Pizza making FAQ
Hope to make fantastic pizza at home? Here are some expert answers to some of the most Frequently asked questions.
How to cook pizza in the microwave?
Microwaving pizza gets a bad wrap, however try adding a glass of water when you zap a slice. The water works to help avoid the usual sogginess of microwaved pizza.
Why is my dough not stretching?
Pizza dough won’t stretch much until it has rested long enough to use. If your dough is resisting your stretching attempts, you need to let your dough rest at room temperature for at least another half hour or so.
How come some pizza dough recipes include sugar and others do not?
Some people use sugar to give the yeast a helping hand growing at the start. A dough made without added sugar and risen slowly will often produce a beautiful brown crust. However, many people want pizza dough to be ready faster, then they suggest added sugar, which helps the yeast to grow and gives some browning to the crust.
