Center of pizza is soft and mushy

Doh! Thanks for the link, it lead me to more links and this has been investigated thoroughly here. I think my problem is moving the stone way to high (screw ATK's tips) and then only preheating for around 30 mins. I'll try lowering the stone and preheating for one hour. Thanks Adam.

Foolproof Pan Pizza

As many have already said, putting a cold iron skillet into a 500F oven for 12-15 min produced a disappointing mushy-mess of a pizza. In order to make this a winner, having a hot hot hot oven is a must. Others have finished the pizza on the stove-top. That might be a plan. Kenji, it'd be nice if you re-did this recipe formula using pie pans instead too. Your Sicilian recipe is much much better than this mess.

Mallomar Pie

Crust could either use more butter or be pre-baked. My crust was dust w/ this recipe.

Apple Cider Doughnut Cake

Ended up with over a cup of the apple/cider sauce, saved it and poured over the cake slices! The sugar topping was a lot, so sprinkled over the bundt mixture once in the pan - makes for a crunchy crust. Will probably add some diced apple to mix next time. Great recipe.

Competition-Style Barbecue Chicken Thighs

Meh, silly extra steps SE -- Keep the skin on and coat the thighs w/ oil and dry rub. Use indirect heat method in a Weber Kettle with lump and a foil wrapped chunk of hickory for 45 mins turning once. Baste and turn thighs for the last 15-20 minutes of cooking. Done.
