“I experimented with Trader Joe's refrigerated pizza dough. It was very easy to work with, so much so that I suspect that it's made with AP flour instead of higher gluten bread flour. It didn't have as much chew, oven spring, or flavor as cold fermented homemade, but it's certainly a bargain and worth considering if you want to make a pie on a whim and didn't plan ahead with the dough. Baked for about five minutes at 550F on a Lodge cast iron pan; topped with a sauce of pureed TJ's plum tomatoes, fresh oregano, basil, and garlic; pepperoni, sausage, and bell peppers. Cheaper than a frozen and a much tastier option for homemade pizza made on short notice with not too much effort.” —Mark E.

Baked on a 600 degree baking steel under the broiler for about 8 minutes then splashed with balsamic. The dough was in the fridge for about 30 hours, then on the counter for another hour or so before baking.” —BrandtBL

“Taleggio, mozzarella, double cream and a heavy hand of pepper from Roberta's, mixed with pancetta and Brussels sprouts inspired by Motorino. Dough 60% hydration, 00 flour and 24-hour bulk bench rise with an 8-hour balled rise. Done in my hacked kettle barbecue for 115 seconds.” —Rockyraccoon82

Okaru’s Mushroom and Green Garlic Pie
Okaru’s Mushroom and Green Garlic Pie

“Second try with the Kettle Pizza setup. The first was a disaster. This time, the bottom stuck to the peel a bit (hence the odd shape) then charred too much, but the top wasn't done enough even after doming. Deck temp got to 600+. Kenji's Neapolitan crust, but with sourdough starter instead of yeast. San Marzano tomatoes food processed with a little salt and pepper. Fresh mozzarella. Topped with lion's mane mushrooms and sliced green garlic.” —Okaru
