    Disregarded truffle for the price, the potency, etc...? Or is it more of a white sauce or no sauce thing?

          I really love everything you guys did in this episode, but I wish you guys would do a "average Joe's" version with the kind of toppings most people actually get on their pizzas. Not saying yours isn't good, I've just never had anything like that and I think it would be cool if you kept the dough and cheese and just did regular pizza toppings that you'd see around i.e. combination, supreme, sweet & spicy, etc.. the great part would be that it would follow the theme of Clair's videos about making gourmet versions of crap foods.

            NOBODY puts anchovies on after. I just can't believe that was even a thought. 🙄

              Molly is highly opinionated about her toppings. But I mean who isn't ?
              They didn't work a lot on veggie pizza. Mushroom shouldn't be the top representative for veggie pizza

                        Jesus christ. All this looking into the perfect ingredients and no one bothered looking into how to actually put the pizza on the peel properly.

                                              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

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!!!!🍕🍕🍕🍕
