How does my pizza look?



ok first of all I know it's not round lol I'm still working on that. My goal is to make something that has bubbly edge and looks like authentic neapolitan pizza. does this one look remotely close?

Looks great! Mine don't come out round all the time either. I think it adds to that home-made quality.

1. 66% hydration
2. I portioned the dough before rising and let them rise in individual containers
3. after rising when I shape the dough into pizza, I tried to handle it carefully not to deflate the bubbles

It looks like if you set a piece down in front of me you'd get to see my disappearing pizza slice magic trick. Just don't ask me to make it reappear.
