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!
Why is my dough not stretching?
Pizza dough won’t stretch much until it has rested long enough to use. If your dough is resisting your stretching attempts, you need to let your dough rest at room temperature for at least another half hour or so.
How come some pizza dough recipes include sugar and others do not?
Some people use sugar to give the yeast a helping hand growing at the start. A dough made without added sugar and risen slowly will often produce a beautiful brown crust. However, many people want pizza dough to be ready faster, then they suggest added sugar, which helps the yeast to grow and gives some browning to the crust.
How long do I bake my pizza?
The pizza baking times depend on the oven you are using. An average kitchen oven set to 500F should cook a pizza well in 12 to 15 minutes. A wood-fired oven hotter than 750F will cook a pizza in 2-3 minutes.
