          homemade pizza is always many times better than store bought pizza. Ive made it from scratch a few times and everyone said it was the best pizza they ever had. It may cost twice as much as a store bought but is so much better. and is worth the time and effort.

              You are the man, but that pizza looks trash. Let us in the Northeast worry bout the pizza vids. Everything else in other vids always looks great though.

                Quite shocking how a lot of people in the comment section seem to be able to offer a lot of knowledge on how Sam is undercooking/incorrectly cooking a meal, yet somehow none of them seem to have any notable prior experience or a successful online medium where they can share that knowledge with the masses. Not saying they don't know how to cook, but jeez, since when do we need to nitpick every single thing? HOMEMADE is right there in the title, and Sam's videos typically tend to be in the vein of a follow-along tutorial that most viewers out there can create as well. How many people do you know that just have a pizza stone lying around, or who are willing to buy one because they're going to be crafting "authentic" NY style pizzas at home often enough to benefit? If you're familiar enough with the channel to comment, you're familiar enough to know that he typically does things his own way, with his own twist, but with as much done as close as possible to the "real-deal" to make it worthwhile. And I'm sorry, but for the "New-Yorkers" out there, I have trouble believing you're actually from NY. A pie made in this fashion can't be made to some perfect godly standard in modern times just due to general population and demand. For all intents and purposes, especially done at home without a wood-fired oven and any specialty equipment (which I can guarantee almost nobody here has) he did a fine job. Not a fanboy, not a subscriber, not even really a regular watcher, just stating facts. Get off your high-horse, and if you want to continue to criticize a well-decorated cook for actually doing justice to an age-old recipe and cooking style given his tools and equipment, ride that horse right on over to whatever cooking channel you think can do it better, and give your praise there rather than spreading your hatred here.

                Also as a side note, I challenge you to learn a little more about the typical film camera, lighting, and white-balance. What you see on film is not always what you see in person, so if you're basing your feelings on the dough of this recipe on what you see in the video, you shouldn't. No shade thrown at Max (dude needs to churn out videos like crazy, props for what he does), but look at the light in the background of the video when Sam is eating the pizza. Look at the logo on Sam's shirt. Does natural white/light glow that vibrantly in person? Of course not. So clearly the pizza would be nowhere near that "undercooked-looking" in person, it would be far less pale and white, much closer to a traditional light-brown. Try to use a bit more brainpower before judging a group of people who take a lot more effort out of their day than you to create something and post it to a public forum. I'm pretty sure most people learned these basic lessons of life in the first grade.

                Sorry for the long-winded post, but wow, this is the first time I've felt passionate enough to comment like this just based upon the few wannabe-chef posts that I've seen right at the top of the comment section. Try to be nicer. You'll feel better about yourselves. (No hatred towards those who commented just trying to help though, I see where you guys are coming from too.)

                    I'm a New Yorker as well. Born, raised and still living in NY. Sam my man have you ever been to NY and tried a slice? If you have please let us know where if you are comparing your pizza to that NY pizza so not to ever go there. I hate to admit it but a NY $1 slice looks better than your pizza. Next time you're in NY try Lomdardi's pizza. It's the best in NY pizza.

                        To be completely honest, the subscribe, notification, and social media (and etc.) graphics have become very cringey, in the way, and overused. I don’t mean this in just a criticizing way, I am just trying to suggest that some changes are made in that way, maybe no sound effects or graphics that cover the shot... it just feels like old YouTube to be. Take all of this with a grain of salt I guess, this is just my opinion that I’m trying to provide in the most helpful way possible. The videos are still great and the food always awesome, so thanks for the great stuff! Have a good one 🤙🏻

                                  You need to visit a chain pizza place that still tosses dough. Watch how they do it I've made pizza for over 8 years but I could bang out dough to toss within 30 seconds week one. It only takes about 20-30 to learn its just they have to be floured so wasting 20-30 would be a waste. Maybe someone will show you. However your outcome is impressive considering the technique. Well done sam. A New York thin the way I was thought is you take the smallest dough and stretch it thin as possible over sizing you pizza pan or screen. Then you cut the excess off and top normal. The result is a very thin pizza.

                                      Crust is a bit pale. I had the exact same issue as this video when it came to how my crust looked and felt while making a fairly authentic NY style pizza. Partially freeze your shredded mozz. Use a pizza stone. Boom. More time to cook the dough without burning the cheese and you are going to have a better crust due the cooking surface keeping its heat on contact with the pizza. I also recommend proofing the dough for longer because damn it will taste good.

                                      Some advice for others: Depending on your oven, you may wanna turn up or down the temperature but keep it around around 500 degrees. I recommend trying to cook with as hot an oven as possible first. IIRC NY style is cooked in 500 degree ovens so keep it around there if you are worried. Adjust your oven's rack height if you still are getting issues.

                                          Forgive me if this issue has already been addressed by one or more of the thousands of comments before mine, but…

                                          … It’s probably been a few decades since I actually paid attention to anyone in a slice joint while they’re cooking. If I’m in a slice joint, it’s probably because I’m busy and preoccupied with whatever nonsense it is that seems like the most important thing in the world at the moment. However, while I’ve certainly seen people use a pizza pan to finish shaping the dough, and dressing the dough, I can’t recall anybody ever putting one of those pans in the oven. After the pie cooks, directly on the floor of one of the many decks of the oven, it’s transferred back into the pan for presentation and slicing. I’ve certainly never seen anyone at a slice joint transfer the pie to a wooden cutting board for slicing. Where are we? In f’in’ California?

                                          That said, this was, as always, a thoroughly entertaining video. Keep doing your thing.
