How to make pizza in your own kitchen
The word villas are back and more than ever, you can make your own pizza with a few simple ingredients: flour, eggs, cheese, and water.
But if you’re not ready to tackle the challenges of making pizza at home, here are the basics you need to know to start.
Filling your doughWith a good dough you can cover your pizza with delicious toppings like onions, tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, and cheese.
Start by making a dough that is thicker than the dough you’re going to bake in.
For example, you might need to make a dough you’ll use to cover your bread.
Next, roll the dough into a tight ball.
It should be as long as the length of your pizza.
For this recipe, I made mine 6 1/2-inch-thick.
Place the ball of dough in a bowl and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt.
Next wrap the dough in plastic wrap and place in a large pot.
Bring the water to a boil and cook the dough until it reaches a temperature of 195 degrees F. Drain on paper towels and let it cool.
After the dough cools to room temperature, place the dough back into the bowl and roll it into a ball.
The dough should be the same length as the pizza.
Place the ball in the bowl of a standing mixer.
Add the egg, flour, cheese and salt to the bowl.
Using a wooden spoon, roll dough into 1 1/4-inch rounds.
Place each round on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Cover with plastic wrap to keep the edges from getting soggy.
Bake at 325 degrees F for about 20 minutes, until the top of the crust is golden brown.
Repeat until all the toppings are melted.
Cool completely before serving.
