    In all seriousness, I would love to chat with someone who was/is in the industry and can lend me an hour of their time. I am completely new to the idea of making pizza and I have a lot of questions. I need to know where to start with prepping the dough, etc. I've been doing extensive research over the last year, but I want to talk to someone in real time to chat back and forth.
    Preferably someone with making pizzas quickly and with electric/gas ovens.

    Find somebody close to you physically- that will help.
    Know we are all happy yo help but sometimes you gotta stand next to the guy to "get it"!

    You can't learn how to make pizza by talking to someone. You don't even know what questions to ask.

    Get a job in the biz. That's the only way.

    I don't have time to go work for someone else, I can watch all of the chain pizza restaurants emoloyee training videos online, which I have. I am going to have someone local come work with me, but I just have some preliminary questions. There's really no pizza place around that does what I plan on doing. They're either the expensive gourmet pizzas that take forever to make or chain places here.

    Hi! yes, more so the process of the dough and the refrigeration process. I have a good idea on the recipe for the dough and sauce but I have questions like how long do they need to be in the freezer and such. I have really enjoyed watching the videos on the website and reading your posts, Tom.
