    The REAL TRICK is to make them ON the peel. You've got to be really clean about where you put your flour, but then you don't have to worry about messing up the shape of the pizza before it's cooked.

    @Claire, How long can the dough be stored? After the 24 hour rising, can it be frozen for future use or will that negatively affect the taste and texture?

    Claire, I would love to meet you, and have a date night where I make the main course for you for dinner, and you make one of your fabulous deserts!! I think you would enjoy my cooking, plus I could get pointers from you, and I know I would love your dish!! But it’s only a dream I have.... I’m to far south from NY, (I’m in NC). O well, I love the videos!!
