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.
How to defrost pizza dough?
You should defrost frozen pizza dough by leaving it in a warm place for at least a few hours. You can also then use the defrost mode on your microwave to speed up the process a little.
Can I make pizza without making pizza dough?
Absolutely! Just buy a premade base at your shopping centre, or even ask your local pizza store if they will sell you some bases or dough. It’s amazing how many people will willingly do this, to encourage you to start your homemade pizza hobby.
Can I use Baking Powder instead of yeast?
I don’t recommend using baking powder as a replacement at all. Baking powder is a chemical leavener. It isn’t the same as yeast at all. Yeast is an organism that enables pizza dough to develop richer flavors and texture. Types of bread that are made with chemical leaveners are a totally different texture than pizza.
