  • I’m loving this series but I can’t help but scream “just blow under it!!” at my phone while everyone butchers their pies trying to get them on the peel. You literally just lift the edge and blow under the blank, trapping an air bubble that will lift the pie just enough to allow easy movement when transferred off the board. Crucial but little-known pro-tip.

    Jordan MarrsJordan Marrs2 days ago
  • I really like the series, but I just gotta say.. not enough toppings and a heavy bias towards toppings. Toppings are very subjective, so I understand you gotta just choose a few to make an episode, but they leaned heavily towards mortadella, and maybe mushrooms. Like others are saying: prosciutto, salami, pepperoni, so many other veggies, etc.
