If you’re making the dough for pizza
How do you make the perfect Greek pizza? Dough for pizza that was created from scratch. We’ve perfected a few other pizza doughs over the years, but our go-to for crafting exceptional artisan pizza remains the original. When using a pizza stone, it achieves the greatest results. A thin-crust pan pizza, a huge sheet pan pizza, or all three may be prepared using our alternative dough preparation techniques. These are the many pizza crusts that may be ordered:
- Best Pizza Dough: For the gold standard in pizza dough, nothing beats the best. Pizzas made with this dough are medium in size and are best cooked on a pizza stone. The dough may be easily transferred to the stone with the use of a pizza peel (see below).
- Thin Crust Pizza Dough: Rolling out the dough for a thin crust pizza instead of stretching it is what makes this version of the recipe the easiest.
- Baked Pizza Crust: Do you have a pizza oven? Your search for the perfect dough recipe ends here.
- The Ideal Pan Pizza: Use a cast-iron skillet to bake your pizza. It may take a little longer, but you won’t need any specialised equipment. Gets you one medium pizza.
- Best-Ever Sheet Pan Pizza: This recipe for the best pizza ever made on a sheet pan yields enough dough for three standard pizzas, so it’s great for feeding a party.
Make your own pizza sauce, please
You know what makes this pizza really Greek? Topping it all off with homemade pizza sauce! Use store-bought sauce if you must, although preparing your own is much preferred. It has a wonderful taste! The following is essential information:
- Tomatoes and garlic cooked over an open fire are a culinary alchemy. You just need a taste to proclaim its greatness. Canned tomatoes that have been fire roasted have a distinct sweetness and smokiness. They contribute significantly to the taste and should be sought for. A growing number of stores are stocking them, and you may find them beside the canned tomatoes.
- Simply throw everything into a blender and wait 5 minutes. Throw everything in a blender and pulse until smooth; no need to boil. One of our most popular online recipes is this one.
Appliances for baking pizza
The following equipment is used for cooking the conventional pizza dough recipe. If you choose one of the aforementioned recipes for pan pizza or sheet pan pizza, you won’t need any additional equipment.
- Pizza stone: A pizza baked on a pizza stone is perfectly crisp on the exterior and chewy on the interior because of the high cooking temperatures. Check out our suggested pizza stone and read more on its maintenance below!
- Wooden pizza peel: The pie is transferred to the hot stone in the oven using a peel, which is a flat, flat-sided paddle. We suggest either this normal pizza peel or this pizza conveyor peel.
