Here's part two if anyone is interested...
I took the liberty to make a few pretzels today, and the mixer purred right along under load. Hope that new food safe grease I discovered works as advertised.You can't go wrong with the KA. You see them in more professional kitchens than just about anything else (save for Hobart) but generally KA is what they have for their counter top machines
Now let's see how you pick up a slice of that pizza.The pizza turned out nice! Some of the best crust I've made so far.
For what it's worth, I load my pizzas up with at least 8 ounces of cheese, 8 ounces of sausage, half a pack of pepperoni, half a bell pepper, half a can of olives, half a pint of mushrooms (lol), etc.
