      I’m pretty sure that Brad is married, and males and females can be friends without being “interested” in each other

        Okay but if you go to sec 14:03 and turn on the captions, Anthony says "crispy-ness" and the caption says "Chris penis" AND I CANT STOP LAUGHING

          Why didn’t they just put the dough directly on the scraper and then top it?

              For some reason Claire snapping her fingers to ask Brad to move something at 26:24 is just super funny to me

                I understand Brad Leone is married, and has a child, and is likely in a fantastic marriage. That being said, I would still throw it back for him.

                    it's a shame she didn't go to Chicago. while we're known for our deep dish, the Chicago-style thin crust is equally as good.

                        I thought this video would be a hit with my SO who wants to start making pizza at home. However I did not factor in the his research background and I can only say that no video has ever incited so much rage for it's lack of "control testing." "One amount of salt and that was justFINE?!?! That's not how we test things!"
