Making Pizza At Home
Have you ever made pizza at home, but didn’t get that perfect pie? Today, we reveal some mistakes when making pizza at home and how to avoid them from Chef Salar:
1. If the dough is too cold if you roll it, it wouldn’t cook all the way through.
Make sure your dough isn’t too cold when you’re rolling it, your oven will thank you.
2. Too much moisture in the pizza.
Whether it’s from an overload of toppings or too much sauce, too much moisture in your pizza makes it too watery and you don’t get that nice crisp crust. Be mindful when building your pizza for that crunchy, perfect crust.
3. Cheese overload.
Packing too much cheese, such as pressing it into the dough, means there’s no nice airflow in the cheese and it doesn’t melt. You might have clumps of unmelted cheese throughout your pizza. While it’s up to you to decide how much cheese you want, make sure it’s not squished so you can have ooey gooey slices for that beautiful cheese pull.
4. Oven trouble.
When baking your pizza, you want to bake it from the bottom up. You don’t want the heat coming out from the top of the oven or else you could burn your cheese while having a raw crust. You also don’t want it too close to the bottom or it could burn your pizza. The middle rack is the best, and for an extra crisp crust, move your pizza to the bottom rack for the last 5 minutes of baking.
