    We buy dominoes or make them, making them is a lot cheaper but I can never get a good cooked base, I think we need a pizza stone or oven

    Default Re: Worst pizza stories?

    If you are making them yourself put a bit of Polenta on the bench when you roll out the dough, and get one if the aerated pans. Also cook in a really hot pre heated oven, like 250-270 degrees.

    And when you do get a bad pizza spare a thought for the 15 year old kids who are coping incredibly well in a high pressure situation trying to knock out anywhere upwards of 120 pizzas every half hour. And there is usually only 3 of then on a make bench, a busy Friday night can easily get up to 300 pizzas per half hour, for around 2 hours. Its hard and they do an incredible job.

    I'll try the polenta thing, I usually use flour when I roll them out..do you mean use polenta just how I use the flour (sorry to ask what seems like an obvious question lol!). I do have an aerated pan, one with holes in it, and I always preheat the oven to as high as it will go

    And wow that does seem really intense! I've only had positive experiences with my local dominoes, if they make it wrong they bring me 2 pizzas, the wrong one and the right one! Only once have they bought me an incorrect pizza and I got a credit for it but didn't ask them to replace it as I was starving and it was late at night, they forgot the anchovies

    Yep, just use the Polenta instead of flour, or do a mix with half flour half Polenta.

    It really is intense, I started there when I was 15 and worked there for 5.5 years, finishing as a store manager. The managers are well overworked and under paid but the makers really are generally amazing young people. When I moved on into big box retail I never hesitated to hire someone who had experience working in a pizza store cause I knew they could handle pressure, work as a team and had a million other good qualities.

    Default Worst pizza stories?

    I find semolina works the best - I sprinkle it in the pan before putting the base on and over the dough before I roll it out

    Default Worst pizza stories?

    We've only got Eagle Boys here. Over priced, extremely poor service and rubbish pizzas! We make our own now, they're really easy, and we get them with what we want, and hot too!

    Default Worst pizza stories?

    Crust is so great. I sadly moved house and now we are to far out of the delivery area. Such a shame, so damn delicious.

    The Pizza Hut in this area is not bad. Dominos we have had the odd one or two burned pizza.
    And was an hour late as he couldn't find our house, and accused us of giving them the wrong contact number..
