Is this the new GJ Fragrance Thread? Either way, I'm all for it. This is the content I'm looking for!

Love Neapolitan style pizza but would take a top notch NY slice or pie over Italian any day

These are two good pizzas I had outside:

That is my favourite style pizza, the thin italian one.
This is the pizza I make at home in my crappy oven at max (250C) temperature:


I think it could be way better in one of those pizza stoves and I‘m torn between buying one of those or a more powerful oven.
I have a pizza stone for my Weber gas grill but baking a bigger amount of pizza and letting the stone heat up is too much hassle.

I have a Kitchenaid machine for kneading the dough and I can recommend letting it massage the dough for at least 20 minutes. It improves the taste by a lot.

Pizza Pilgrims Frying Pan Pizza Kits
Margheritax2 £15, N'dujax2 £17.50 plus £5 P&P

Stretch the dough out, stick it in a frying pan, add their sauce and cheese, cook on the hob for a couple of minutes to brown the base and then finish under the grill to cook the top.

Would be good to see a comparison with an Ooni pizza.

As an all rounder I’d recommend the Ooni Koda 16.

I've tried that from Sainsbury's before but found it shite, dunno if it's different cos they call it pasta flour though?

Is the smaller gas a better option ? Just going to be cooking the odd pizza, not sure I’d need the monster one.

If you want to be professional you can grab a infrared thermometer gun to ensure the Stone is at 900+ degrees and ready to cook. I’ve never bothered with one (Just turn on full whack and leave it 15 mins) but everyone in the vids seems to.

Some large sealable plastic tubs for proofing dough are also a good idea.
