Pizza making FAQ
Want to know how to make delicious pizza at home? Here are some FAQ and their answers to the most common pizza making questions.
Is it OK to use store-bought pizza dough?
Of course it is! It’s fine to use pizza dough you bought at the store. In fact, in many cases you can buy balls of pizza dough from your favorite pizzeria, if you ask nicely. Make sure that the ingredients belong there (flour, sugar, salt, yeast) and not lots of preservatives. If the dough you buy is chilled, always let it come fully to room temperature before you use it.
How to freeze pizza?
Pizza is best frozen not long after it has cooled from cooking. Ensure that it is wrapped well, or in a zip lock bag and air tight. Consume the pizza within 2-3 months.
Do I just use tap water for pizza dough?
Sure, however water quality can be an issue in some areas. If your water has high chlorine content, it may inhibit yeast growth. I often use cooled water from the kettle, or filtered water when making pizza dough. Don’t use boiling water though, as it will kill your yeast before it even starts its work.
