Default Tried my UUNI 3 today for 1st time, I have a lot to learn!

Ingredients for pizza sauce!




Sauce cooked down!



Dough rested in bag for 1 hour per package instructions.


Ingredients for the pies!



Stretching dough!


Assembly



Cooking


So the flavor was really good. I had a hard time getting the dough to stretch and get thin enough. First couple we more charred on outside, but dough was doughy. I have a lot to learn with this cooker. We had fun, and the family liked the pies. I need to work on the dough some, and also maybe turning heat down a tad more. I was running gas at 3/4 full.

I use "IrfanView" to resize and convert pictures to a reasonable size. Pretty easy to use for all sorts of conversions too.

Nice!
They don't look bad at all from where I am sitting :)


If the dough doesn't stretch fully or easily, you just need to let it rest a bit longer.
I used the gas burner on full blast, I just play with the door open and closed to control the temperature somewhat.
The uuni likes thin dough and minimal toppings.

Wow, cool video. Yea, my dough was very tight. I had a difficult time getting it to stretch. I even tried the rolling pin, but it would not budge much.

Looks really good to me! I've been considering one of those myself for a long time.

Sometimes you have to wait a min and then continue stretching otherwise the dough gets over worked and less pliable. Also need to make sure to bring it up to room temperature. I’m sure some of our resident pizza experts will be along soon to get you on track.
Good luck and enjoy your practice sessions.

I am a pizza newby as well. My first time I was like you...could not get the dough to stretch and like you tried a roling pin. Later learned a rolling pin is a big no-no. Then I found
this forum https://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php. Made my own dough 63% hydration...8 hour room temp ferment...3 day fridge ferment...and wow was it way easier to stretch.

Pizza is all about the dough..so I would research making your own..its not that hard...but it does take 3-4 days. Oh and I did order a 6 lb bag of caputo 00 flour off amazon.

I am no expert...this is just what I have learned in my two pie making experiences.

If your dough won't relax once you get it partially to where you want it just let it sit on the counter with a damp towel over it for up to an hour and then use your finger tips to press it out to the size you want, make sure to flour you work surface otherwise if the dough sticks it wont spread out.
