I love pizza, I mean really love pizza. I could eat pizza 4 to 5 times a week forever and never get sick of it. But I have never been able to make good homemade pizza.
But I have decided, NO MORE! I will make good pizza.
What I have learned so far:
– Do not freeze homemade pizza sauce, it separates and becomes weird.
– Cornmeal adds crunch, but also feels like I am chewing on sand.
– Cast iron over pizza stone. When you have pre-heated your oven, and made your pizza put your pizza in your cast iron skillet for about 3 min or until the olive oil on the crust starts bubbling. Then put it in the oven. You get a nice crisp crust.
– Bake the pizza at 450, for about 7 mins, and then finish it up under the broiler on high. This makes it nice and bubbly and golden, and the toppings scorch a little.
