    Mortadella: chip into centimeter by half centimeter by 3mm thick long pointy 4 side shards then sprinkle instead of cube chunks... take out any pistachio and replace with rolling pin cracked pignoli.

    I’m surprised how long it took everyone to figure out assembling on the peel. Also, no one ever tested using different flours on the bottom, adds nice texture and acts like ball bearings. I use caputo semolina di grano but fine ground corn meal works well too. Plus wooden peels are for sending and metal for retrieving

    Y’all almost lost me at gremolata on the pizza, but I made it this Baby Bella’s. I thought y’all were doing the best version of normal pizzas. And don’t y’all learn anything?? Wooden peel for going in, metal for taking out...

    The best pizza 🍕 is in Louisiana, at a little place called Johnnys Pizza House!!!! It’s a small chain, mostly in Northeast Louisiana!!!! Their pizza will blow you away time and time again, I grew up eating their pizza so maybe I’m a little bit bias but, many people in Louisiana will tell you the same!!!! There’s nothing really fancy about the pizza or the locations, it’s just consistently good pizza!!!! If you’re ever in northeast Louisiana hit ‘em up for some GREAT pizza!!!!🍕🍕🍕🍕

    It was crucial for the team to shoot Chris down on pineapple anything on pizza. Same goes with apples too. Sweet is not a complimentary flavor to salty, sour and/or savory in Italian cuisine. And Italian is all about paired flavors.
    The sweetest you'll see Italian go for Pizza is a cherry tomato, and that's a compromise I can accept.

    Why don't they just put flour on the pizza peel and make the pizza on that. Then all you have to is slide it into the oven.
    *Edit nevermind they did that immediately after.

    I’m now 4 videos in, and to watch the entire BA staff fail so miserably at getting pizza onto a peel and into the oven is the most frustrating thing I’ve ever watched on TheXvid. Just use MORE flour, and PULL the pizza onto the peel! It’s NOT THAT HARD. I wanted to put my head through a wall by the time I watched this video. Geez Louise!
