I didn't find a thread in here where this topic was discussed so I thought I would start one. I have been dreaming for a long-time about learning how to make my own pizza, but was always skeptical because I have never used yeast. Well, I took the plunge today and I am very happy with my results. For dough, I was going to use Jim Lahey's recipe but I couldn't find the brand of yeast he recommended. Instead, I found a yeast at Kroger that was specifically made for pizza dough so I used the directions on that. My other toppings were shredded mozzarella, mushrooms, spinach and onions. Topped the whole thing off with a light drizzle of EVOO. Anyway, I figured that there were more people here that are far more advanced and could share their experiences. I am particularly interested in a great dough recipe, cooking equipment and your favorite premium ingredients.
