Pizzas

Regardless of age, there's virtually no one that doesn't appreciate a good pizza at least every once in a while.

Pizza has been referred to as a classic food staple of college life, as well as a common meal served at casual functions like birthdays, family reunions, and sleepover parties.

What makes pizza so appealing to so many people is that you can get pizza in just about any variety you want.

There are even celebrity chefs that make it their mission to add a luxury quality to pizza. Like hamburgers, pizza is more about the toppings than the actual base.

If you're looking for something to really get you back in the kitchen, making your own pizza is definitely a project you'll want to look into. Indeed, you will definitely find pizza making both fun as well as challenging. Like other baking tasks, making pizza is a mixture of art as well as science.

If you really are serious about making pizza, there are a few things you need to know to really pull off a great pizza that you can serve for just about any occasion.

First, you want to make sure that you have all the ingredients you need for a good pizza in advance. For example, if you're trying to make a classic American-style pizza, you will need to make sure that you have low moisture cheese that won't burn at high temperatures, such as mozzarella, provolone, romano, and feta.

Note that feta is very salty, so if you're trying to keep your sodium levels low, you may want to skip this Greek cheese completely. The sauce on a pizza is just as important, but you don't have to be limited to a red sauce if you don't want to. While marinara sauce is something that's been held as the standard, people have been using new sauces like pesto and melted herb butters.

 

 

Next, you will want to make sure that you focus on the dough as well. The dough will be the foundation of the pizza that you will ultimately serve, so it pays off to focus on building the right dough. If you're doing a basic hand tossed pizza dough, then you will need to make sure that you master the art of mixing and kneading the dough. If you want to get the authentic homemade quality of pizza-making, you will need to make everything by hand. However, there are stand mixers that can actually mix and knead the pizza dough for you.

Finally, once you have the dough prepared and rolled out, you will need to make sure that you have the right baking tools. A good pizza screen or pizza stone will ensure that your pizza bakes evenly, if you're using a traditional oven, and not a conveyor pizza oven. It goes without saying that you'll want to still make sure that you have your pizza toppings in place before you actually put the pizza into the oven.

All things considered, pizza is both easy and challenging all at the same time. If you really take the time to prepare the pizza with love and care, you'll find that you'll have no trouble at all making a tasty pizza that your whole family will love!
