Yeah, sometimes I make my own pizza, but it isn't as good as a pizzeria's. :sob:

I've never tried to make the dough myself....   I think it may be quite difficult!

You might actually find making the dough is easier than you think, especially if you have a KitchenAid or similar mechanical mixing device. Even so, the recipe is usually quite basic (flour, yeast, oil, salt, warm water) and requires not much more than mixing / kneading and then being left to rise. And it tastes sooooooo much better than a pre-made partially cooked base you might buy at your supermarket.

Anyway, the dough by my supermarket is handmade every two hours and it's really good. That supermarket has fresh bakery and pastry made by them.

I dont think Ive further pursused how fresh the dough being used at my grocery store is, but Ill inquire. Though being only a six minute walk from a pizza store makes going there a terrific draw

Our village has still a baking house and we heat it from time to time. Yesterday was such a day. When the wood is nearly burned down it is pushed to the back. To check the heat for the bread baking a small cookie from bread dough is used. It is baken while there are still flames. It is layed wirh bacon, leech, onions, sour cream, ...  

The German name is Flammkuchen (flame cookie), French variant is tarte flambee and in our slang it has several names, depending on what is layed on. I prefer to use onions, greenback and Handkäse for my very special Zwiwwelblootz. Zwiwwel is our word for Zwiebel (onion) and a blootz is a sort of a plate.

So not a real Pizza, but since tomato, basilicum , Frutti die mare, Salami were not used at our place a century ago it is as close as it can get.

And sorry to all the Italians who are proud for their Pizza skills. Nothing beats the taste of a Zwiweelblootz. because it is not only the taste which counts. It is the togetherness of the Village. Kids collect Wood, men heat the oven, women do the dough, lot of laughing and talking while waiting. All this adds mentally to the taste. 

Bet you can get the same feeling with a Pizza. But the statutes of the baking house club says only recipes from the region ;)

The celestial taste of a Pizza (A true Neapolitan Pizza) is  hard to beat, but I'm curious  of that Zwiweelblootz because, looking at the picture, it looks very good!

The best Pizza I ever ate was in Florence, in a small restaurant called "Nome" I'll never forget that deliciousness!

What about your best Pizza ever?

Flying to London City airport from Schiphol airport in a few minutes, grabbed a surprisingly good bit of pizza as dinner. I know where I’ll be getting food next time we’ll be flying from Schiphol :D
