9 Steps to Make a Pizza
The 9 Steps to Make a Pizza
Step 1 - Take dough out of box and place on a well-floured surface. (a table or counter top)
Step 2 - Being sure to keep dough in its original shape, press with fingers or an easier method is with a rolling pin. (The dough should be about the size of the box when finished)
Step 3 - Place dough on a well-oiled cookie sheet or pizza pan and pinch the edges to make a crust.
Step 4 - Place cubes of mozzarella evenly spaced on the dough. (you may purchase pre-shredded cheese also)
Step 5 - A Simple can of crushed tomatoes, not pizza sauce, will be spooned over the mozzarella, be sure to cover all the dough with at least some sauce, get as close to the crust as possible.
Step 6 - You may put some toppings, but it certainly is not necessary. Fresh basil will complete a true Pizza Margherita, if not oregano will do. Add salt and pepper to taste or grated cheese.
Step 7 - Bake pizza in a hot oven 450-500, when the top is golden brown you will need to slide the pizza off of the pan onto the upper most rack of your oven, providing there are no holes, it will take an additional 5 minutes to cook the bottom to a crisp and beautiful golden brown.
Step 8 - Let pizza cool a bit before you attempt to cut it. Enjoy it. You may never buy another pizza again.
