Dough Recommendations

 

Pizza is one of the most indulgent and fun meals to make at home. You can really elevate your pizzas by cooking the crusts correctly, using interesting sauces, a variety of cheeses, and interesting toppings. We use the overnight pizza dough from the book Flour, Water, Salt, Yeast. I highly recommend this book if you are interested in bread or pizza making. You can use any pizza dough you like, any recipe or store bought. The difference comes with how you bake it! Preheat your oven to 500 degrees with a pizza stone in the oven. Once it has reached 500, shape your pizza. Make it as thin as you can without ripping it. You can use a rolling pin, but I just use my hands. Sprinkle a piece of parchment paper with flour, place the pizza on top. Pick up the parchment paper with the dough on it and place it directly on the pizza stone. Bake it for 5 minutes.
