Pizza is not pizza if it doesn’t have the right parts and ingredients. Some of the most important parts of pizza are the pizza sauce, the pizza toppings and the pizza crust. If you want to get the best results with your pizza, ensure that each of these components are perfectly made out. Your homemade pizza will thus be the best thing you ever made in your life. Hereunder we discuss some of the best secrets that you need to know if you want the best pizza.

Pizza Crust Secrets

Bake your pizza crust separately: The best pizza is that which is made by starting with the crust first. You need to do this separately from the rest of the pizza parts. Once the crust is okay, you can then add the toppings and the sauce. The major reason why good pizzas have to be made this way is that when you do the cooking wholesomely, the pizza may end being having overcooked toppings, cheese that is burnt, yet the crust will be undercooked. However, remember not to cook the crust fully since when adding the other parts, it will also continue cooking.

Proper mixing of pizza dough ingredients: This is also one of the most important considerations when making pizzarias. The warm water should be put on the bowl at a one-tenth level as specified by the recipe of the homemade pizza. Then you add the yeast into the water gradually as you stir it and give it a few minutes to stand. Use a separate bowl to mix the remaining warm water with sugar and salt (just in case your recipe requires these ingredients) and any other dry ingredients other than flour. Add the ready-made warm water and yeast mixture, stir all these and add the remaining ingredients immediately.

Kneading the pizza mixture: This is useful for proper mixing of the flour and ingredients. It won’t stick to the container either. However, don’t do over-kneading too.

Give the pizza dough some time to rise before using it: Longer fermentation time helps your pizza rise higher and also makes the taste sweeter. Be careful though by not using too much yeast in case you need to keep the dough rising for a bit longer.

If speed is of much essence: More yeast is essential for making the dough rise faster hence faster preparation. Dough temperature is also helpful here. You can use a warm oven to achieve the higher temperatures for quick rising of the dough. Quick fermentation can also be achieved using warm water for the mixture. This makes pizza preparation faster and even easier.

To get a thick or thinner pizza crust: Use a smaller circumference for your pan if you intend to have a thicker pizza. You can also use more pizza dough on every pan. The other alternative is to stretch out your dough less. Do the opposite if you want a thinner pizza.

To get a crispy pizza crust: Here, you need to use less amount of water. It is best if you can use flour composed of high gluten content for a perfect crispy crust.

Pizza Toppings

These depend so much on the type of pizza you are making. They may be expensive or cheap, but they don’t really have to be very expensive.Pizzarias em Jardim Luanda
