Great looking pizzas from everyone!
We recently had a pizza party, and made about 6 pizzas!
I find that corn meal works best when coating the pizza pan, and also gives it a nice texture. If you use an oil, the dough tends to stick to the pan.
I find that the key to making a good pizza is to distribute everything evenly. This can't be stressed enough. This ensures that every piece is good. It can cause other problems as well. For instance, if there are streaks in the sauce, the pizza may burn in that area.
Once the sauce is on the pizza, the weight of it will let you stretch out the pizza a bit to get it to the edges, if you were off a little bit.
I usually make my pizzas in layers. Dough, bit of cheese, toppings, more cheese.
I also use a combination of brick and mozzerella cheese. About 2/3 mozzerella. This gives it a great flavor, in my opinion.
One of my favorite pizzas to make is a greek pizza, with spinach, olives, feta cheese and tomatoes. I didn't get any finished pictures of it, unfortunately.
