I'm sure you said in one of your posts to strain the tomatoes before seasoning them. And if you didn't, I just assumed that was the way to do it :)

It's amazing how much liquid came out of the tomatoes -- both juice from the tomatoes and water. Unstrained tomatoes would DEFINITELY make a pizza soggy!!

Between you and your mom and your brother, you're solving all my problems in life!! ;)

my mom was horrified that i didn't specify that if you used tomatoes to strain them prior to seasoning...I felt like a 5 year old all over again! :)

It must've been the cheese that was making the pizzas soggy, like you said -- I put the same toppings on as I normally do (other than the cheese), and the soggy problem was pretty much solved.

I'll do some more experimenting next weekend with the piece of dough that I froze :) Can you tell I love pizza?!

Nope, no food poisoning -- just a busy weekend!! :)

I made the pizza on Saturday for supper, and.... just a smidgen of soggy on the crust, but only after it had been cut and sitting for a while :)

I don't have a paddle (but I do have a stone), so I started the cooking process on a pizza pan, and then slid it off the pan and directly onto the rack. Good thing I was in the room when it started to smoke -- I think it was too close to the bottom oven element!! It just got a little bit burned on one side.

I'm going to buy a paddle and try baking it on the stone next time. One of these days, I'll hopefully perfect the technique!!

Thanks again for the dough recipe, and for all your tips and suggestions :)

By the way, I've got a great cooked tomato sauce recipe -- I'll post it for you if you're interested.
