Pizza making FAQ
Want to know how to make great pizza at home? Here are some helpful answers to the most frequently asked questions.
Can I use bread dough for making pizza?
Sadly no. Bread dough doesn’t have the same consistency and needs that a pizza dough has. If you mean bread flour, yes, many bread flours are fine enough to work for pizza, however I always recommend )) flour instead, which is created for pizza dough making.
What is the order of ingredients when topping a pizza?
The order of ingredients when topping a pizza is typically the pizza sauce, the large ingredients (meat, seafood, vegetables, etc), the smaller ingredients, cheese topping then herbs. If you are using fresh herbs, you may wish to bake the oven then sprinkle them on afterwards, to avoid them browning.
When do I add ice cream on a dessert pizza?
With ingredients such as ice cream, cream and even fruits, it is normally best to cook the pizza with the harder toppings, and then add these toppings after baking, so they don’t burn or melt everywhere in the oven.
