    Why didn’t they just put the dough directly on the scraper and then top it?

    Cornmeal instead of flour when stretching on a surface. :)

    For some reason Claire snapping her fingers to ask Brad to move something at 26:24 is just super funny to me

    I understand Brad Leone is married, and has a child, and is likely in a fantastic marriage. That being said, I would still throw it back for him.

    it's a shame she didn't go to Chicago. while we're known for our deep dish, the Chicago-style thin crust is equally as good.

    I thought this video would be a hit with my SO who wants to start making pizza at home. However I did not factor in the his research background and I can only say that no video has ever incited so much rage for it's lack of "control testing." "One amount of salt and that was justFINE?!?! That's not how we test things!"

    Love The 3rd Guys Way. I Use My Own Sprouted, Then Dried & Fresh Ground Wheat Flour and Absolutely Use My Natural Wild Yeast Sourdough Starter for All My Bread Items, Including Hamburger & Hotdog Buns. So I Super Appreciate The Sourdough Pizza Crust Style! 😁

    Claire is the Boss. Look at her outfit at the beginning looks so formal and professional and all the rest of the team is dressed so casual. She's the pizza guru

    Claire The Pastry Chef Who Is With Bon Appétit, can you please attempt to make a gourmet-version of Totino's party pizza CRUST ? It's like a buttery, flaky, airy, giant soft cracker, if there ever was such a thing. I've always wished Totino's would sell just their pizza crust plain, so to add custom/gourmet toppings, but they still only sell it as frozen pizza, so please make a gourmet version of Totino's Party Pizza CRUST , thanks in advance

    I wonder about using garlic salt instead of plain salt. Garlic makes everything better. 😍
