I cannot make the dough!,
This review is from: The Art of Pizza Making: Trade Secrets and Recipes (Plastic Comb)
This is my opinion: Save your money! I have made the dough four times with high gluten flour and all four times IT DID NOT WORK! I made it twice in the breadmachine, once by hand and nearly broke my wrists kneading it and once in a mixmaster with dough hooks. I followed the directions and put it in the refrigerator for up to 20 hours. When I tried to shape it into a pizza shape IT WOULD NOT DO ANYTHING! Last night I cut it into little pieces and used them as juggling balls. That's the only thing I could do with it.
There are some good ideas in the book such as dough dressing, what type of cheese, sauce recipe and the homegenisation of the dough. But the dough process needs to be explained in more detail as I have followed the instructions TO THE LETTER and it DID NOT WORK! I have wasted my money on two bags of high gluten flour which cost over $3.50 each.
I consider myself to be a good cook so I don't think it's me!...

If it's not you, then who is it? Plenty of other people, myself included, seem to have no problem following the book's instructions.
