Pizza 360 - How to make great dough to market a great pizza with expert ...

Peter talks about how to make pizza.

This is a great video about emphasizing the importance of the crust. The crust is the most important thing about making pizza. The crust should always shine through when you make pizza. While this video is geared toward the pizza professional, there are many great ideas for the home pizza chef.

As Peter has explained to me there are only 2 types of pizza: "Good Pizza and Great Pizza". We are always on a quest to make great pizza.

Peter refers to his book: American Pie

7 Top Tips for Making Pizza at Home | Homemade Pizza

Here is a great video which gives some wonderful tips about making your own home-made pizza.

According to the video creator:
All right. So in Italy guys, pizza is every day. It's not something we're going to home make for a special occasion or because they have an empty Sunday afternoon. They do it every day because it's that approachable. It's that easy.
If you think about the dough, all you need is flour, water, which I know 90 percent of you already have at home, and then a 79 cent packet of yeast. That's how fast the flour comes together, with the yeast, the water, and it makes a homemade dough that's just so much better than buying it anywhere else.
I think the advice here is very sound for anyone who is making pizza for the first time. If you have not worked with dough before you may want to start using a rolling pin (Click on this link to discover rolling pins). However, once you have some experience with handling dough you may find that you can just shape the dough with your hands. Using a rolling pin will de-gas the dough. Shaping the dough by hand takes a little practice and the more you shape the dough by hand the easier it will be to handle.

The biggest take away from this video for me is that you can make great pizza at home.

This is a wonderful video about making incredible pizza at home...Here is a description from

Vincenzos Plate (Click on link for his channel)

This Neapolitan Pizza Dough can be used to make pizza bases, calzone and also different types of bread.
Pizza was born in Naples and Neapolitan Pizza is the Queen of all pizzas. The pizza dough must be kneaded by hand or with a very very low-speed mixer. I love making my Napoletana Pizza dough using my hand.
Big thans to my great friend Enzo Guarino from Casa e Cucina for sharing his family Pizza Dough recipe with us.
Homemade Pizza is perfect for a dinner party.

I just wanted to take a moment to wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving. Here in the USA, Thanksgiving is a time to spend with friends and family. I hope you have a very restful and wonderful Thanksgiving.

I am very thankful for many things. I have a wonderful family.
I am thankful to you for reading my blog posts.... I am also thankful for all of your support over the years.
And I am thankful I can enjoy my favorite food, pizza!

This is an extraordinary video about Dom Demarco that I wanted to share with you.
He is one of the living legends of pizza. He is in his 80's and he still has passion for making pizza.

Dom has had many offers from people who want to buy him out. They offered him a lot of money. But he says no.There is no amount of money that he would accept.

Dom is committed to making pizza, because he loves making pizza for people! He is my hero!

You can read the post here:

I'll include a link to a video I shot while visiting DiFara's. This shows Dom making pizza.

Have a blessed wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends.

If you are doing any on-line shopping I would greatly appreciate you thinking of Pizza Therapy as you do your shopping.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday. As my friend used to say::

"Moderation in all things, but most importantly moderation in moderation!"

I am not really sure what he meant but basically, do what ever you want. Just be careful.
