Making Pizza Dough: Summary

Making Pizza from this dough is fun! It works well, you can't really go wrong with it. You can make it slightly firmer with slightly more flour, this will give you crunchier pizza and less handing stress. When handling the dough balls and rolling out your pizzas, be sure to use pizza grade semolina, We use a bed of semolina to help spin our dough out by hand. However, you do whatever works for you. 

Make sure you leave some excess dough around the edges for a good crust.

When it comes to your pizza oven, you need a really hot base. If you do not have a wood fired pizza oven, make sure you use a thick pizza stone in your oven as a base. Your oven should be on full power. Let it warm for at least an hour to get best results.

  1. Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for inexperienced blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
