Pizza making FAQ
Want to know how to make fantastic pizza at home? Here are some FAQ and their answers to the most common pizza making questions.
What temperature should I use for baking pizza?
If you’re using a baking pan or pizza pan, preheat your oven pretty much as high as it can go. I’m talking about 500°F (260°C) or higher. If you’re using a pizza stone, don’t forget to preheat that as well. Always let it heat up for at least 30 minutes, before adding your first pizzas.
How long does it take to digest pizza?
It typically takes around 6-8 hours for pizza to digest in your stomach. The higher the fat content, the longer food takes to digest. Pizza has carbs in the sauce, crust and vegetable toppings, plus high fat and protein in any meat and cheese.
Why pineapple belongs on pizza?
