Pizza making FAQ
Below we’ve compiled the most common pizza making questions and provided expert answers. Are you looking for how to make delicious pizza at home? Please read on!
Can I use ciabatta bread for making pizza?
Yes! Breads are great to make pizza on, as it is quicker than making your own dough from scratch. Try my favourite, which is flat bread. It gets very crispy though, so don’t cook it for long. Otherwise, ciabatta or italian breads are also good alternatives if you are short on time.
Can I freeze pizza dough?
You sure can! Make a batch of homemade pizza dough, make it into balls, then put each ball into a zip-top freezer bag or vacuum seal bag. Write the date on the bag, and then you can freeze your pizza dough for up to 3 months.
How do I use a pizza peel?
As soon as your dough is topped, immediately slide it onto your freshly floured pizza peel on a 15-30 degree angle, then open your oven and shimmy it onto the super-hot stone or wood fired oven base, using quick back and forth motions.
