How to Make a Supreme Pizza
Homemade pizza has never been so easy! Just read on for a basic overview of the steps!
- Prepare dough and while it is rising, prep ingredients.
- Top pizza with sauce, toppings and of course cheese.
- Bake until bubbly and browned.
Let pizza sit about 10 minutes before slicing and serving, this keeps the cheese from sliding off.
PRO TIP: Before adding the oil to the prepared pizza dough, poke the surface of both crusts with a fork. This is called “docking” and prevents large bubbles from forming on the crust. It’s what professional pizzaiolos do!
How to Store & Reheat Leftover Pizza
- Nothing tastes better than leftover pizza! Even when it’s cold, it’s great for breakfast or a snack the next day!
- Why not put a leftover slice or two in a lunch box to reheat at school or work?
- Pop a slice in the microwave or toaster oven and reheat until the cheese is melted again. For larger pieces, reheat one piece at a time.
