My wife is Italian, as in born in, raised in, and married her in Italy. She likes pizza, a lot! So I decided I would have to learn to make good pizza. I have perfected my technique, here is the result.bf86b73e81510a2f8f188a58adae3258.jpg

Italian style pizza generally focuses on perfect crust and accentuates only a few ingredients. Often it is tomato slices or pepper slices and chunks of cheese rather than shreds. It wasn't until pizza came to the states it got doctored up and topping heavy. Personally I am with lee I like a lot of meat and veggies on mine with less crust. I do enjoy an authentic Italian pie every once in a while if I end up somewhere that can do it correctly. They are few and far between though in my experience.

Just like everything Americans eat we cover that shit in cheese! I can't eat the all that crust myself. I have gastric bypass and that amount of crust would kill me. The more toppings and sauce and topping and less crust the better.

The older I get the less crust I like. When I was a kid I wanted that super thick crust and now I prefer the super thin and crispy. I don't know how much healthier thin is but I like to believe it makes it better for me so I don't feel so bad about that one extra slice.

What's amazing about this dough is that although it seems like a lot of dough it isn't, it's just puffy and keeps all the ingredients on the pizza and not spilled in the oven. I had toss each one so that it's thick on the out side and thin in the middle. Because I do it by hand and sometimes the dough is different it can be more thin or more thick. All I know is my wife doesn't make me take her out for a 20 pizza anymore!
