Well, for starters there's pineapple on that thing.
I had a Papa Johns the other day it was devastatingly shit and dry.
National Pizza Day | 9th February 2018
I think that pizza is on the menu tomorrow
I've found a pizza recipe that is working really well for me which I got from a pizza chef in a restaurant -
500g "00" flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon yeast powder
large glug of olive oil
320ml warm water (EDIT!)
(This is enough dough to make 3 large pizza bases)
I mix it up with the dough hook attachment to my hand mixer for about 5 mins until thoroughly combined (although was told to do it by hand)
Leave somewhere warm to rise for an hour or more, knock it back down and then leave in the fridge (as it's much easier to work with once it's cold)
More water then flour? I've not had loads of success making dough I can handle and mine has loads less water!
I'm not sure you can use set measures for flour and water.
Its too changeable.
I've found that a year of trial and error is the only way to get a feel for it.
oops. thats for making double measures - should be about 300ml... doh! (dough!)

That's less water than flour, 320 ml weighs 320 grams.
Ah, I see the poster you quoted had made a mistake
Maybe today is the day to test Wetherspoons pizza offering?
I didn't even know they did Pizza! Thread deserves pics if you do.
Are you volunteering?
my rule of thumb: one glass of water (250ml) mixed with enough flour to give it the right pizza-dough-consistency gives just about enough dough for two baking trays for 2 thin(ish) based pizzas.
Do you bake them first? My last attempt they were pretty uncooked, despite the toppings starting to burn. This was as thin as I could get them as well.
nah, all in together. very short in a very hot oven.
Ah. Maybe I need a stone. The oven was stupidly hot.
How hot is stupidly hot? My oven goes up to gas mark 9 which is about 250 degrees celcius. Commercial pizza ovens cook at around 450 degrees. A stone or steel will help a lot with getting the crust cooked through.
electric oven here, i just put it on full whack, says 220. takes about 10 mins for a pizza.
Read a review and decided against it.
Apparently they tend to turn up a bit cold. Wetherspoons food is often a bit luke warm
What is it with these sick bastards?
My oven thermometer claims 250, so pretty warm. Just need to keep playing I guess.
I love pineapple on pizza. Will be having a veggie pizza later with added pineapple.
Tbf I didn't know that you could microwave or fry pizza, which I think is how they do everything else.
Glasgow chip shops do deep fried pizza. Can even be battered. Half pizza supper is common. Supper means comes with chips.
Deep fried pizza is on my to eat list.
I bought one today. It was ok, but could have done with better quality ingredients tbh.
Also they don't do a veggie one, so I bought the pepperoni one and took the meat off.
