5 Easy Steps to Making Pizza
Almost everybody and their grandmother loves pizza. Below are 5 easy steps explaining how to make it.
Step 1: Make the sauce for your pizza. In a skillet, melt butter and olive oil for sauteing garlic and onion. Then, start adding salt, tomatoes, pepper, basil, oregano, and tomato puree. Let it boil and then reduce to a simmer for two hours. Stir every so often and crush the tomatoes with a potato masher as the sauce cooks. When the sauce is as thick as soup, it is done.
Step 2: Make the dough for the pizza. It is difficult to make homemade pizza dough but worth the hard work. When you eat a pizza made from scratch, you will really taste the difference and see why it is worth the hard work. Not only will you be able to enjoy the taste of homemade pizza, you will be able to share that with your friends and family.
Step 3: Get the dough ready to go into the pan. To do this, you have to have a rolling pin or a machine to make the dough into crust. You can use a machine to turn the dough into a sheet of dough or you can toss it by hand. You could also use a rolling pin and do it by hand. The type, the size, and the style of the pizza is going to affect how you go about turning the dough into the actual pizza crust.
Step 4: Start putting toppings on the pizza. First, you need to spread the sauce on the dough until it is covered. Leave about an inch or so of dough around the edges without the sauce. Then, spread cheese on top of the sauce in an even layer. The cheese will be the base that you put the toppings on top of. You want to save cheese to cover the toppings. Now is where you can get creative with the pizza toppings. There are many different types of toppings you can use including vegetables, cheese, and meats. Make sure you do not use too many toppings that are high in fat on your pizza or it will end up soggy.
Step 5: Now you're ready to bake the pizza. Heat your oven to the correct temperature and put the pizza in the middle of the center rack so air circulates around the pan. You may have to change the way you bake the pizzas until you get it right.
