WHAT IF YOU COULD MAKE A PIZZA THAT WAS SO GOOD, YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY RAVED ABOUT IT FOR DAYS ON END?
HERE'S THE THING - YOU CAN
And you know what the best part is?
You don't even need any fancy pizza tools or crazy pizza skills to do it.
All you need is the kitchen tools you already have at home, the right recipe, and the right steps to take with consideration for your domestic oven (i.e not an oven that reaches 800°F).
Yes, you read that right. A traditional pizza oven usually gets to about 800°F or more.
I don't know about you, but my oven doesn't quite get that hot. And if it did, I don't know how I'd feel about that kind of heat pumping throughout my kitchen, ya dig?
Because our ovens don't go to that extreme, us home cooks need to make a few adjustments not commonly found amongst all the pizza tutorials out there.
Trust me, I know because I've tried them all. Ok, not all of them, but I definitely have tried quite a few. It always ended with the same results though - a pretty good pizza that left me wanting just a little bit more of out it.
For me, that wasn't good enough. I wanted to make a pizza at home that was better than just pretty good.
So, I took what I learned from those tutorials, threw out what didn't work, made a few adjustments through lots of trial and error, and now I can confidently say I make a damn good pizza at home using nothing but the standard kitchen tools I already have lying around.
This wasn't always the case though. Throughout my trial and error, I wound up with quite a few unsatisfying pizzas. Any of these sound familiar?
Kneading my dough became a huge mess - "..am I even doing this right??"
I struggled to stretch the dough evenly
The dough receded as I stretched it
I managed to stretch and top my pizza...but how the hell do I get it in the oven without mangling it?
My pizza tasted like cardboard, or sometimes a brick
My pizza just didn't have that crispy crust and chewy goodness you and I both crave
So yea, I've had my fair share of mediocre pizzas and struggles along the way. And let's face it, we all do. But at the end of the day, no one wants a mediocre pizza.
Now it's different though. Now I have friends and family asking me when the next pizza night is gonna be. And afterwards they seem to talk about how good it was for days on end.
Not only that, but sometimes I talk about how good it was for days on end. Why? Because the best pizza in the world is the one you make yourself.
I'm not saying all this to brag. I'm telling you this because you can make a damn good pizza too.
One that your friends, family, and even you will talk about for days on end - just long enough until you start thinking about that next pizza night.

HOW DO I KNOW IF THIIS IS FOR ME?
This course was specifically designed with the home cook in mind. Why? Because I'm a home cook too, and most other pizza tutorials out there either expect you to have all the fancy pizza tools or they leave you wanting more from your pizza (and not in the gimme-another-slice kind of way). This course may or may not be for you though, so read on and find the section below that you most identify with.

Throughout the course, I'll answer any of the specific questions you might have and do everything I can to step up your pizza game because there's nothing worse than mediocre pizza.
I make homemade pizza on the reg, yo -
There's always room for improvement, but it's hard to say if this will be the best course for you. This really comes down to how satisfied you are with your pizzas. Let's put it this way - do your friends or family rant and rave about how good it is? If not, you could probably learn a few things from this course.

I'm a seasoned pizzaiolo -
If you don't know what a pizzaiolo is, you're probably not one. If you are a pizzaiolo though, this course probably won't do much for you. If you're still looking to up your pizza game though, get in touch because I still may be able to help out.

Yes! You'll be given lifetime access, so if you need to revisit any part of the course for a refresher you can absolutely do so.
Do I need any specific tools to follow along with the course (e.g. a pizza stone)?
No, no special tools are required to follow along. If you have a pizza stone, then great! Use it. If not, it's no big deal. I'll show you how to make a delicious pizza without one using everyday kitchenware.

What if I've already made pizza before? Will I learn anything from this course?
This is more case-by-case. If you've only made pizza a handful of times, then you would definitely learn a few things by taking this course. If you're a seasoned pizza maker, then maybe not.

I want to make a round pizza. Why are yours all weirdly shaped?
Despite most of the images not being round pizzas, I can definitely teach you how to make a round pizza. The reason most of mine aren't round is because...well, why not? It's fun to experiment with different shapes. Here's a little secret about making a round pizza- the roundness of the pizza has more to do with how the dough is prepared, rather than how you stretch it. So my funky shapes you keep seeing were made using dough that wasn't prepared to be round. If you'd prefer it round, no worries - I'll show you how.
