit that is a stone insert for the oven so I just put my dough on a pizza pan as I don't want the sauce, cheese, grease to get on the stone..A glass pizza pan works fine this way, plus I give the oven a spray of water from a spray bottle twice in the first 10 min of cooking..helps crisp up the crust.

I don't have a peel either. I make mine directly on the stone and it works just fine. I only cook mine for about 15 minutes though.

I'm excited, dough has risen and I'm fixin to punch it down!! I hope it taste good. I found a copycat recipe for Pizza Hut and I'm doing spinach alfredo. Hopefully, it'll turn out good. This may be a start of something good or bad. hehe

So, how did everyone's dinner turn out.
I ended up making 4 thin crusts. I really like the crust, thanks MJ.
I made one with sausage, candian bacon, pepperoni and mozzerella
one spinach alfredo, I didn't care for that one, gotta work on it so it taste like CiCi's
One with grilled chicken, salsa with the sauce and cheddar {next time I'm putting grilled red bells, even though dh doesn't like them.}
And one 1/2 canadian bacon and pineapple, 1/2 all meat.

It's only 7:00 p.m. here so dinner is not served yet. The dough is rising now and the pizzas are about to be rolled out. I have some marinaded sirloin steak, homemade tomato basil sauce and provolone and mozzarella cheeses. On another one, I'll add the kids' toppings: smoked ham, hard salami, sauce and lots and lots of mozzarella. I'm out of here now...got to run and finish cooking! Will be back after dinner to see who's on the virtual cafe. Anyone care to chat after dinner? White Zinfandel on hand? SEE YA SOON!

I did 2 with the same toppings (BLT) because that's what my husband & brother-in-law like best. And there is no pizza shop around here who makes anything like that. I used 2 different white sauces - the verdict is still out on which one they like best. :-) I served Zuppa Tuscana with it. They were happy!

Mmmmmmmm!

Wow my pizza turned out great! Just like my favorite pizzeria, more people should try doing this at home! I'm glad you liked that recipe Texasgirl, there are so many. I wonder if Alix burned her pizza again like she did last time?

Before with fresh mozzarella on top


After (it's half gone lol)



Nothing like homeade pizza+beer+football playoffs. I'm in heaven!
