Hi Albert,
I am 70 years old and never cooked anything in my life except make toast and coffee in the morning. My wife says I burn water. We used to buy a pie every Friday from a fellow here in Yonkers. He retired and we can't find a good pie like he used to make. So I decided to make my own. I watched you videos and others. So I figured I give it a try.

The oven we have has a fan and a heating element on the top. Is that a problem? A regular pizza ovens heat comes from the bottom.

I made the dough the day before and for my first sauce I bought a jar of pizza sauce.

I let the dough rise twice. I stretched the dough out to make about a 14" pie. I put the dough on a pizza screen. Then I put the pizza sauce on and put grated mozzarella cheese on top.

Preheated the oven to 425 and put the screen with the pie in about half way up.

The cheese and sauce started bubbling before the crust got brown.

It wasn't too bad...

The next time I'll try a pizza stone and preheat to about 450-475. I'll put the stone a little lower. I like a crisp crust. Hopfully I'll get better at making pizza.

My oven probably will burn the cheese before the crust get brown. Will the stone help cook the pie more evenly?

I'll let you know how the next one come out...☺...Thank again...
Bob
