Does anybody want to join our Berrybaby pizza celebration?

25 days ago Berrybaby cracked her tooth and was forced into soft food diet. She is craving for pizza, but she still has another week to go before her next visit to the dentist.
https://food52.com/hotline...

She is looking forward to eat solids again and the first food she will eat is a thin New York style Pizza.
https://food52.com/hotline...

I couldn’t miss this opportunity and I will celebrate with her from The French Riviera making Pizza that same day.

Greenstuff will also join our celebrations from California, with a “not too” thin crust pizza. She doesn’t want to risk to crack her theet.

I hope luisez can join, as she also was on soft food since she got her wisdom teeth removed.
So we have BerryBaby from Oregon, Greenstuff from California, me from the French Riviera.

Anyone else would like to join our Pizza celebration?

Berrybaby we will wait for your signal, but please let us know one day ahead.
As Pierino says, the pizza dough has to rest overnight in the fridge.

You are too funny! Thank you for organizing the party. I just had my birthday last week so this is quite the gift! When I get the go ahead from the dentist, you will be the first to know!

You are very welcome. I very much sympathize with you, I crave pizza every day. ;-)
A birthday is not a birthday with soft food. Lets see if we can make it worldwide !!!!

Thanks for this, Guardian Chef. Fabulous idea. Not sure if I'll be up for eating pizza (PIZZA -- sounds heavenly) by then, but I'll join in in spirit. Best to BerryBaby in what I hope will be a smooth recovery.

In a sad day of mourning #Brexit, finally a good news. I booked my calendar and hopefully we can also celebrate more clarity on "What's next ???"

Almost certainly the Scots will leave the UK. Bring on the Haggis. Meanwhile Wales and Iceland have made it to the knockout rounds in Euro 2016. Iceland plays England next.

Iceland is playing England today in Nice, the entire French Riviera standing still as most roads will be closed. The Sterling has dropped another 2% and markets are not even open yet (7am).

With the UK vote today and the freewheeling stock market I feel like I have been knocked sideways, and am craving solid comforting food. I am in for the pizza celebration, but might just have to start a little earlier. Like today if I had the dough ready.

Thanks, Windischgirl. It's too soon for me to have pizza, but my time will come. In the meantime, pizza will remain one of my fantasy foods (closely followed by a crispy everything bagel with slabs of beefsteak tomatoes, and salads with crisp vegetables). And thanks again, YGC, and best to BerryBaby.

Hope you are able to eat everything you want soon! I can eat fairly well on one side. Getting the craves for a deep, dish, pie. I guess when you know you 'can't' eat certain things, that's when you start wanting the impossible!

I am looking forward to Friday's celebration. I've decided to go classic with Pierino's runner up recipe in the "Your Best Pizza" contest. https://food52.com/recipes... It'll be my first pizza since I had to switch to a gas grill. A great little adventure to get us all thinking about things other than dentists and politics. Thanks for organizing!

Yes! I pulled out all my pizza recipes today and am contemplating which one I'm going to use. The one recipe calls for the dough to be in the refrigerator for at least one day and up to five days. I may go with that as I'm getting the itch to make dough and setting my site on this pizza party! Looking forward to seeing all your photos...bet we have some incredible creations!

Euro2016: Italy won against Spain and we are in the quarter-final against Germany on Saturday.
Friday is a perfect day to celebrate.

I am dreaming about Pizza parmigiana with grilled eggplants.

Ooh, what a fun thing you've got going. I'm out tonight so will be making a cheater dough (self rising flour and greek yogurt) tomorrow. Going to a friend's garden tomorrow afternoon, so toppings will be lemon olive oil and whatever is ripe - with some mozzarella, of course!

Yeah! Pizza Party day! I used the Serious Eats recipe for New York Pizza Dough and sauce. The sauce is amazing! Can't wait to put it all together. I'll take a photo of the finished product. Thanks, everyone! Enjoy the party.....

Yum! Looks Delicious! Thank you so much for organizing this. What fun it has been anticipating the pizza. And, it has never tasted so good! You definitely helped my healing time to fly by and took my mind off of it. You aren't only a Guardian Chef, you are an Earth Angel! :)

Yesterday was my sister's birthday and all she wanted was one of my deep dish Italian pies. Here is a photo of one of the finished pies. It was delicious!

Pour you, as I am in Italy I am celebrating every day with one excuse or another. I would do with some forced diets ! The highlight is the Arancino served on board of the Caronte ferry crossing Messina strait. People cross over just for that

Thank you! I had procedure two yesterday (implant) so back to yogurt, ice cream and soft rolls for the next week! Good thing I had my pie three days ago. Wonder if I'll lose any more weight? Don't really need to, I'm pretty much where I should be. If I do that just means I can have more pizza!
