Cornmeal Makes A Crunchy Pizza

And that's a GOOD thing! Thank you to the ladies that responded to my archaeologist post and pointed me in the right direction! ;) CORNMEAL is what gets the pizza dough sliding right off the pan and onto the hot pizza stone.


Ever since i wrote that post, i've come across like a million and one pizza peels. And guess what people, they are HUGE. I'm a gadgety cook, i love me some cooking gadgets, but condo living doesn't really lend itself to too much storage space, and when i saw the size of the pizza peel, i thought where the hell am i going to store that?!

We continue to use the sturdy cardboard method of transporting the pizza. We tried the suggested cookie sheet method, but to my husband's dismay, the pizza isn't the same size or shape as the cookie sheet. lol. But with the cornmeal sprinkled on the cardboard, the pizza dough slides right off with no problems, AND it leaves the crust nice and crunchy.

Mario the Baker makes a damn good pizza any day, but on this particular day, we wanted to make one. So i popped on in, and for the bargain basement price of a $1 for a medium pizza dough and $2 for a large, i picked up a couple balls of dough, called my brother and had him over for some (semi)homemade pizza! And it was GOOD too, YAY CORNMEAL! ;)
