My Favorite Pizza
Transcript of My Favorite Pizza
Add tomatoes, salt, pepper, oregano, basil and puree. Bring to a boil, then simmer covered for two hours. Stir occasionally, crushing the tomates with a potato masher. •Continue to mash, stir, and simmer partially covered until the sauce reaches the consistency of a rich soup Step 3 Making Pizza Dough (dough for two 10-12 inch pizzas)
Making your own pizza dough by hand is both challenging and satisfying. Home made pizza dough, "from scratch," is without a doubt the single most defining factor that differentiates a great pizza from any other pizza that you will ever have.
1 1/2 cups warm water (105°F-115°F)
1 package (2 1/4 teaspoons) of active dry yeast (check the expiration date on the package)
3 1/2 cups bread flour (can use all-purpose but bread flour will give you a crisper crust)
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon sugar
Step 4 Panning the Prepared Pizza Dough
• Panning the dough is the step where you use a rolling pin or machines to create the pizza base with your dough. There are machines that help you sheet and pan the pizza dough, or you can use the hand tossing method or the rolling pin if you want to do it yourself.
• Depending on the style, size, composition and number of pizzas you choose to make, the methods of sizing, shaping, trimming, and ultimately, panning the pizza dough
Step 5 Topping the Pizza
• First, spread the pizza sauce evenly over the surface of the dough. Spoon the sauce out to the edge of the dough sheet, leaving "un-sauced" about 3/4" to 1" of the dough crust.
• Next, layer the shredded cheese creating an evenly distributed bed of cheese on which to arrange your toppings. (You will use another cup of cheese for finishing off the top of the pizza.)
• From this point on, let your eyes, nose, creativity and taste buds take over to add other toppings to your pizza.
• Some toppings, (fresh vegetables, certain cheeses and fatty meats), are higher in moisture and fat content and you have to take this into account when you use them, to ensure your pizza doesn't turn out soggy. Pizza Ingredients
Cornmeal (to slide the pizza onto the pizza stone)
Mozzarella or Parmesan cheese, shredded
Mushrooms, thinly sliced
Bell peppers, stems and seeds removed, thinly sliced
Italian sausage, cooked ahead
Chopped fresh basil
Pepperoni, thinly sliced
Onions, thinly sliced
Step 6 Baking the Pizza
The final step is to bake to pizza. When you oven is at the right temperature place a prepped pizza in the center of the middle rack to allow for maximum air circulation around the pan.
Make adjustments to your baking process one at a time until you've found the perfect balance of rack position, temperature and baking time to suit your oven.
Signs to look for that the pizza is ready are:
- The cheese has melted on top and is beginning to brown,
- The crust edge has browned, from a medium to a golden brown, and,
- Carefully lift the edge of the pizza to inspect its bottom. The bottom dough should be evenly browned.
If these signs are evident, your pizza is done!
