There is a great debate over which comes first pizza delivery. Best Pizza made by hand to have a richer taste and a moister crust. The crust can be made very thin or very thick – it’s all up to you.
Step by step, here’s how to make your pizza. Start with a sauce of your choice (I like to use tomato-based spices for my pizzas), a bunch of basil (or your favorite herbs), olive oil, and pizza stones (these are the flat stones that you lay your ingredients on). Heat the marinara sauce over medium heat while chopping up these other ingredients. If you have a cast iron pizza stone, you may also let it get boiling over high heat.
After this, you’ll need some wheat flour, a bit of salt, and your pizza preparation mixture. I prefer the pizza preparation mix to egg salad dressing. This way, I have much fewer problems with overcooked ingredients. I usually let mine cook for about five minutes in the oven before removing them from the oven.
Then it’s time actually to make the pizza. Start by putting half of the bread dough on one side of the pizza pan. Spread the rest of the ingredients on top of the bread dough. Form the pizza’s ‘base’ into an oblong shape and place it on the prepared baking bricks. Place the toppings around this and cover with more of the bread mixture.
Most pizzerias will have a built-in pizza preparation platter. You take your ingredients and place this on the side. Some will have individual placemats for different components. Just scoop all of your ingredients into this and spread on top of the base. If your ingredients have different shapes or sizes, be sure to tuck them in amongst the other ingredients. The goal is to have them level with the sides of the pizza pan.
Now for the toppings! There are literally hundreds of toppings you can use for your pizza. Make sure that they all stay on top of the base and underneath the bread crumbs. I like to use shredded sharp cheddar cheese on my pizza’s, as it adds a nice sharp taste to the pizza and keeps the veggies in tact.
If you want to add a little extra flair to your pizzas, why not sprinkle some fresh basil on top of your toppings. This will give a nice smell to the pizza and give it a little bit of flavor as well. Sprinkle some Parmesan Reggiano over your pizza if you like a little extra cheese on your pizza. It also gives the dough a nice crunch to it.
You can really put up a pizzeria very quickly. Many people don’t know that you can make a pizza at home very quickly. You won’t have to wait around for your pizza to be cooked by your oven. With a simple homemade crust and toppings, you can have your pizza ordered almost immediately. All you need to do then is to heat the oven and baste your pizza whenever it is ready.
When making your pizza dough, use only natural wheat flour. The more wheat flour you use, the more pizza it will taste like. Also, try and stay away from using any white flour on your dough. White flour will make the pizza taste bland, even though it does contain a lot of calories.
When making your pizza dough, you should add salt and pepper to it. The purpose of this is to bring out the flavors of the ingredients. For instance, you can add the flavors of garlic and onion to your tomato sauce. Or you can add basil, Rosemary, oregano, and other herbs and spices to the onions. All of these will bring out their own unique flavor to your pizza dough.
Some pizzerias already have pre-made pizza dough, but if yours doesn’t, you can buy it at any grocery store or deli. It’s best to use this pizza dough in a regular oven set. The reason why pizza tastes so good when made in a regular oven is because the ingredients are heated to the right temperatures and mixed thoroughly with oil and then baked in the oven. However, these types of pizzerias that already have pizza dough baked in them will usually charge extra for this service. In addition, some will charge for extra ingredients such as cheese and other toppings, since they usually bake the dough in smaller portions than pizzerias that make their pizza dough from scratch.
When it comes to actual pizza preparation, most pizzerias have a standard number of slices per customer. Some will allow customers to request as many different slices as they would like, but they must be prepared in advance. Therefore, a customer who ordered five slices would need to be prepared to order another two slices. This way, the pizzeria won’t run out of pizza slices during the meal.
