When making Surf and Turf Pizza, it’s always handy to have the right pizza making tools. Here’s the basic pizza tools that I always suggest…
Wooden Rolling Pin
Many people prefer hand stretching, however every cook really should have a good wooden roller nearby too.
You will find having a seive such a useful element for pizza making as well as all your baking. It’s great to filter all flours through a fine mesh sieve, to make sure they’re ready for use.
Good quality metal or plastic bench scrapers make it so much esier to both cut your dough, and scrape your bench. I prefer plastic to avoid scratching my bench.
When it comes to delicious pizza toppings, beef fillet should be at the top of your list. Many people enjoy the tender texture and robust flavor that a quality cut of beef can provide to their favorite pizzas.
Beef steak pieces on your cheese-filled delight, there’s no denying that adding beef to your pizza is an easy way to take it from good to great.

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.
Can I use a mixer to make the dough?
Sure thing! I regularly do. Always use a mixer with a dough hook attachment to make your pizza dough. First, add the dry ingredients and form a well to add the liquid, then always start on the lowest speed first, before increasing the speed and mixing for 5-6 minutes. If your mixer starts sounding like it’s straining, turn it to a slower speed for a longer time.
Where was the world’s most expensive pizza made?
The worlds most expensive pizza costs $12,000 and is made in Salerno, Italy.
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.
