    Thank you!

  • Hannah Plas  (May 26, 2018))

    You should put the fresh basil on after the pizza was in the oven. The leaves look better and more importantly, they taste a lot better fresh than cooked!

  • Cainã Maturo  (Feb 3, 2019))

    Yes, the real italian way to do it is to put the basil before. It's said that the aroma from the basil will spread through the pizza while cooking.

  • Doyle911  (Jan 24, 2019))

    Only on a cooking channel, you can see people arguing about basil, and not even on the typical "should you put this on pizza, or not?" but about the when. Thanks lads and lasses, i had a great time reading these. :D

    "basics"..."take your pizza peel" "put it on to your pizza stone" I've made the dough going to experiment tomorrow about how to get it into the oven and find an alternative to a pizza stone. Some alternatives in the video would've been nice considering this is in the 'basics' series.

  • DawWilliamAi  (Jan 16, 2019))

    I use upside down baking tray ... works perfectly

  • Hannah Baker  (Jan 12, 2019))

    tf is a pizza stone

  • is that sauce yellow?

  • barbarino  (4 days ago))

    Secretly added turmeric.

  • S-Boy  (Feb 14, 2019))

    It's because of the air that was incorporated to the sauce when put it in the blender
