Advice for Making Pizzeria Style Pizza with Pizza Peels

Mar 22, 2008
Even if you're not someone who heads to your local pizzeria every week, you probably love a good slice from time to time. The fact is that pizza isn't just about the meat and the cheese, but it's also about the versatility of the toppings you can put on the top. However, it's hard to copy your favorite deep dish when you're at home -- or is it? When you learn the secrets of the pros, you don't have to keep the local delivery service on speed dial.

It Starts with the Best Ingredients

When you want to make something right, you can't skimp on the ingredients. You need to choose top notch brands of your meat, cheese, and pizza style sauce. In addition, you need to choose pizza crust mixes that include the best flours and other additives. Here are some basic tips for getting the best ingredients in your pizza:

- Buy your ingredients the same day -- Instead of buying your toppings and cheeses a few days ahead of time, make sure you're buying everything the same day you're going to put it on top of your pizza. This will ensure that you are getting the maximum flavor.
- Don't get ahead of yourself -- While putting all of the ingredients on the pizza long before it goes into the oven may seem like a good idea, it isn't. You should put your ingredients onto the dough right before it goes into the oven.
- Choose locally grown, in season vegetables -- These are going to have the most flavor. If you can find organic varieties, that's all the better.
- Grate your own cheese -- As soon as the surface of a block of cheese is broken, it can begin to lose flavor. Keep your cheese in block form until right before you put it on the pizza crust.
- Make your own sauce -- While you may need to bribe a pizza maker for a good recipe, store bought sauces aren't usually the best tasting choices.

Cooking Your Pie

If you can toss the dough before you make your pizza, great, but since most of us aren't going to do that, let's skip ahead to the cooking part. For the best results, you will want to use a stone plate to cook your pizza in your oven. This will makes sure the pizza is cooked thoroughly and evenly -- as though you had a bonafide oven. In addition, you might want to try pizza peels instead of using your hands and a prayer. These peels will help lift the pizza off the rack or the stone and keep the toppings in place so that your pizza looks as good as it tastes.

While you might not be able to completely replicate your favorite pizza's flavor, regular practice isn't such a bad thing, is it?
