IMO.... no Bud, wine, wine, wine; 550 too hot; more cheese, smaller toppings; other than that looks delicious to me!
How old is the flour you used, perhaps it has lost it's fluxie?

Alan, simple is good too.
Batching tonight so thick pork chops cooked slow. After just about done, add good ol cream of mushroom soup, a couple of crushed or chopped garlic cloves, perhaps a chopped spring onion. Mashed potato's and panned fried mushrooms. A bit of shrubbery in a bowl and copious amounts of red wine.....

Dogs had kibble...

We have an old friend who is in his 80's. He lives alone and is on a very limited income. We freeze our leftovers in meal size containers and give them to him.
If I agreed with you then we would both be wrong!

Threw it in the sink and turned the tap on.

I just realized that I miss cooking with a loved one at your side and share the experience together.

Like when you open a carton of milk and give it the smell test, say,.....EEEeeeewwww.....smell this.

Your pics looks like the results of eating some 911 chili and being too close to an open flame...

I just discovered frozen pizza dough. NO not the ones that are already flattened out in a pizza shape, they are just a ball of dough, and they cost $1.39 at IGA. Just defrost, let rise and do the rest yourself.
I can either make pizza or calzones out of this and they are just as good as making my own dough without the yeast and the dishes.
After my last experience and doing extensive research, I see that I put way too many toppings on my last homemade pizza. Now I am looking to see what else I could make out of this dough.

What did you come up with? How about cutting rounds out of it and making savory tarts? Just place the rounds in muffin tin holes and fill with your choices of cut up meats or vegetables. Top with sauce and bake.

Sometimes with pizza fewer toppings the better. Just get good ingredients and enjoy them in all their glory. Pepperoni and mushroom, ham and pineapple, margherita...

Just saw at Lakeview Market today, bags of fresh Pizza dough for $1.98. (a big ball, I guess you toss it yourself.)
