what I find interesting in our 9 years of our small Pizza shop is that everyone has a different opinion of what a ‘cooked’ pizza should look like! I have some customers that want that edge LIGHT golden brown, and others that want it looking so dark its almost burnt. I find I can’t please everyone without them communicating to me how they like it done. [NOTE: we use a deck oven]
And then there’s the factor of what veggies are on a pizza vs a meat pizza. Our all veggie pizza may come out of the oven, cooked to perfection, but once its CUT all the moisture will soak up into the cut edges of crust softening it back up and people complain that they want it overcooked to prevent that. So, for take out, I offer to not cut it at all so they can take it home and cut it right away to preserve the crackery cutty crust that comes out of our oven.
I agree totally with what DoughDoc says.
So, properly cooked is one thing, but people have some strange ideas of what it means to them! That’s my story and I’m sticking to it
