Making your homemade pizza is like an art that you have to do over and over again in order to master it, even after the mastery you might still need some tweakings here and there just to suit your needs.

The Pizza Crust

There are various types of pizza crusts but my favorite is the thick and chewy crust but this pizza dough recipe that I’m sharing today can also work for the thin and crispy crust it just depends on how flat or how thick you layout your crust.

I also have a 20 minutes pan pizza recipe no-knead and done on the stovetop so if you are in a pinch and still want pizza, you can go for this. It will still satisfy your pizza cravings!

All you need for an awesome pizza are quality dough, Tomatoes, Toppings, and cheese coupled with the right tools and a fair amount of practice – The more you make pizza, the more you learn about the tips and techniques that will suit your taste.

Pizza Dough

A good pizza starts with a good dough. When making Pizza, the wetter your dough is, the lighter and crispier your Pizza will be. However, you don’t need to make it overly wet. It needs to be well manageable.

Pizza Toppings – What type of cheese should I use?

Be flexible and creative with your pizza toppings. In this recipe, I used pepperoni, pineapple, beef, sausage, and cheese but there are a whole lot of other toppings that you can use.

I like to use a combination of low moisture mozzarella cheese and provolone cheese for a stretchy cheesy pizza but you are free to also use the choice of mozzarella cheese you like – fresh or low moisture.

I prefer the low moisture mozzarella for a traditional homemade pizza like this one because the fresh mozzarella has high moisture content and this might affect your crust (or the whole pizza in general).

The low moisture mozzarella cheese has little moisture and it has the ability to adhere to your crust (toppings) because it is aged which makes it stickier when melted.

Notes:

  1. If the dough is too much for you for a single-use feel free to store it in the freezer and thaw it whenever you are ready to use it.
  2. I always use low moisture Mozzarella Cheese to prevent water/moisture on my pizza but if you choose to use fresh mozzarella just try as much as possible to drain off the excess Milk/Water.
