Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Dough — Make sure the water is warm, but not too hot, as this can kill the yeast. Knead the dough well to develop the gluten and create a chewy texture.
  • Tomato sauce — Use canned crushed tomatoes for convenience, but make sure they are of good quality. Add a pinch of sugar to balance the acidity of the tomatoes.
  • Cheese — Use a combination of shredded mozzarella and grated Parmesan for the perfect balance of flavor and texture.

Tips & Tricks

  • For a crispier crust, preheat the pizza pan in the oven before adding the dough.
  • Use a pizza stone for an even crispier crust.
  • Experiment with different toppings, such as pepperoni, mushrooms, or bell peppers.
  • Let the pizza cool for a few minutes before slicing to prevent the cheese from sliding off.
  • Serve with a side of garlic knots or a Caesar salad.

Serving advice

Serve the pizza hot, straight out of the oven. Cut it into large slices that can be folded for easy eating.

Presentation advice

Place the pizza on a large wooden board or pizza stone for a rustic look. Garnish with fresh basil leaves for a pop of color.
