I bought a 14″ aluminum pizza peel and was really wanting to use it. Made today the day.
The pie was just a tad too big for the peel and hung over the edges a bit, so despite a generous sprinkle of corn meal the pie didn’t want to slide off onto the stone. I finally convinced it to slide but got a bit of a wrinkle in the crust.
Oh well, it was a pretty nice build, nonetheless. I spread a smear of Awesome Sauce and laid down some sliced mozzarella. We went with three meats – ham, salami, and pepperoni. For veggies there were halved cherry tomatoes, sliced red onion, red and green bell peppers. I waited until the pie was out of the oven to grate on the Parmesan. And waited until Mrs J had removed her share before I added red pepper flakes and ground black peppercorns. This was a good pie. Not my best or prettiest, and the hitch with the new peel was a downer, but it was still a good pie. The dogs were crazy for the bones (the crusts).

Still looks amazing, even tho I’d loose the onion.
I would pay good money for this pizza.
No onions? Bummer. I forgot the olives! Left them sitting on the counter. Next pie will be smaller.
