The host is so arrogant and annoying. He is constantly bragging his intelligence or social media account. He makes it unbearable

Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

While there's nothing wrong with this show, it falls a smidge flat like a slightly under-yeasted pizza dough. Best in Dough follows the same format as many other half-hour cooking competition shows, with a mini challenge followed by the final prize-determining challenge. On the plus side, the contestants are characters and talk about how different cultural backgrounds influence their pizzas. On the negative side, the host is just OK and the manufactured reality-show drama has a cheese-factor. Best in Dough is a totally fine and fun family-friendly show, but it doesn't offer the same joyful entertainment as other shows in the genre like Is It Cake?, Nailed It, or Baking It. Pizza-loving kids who like cooking shows may still eat it up though (and grown-ups should be prepared to procure a pizza after watching).
