    sorry, but fewsmall mistakes here and there. but hey if a pizza comes out, and is tasty, all good!
    My 2 cents suggestions/tips for who wants to achieve better results at home:
    - never put yest with salt directly together. Depends on so many factors, as quantity etc but salt might risk to "break down" the yeast and stop or slow/decrease the effect of the lievitation. Ofc many times nothing happen, but is reccomended not to, so if you have to waste ingridients and time, go on the safe side and melt the salt in a cup of water before :)
    - add sugar at the end of the mixture process. It gives color to the crost and it helps the yeast
    - you should work the dough for 10-15 minutes, in order to activate the gluten and make it resistant (not breaking down), and to trap air inside, in order to make it puffy when it cooks
    - the long fermantion "rest" is important in order to break down various things, such as sugar, protein, fat etc which makes the dough harder/elastic and more difficult to flat down and digest.
    - don't blend tomato, you just destroyt them. Put them in a dough and squeez them a little bit by hands. dont even cook it. Just add few basil leaf, oil, salt and you will taste a fresh tomato sauce like you never tasted before

    Having worked my college years at a Domino's, watching this pie be formed hurt my soul.
    Get the dough into a thick, round "patty" (for lack better word). Hands together, push down into it about 1/2" or a little more from the edge. Work all the way around the patty doing the same. This will form a crust. Once completed, gently push your fingers into the patty to flatten it out a little bit.
    Now slap it out. For the mechanics, try this: imagine holding your hands out, palms up. Then turn one palm over, place on top of the other and drag it up your arm. Repeat with the other hand. This is motion you'll use to slap the dough out. You can practice this technique using a rag or dishtowel as your dough.
    After a few slaps and the dough is roughly where u want it, put the dough on the backsides of your hand and flip it down on table. Now you can adjust and form it into your round pie, and voila!
    Also, a crucial mistake was made on the calzone, when Babish didn't score the top to allow steam to escape.

    I saw one of your videos where the pan caught fire with the wooden spoon and you said that wood was very flammable. So y doesn’t that happen to the wood pizza stone? Because it’s not an open flame? Also, how come you don’t have to make holes in the calzone the way you do in pastry turnovers for the heat to escape? Is it the bread flour tha5 makes a difference? Thx for ur help. I’m excited to continue learning how to cook! 👩‍🍳

    Love your channel but as someone from an Italian family I was very unhappy seeing what could have been an amazing sauce go into a blender. Next time crush the tomato by hand or get strained tomatoes so you don't end up with the ugly orange sauce. And basil goes towards the end or after the pizza is done so it doesn't shrivel and burn

    Why don’t you proof the yeast in water/flour/sugar slurry before proofing? I’ve seen some other no knead videos that do that but curious as to why you do not. I had a bad batch of yeast once so I do that now to make sure.

    Stumbled accross random youtobe cooking video. Now the secret of a GOOD pizza is the dough. And as a baker I was genuinly supprised, that you got it wright. Many Methods and Doughs will work, but the best Pizzas has one thing in common: Long fermentation. You could add extra flavour by adding yeast sponges (Biga or Poolish) and cold long time fermentation over a couple of days...But bloody hell, this seems like a good dough for that purpose!
    But what I would highly suggest ist stretching and folding. Just fold the dough a couple of times, maybe 2-3 times in the first couple of hours. Because it doesn't seem like the gluten structure was fully there when you worked with. Stretchin and folding will do this job - and takes like 10 seconds to do :)
    Oh and other then that... Nice ingredients, nicly prepared... GREAT Pizza.
    But still genuninly supprised you got a (very likely) nice tasting dough. Unfortunately, most people on TV and youtube get this horribly wrong, which hurts my bakers soul. Really thank you for that! Not that I'd care for myself, because I am capable of making good doughs... But for anyone that tries this! This is not the typicall shitty put flour water salt and 10 tons of yeast and bake it within an hour bullshit. Really thank you!
    For anyone trying to make Pizza at home: If you wanna have a delicious Pizza... Go ahead. this will come out very very very good.

    Sad fact my favourite cheese (because I only know like 7 different cheeses) doesn't melt no matter what I try to do with it. Parmegiano Regiano (fancy and way more expensive version of Parmesan)...pretty sure most of the cheeses I know aren't a thing in the US because I never heard someone talk about Edam, Tilsit, Gouda (well yes thats basically the most common cheese on the planet), Mozarella, Camenbert, Haloumi which isnt cheese but ok, Emmental and Feta cheese.

    For the calzone: Instead of extra virgin olive oil, brush it down with garlic butter and grate a little bit of parmasean in top, as well as addinv a little bit of oregano. It will taste like the lovechild of garlic bread and a pizza
