Tips for Making the Best Pizza

The best pizza you have ever had is just a trial away and yes, you can make it yourself! Homemade pizza is fantastic, not just because you can add lots of cheese or extra ingredients, but because you get to make it yourself. Whether you are making a simple pizza or a complicated pie with special sauces and toppings, having the right tricks in your arsenal can make all the difference. In this article, we will explain 5 top tricks for making the best pizza.

Everyone knows that good dough is the first step to making good pizza. There are however other factors that can take your pizza from good, to mouthwatering delicious. Here are some tips to bear in mind:

Use Accurate Measurements

Now is not the time to put your guessing game to the test. For best results, you must follow the measurements in your chosen recipe strictly. If you need to convert measurements, then use an online metric calculator. Every decision you make counts.

Proofing

Want to make the best pizza? Make your dough in advance. Preparing your pizza dough in advance helps to ensure that you lock in this critical step: proofing. Proofing is giving the yeast in your dough sufficient time to break down and create the perfect texture for an excellent pizza crust. 

So, if you wish to eat the best pizza, don’t disturb the proofing process. You can leave the dough in your fridge for 24 hours, or up to 3 days.

Preheat Your Oven

Do not make the mistake of turning on your oven just before you put in the pizza dough. Depending on whether you are using a wooden oven or a standard electric oven, you need to give it some time to get started. 

We recommend that your temperature is up to 550° Fahrenheit before the cooking begins. Your pizza needs all the heat it can get in the beginning. It’s the secret to getting just the right amount of crisp on the outside and soft texture on the inside.

Stretch The Dough

After proofing your dough, you should take out the quantity of dough you wish to use, and stretch gently to fill your baking pan or tray. Unlike bread dough, pizza dough does not require excessive kneading or rolling. Simply flatten the dough, pushing from the edges till it fits your pan.

Choose your Sauces and Toppings Carefully

Although Homemade pizzas are known for their versatility, not all items are suitable toppings for your pizza. First, ensure that you spread a thin layer of sauce. If your toppings have excess juice, you must strain the juice before placing them on the pizza. Otherwise, you run the risk of making your dough soggy, thus resulting in heavy, poorly cooked pizza.

So, ensure that your toppings do not add extra moisture to the pizza. In addition, you may consider precooking your toppings.
