K said that delicious pizza can be tasted only in a pizzeria? If you know some secrets and scrupulously abide by some rules, an ideal tortilla from a dough with different fillings can turn out at home. Use favorite portable pizza ovens.
We have gathered the advice of various chefs, thanks to which home-made pizza will be no worse than the one you try at the restaurant. Or maybe even better who knows.
Mix several types of flour. In addition to wheat, from which we often cook, there are many other types of flour: buckwheat, for example, or corn, or rye. Each of them has its own unique taste, aroma, and color. Thus, for pizza dough, you can mix two varieties of flour: standard wheat and non-standard rye. However, at the same time, they should be added to the dough in a small ratio for example, in a ratio of 4 to 1.
Do not be afraid to experiment with toppings. Pizza dough like a canvas for the artist, you can “draw” anything on it. Therefore, the filling on the test is a complete flight of imagination. The basis can be absolutely any product. The result can be meat, vegetable, fish or even berry-sweet pizza.
Knead the dough with your hands. Of course, food processors can do everything faster and more efficiently. But in the preparation of pizza, tactile sensations are very important. To the touch, you can understand what consistency the dough has and whether it is sufficiently elastic. And these nuances greatly affect the taste of pizza.
Roll the dough with your fists. This method is both cooking and therapy. Firstly, the dough is filled with air and becomes more elastic. And, secondly, such work will perfectly help relieve the accumulated stress.
Preheat the oven in advance. Pizza should be placed only in a red-hot oven, so it is very important to preheat the oven while working with the dough. In a professional wood-burning oven, the temperature reaches 400 degrees, while in a home oven you can heat up to a maximum of 250 degrees. Just do not forget that for pizza 5-7 minutes are enough for the dough and ingredients to brown, so be careful that it does not burn.
Sauce for sides. If you are one of those who do not eat pizza, we recommend pouring some sauce on them or wrapping them with any filling, for example, sausages or Philadelphia cheese. So it will not seem to you that you are eating just a dry piece of dough.
