What Makes a Good Pizza?

There are 6 important parts to pizza making, crust, sauce, cheese, toppings, freshness, and customer service.

We will discuss it one by one however the quality of pizza will depend on the ability and skill of the pizza maker.

Making Pizza Crust

Pizza places make their pizza crusts with a variety of different ingredients. Some ingredients include flour, water, yeast, and salt. They can also make crusts from bread (or cracker) dough that has been allowed to rise.

Then they add your favourite toppings, allowing the flavours to mix and mingle, and cook it in a pizza pan or on a cookie sheet at approximately 375 degrees Fahrenheit for about ten minutes with the oven door propped open slightly with a wooden spoon.

Pizza Sauce

Pizza sauce is the key to making a delicious pizza. The right sauce can make a good pizza great while adding the wrong one can ruin even the best home made crust.

Pizza sauce is an essential ingredient that should provide a balance of flavours and taste. There are countless different recipes for pizza sauce and many people enjoy incorporating their unique ingredients to add even more flavours.

To make the perfect pizza sauce most restaurants start by cooking a basic tomato paste with olive oil and fresh garlic. Then they add this mixture to canned tomatoes and add basil, oregano, salt and pepper.

Grating with Cheese

Pizza cheese (or mozzarella) is one of the most widely used pizza cheeses. The reason why most pizza places use this cheese is that it has a fantastic flavour.

It can be chewy and elastic or stretchy depending on how you prefer your cheese.

There are multiple ways to make pizza cheese and some methods are better than others. However, just grating some cheese on the top of the toppings is a standard way to make cheesy deliciousness.

Final Toppings

There are many varieties of pizza and the number of toppings can vary, but traditionally it has some combination of mozzarella, Parmesan cheese, sausage, pepperoni and olives as well as tomato sauce or purée.

Pepperoni, sausage and Mushroom. Don’t forget onions, olives or green peppers. Traditional pizza fans often have a preference around the crust too, but these days I see more and more people choosing flatbread (or gluten-free options). So the question is, what are your favourite pizza toppings?

Bottom Line

Pizza is a staple of Italian cuisine and one of the most popular dishes in the US. It’s made with a yeasted flatbread, which is covered with tomatoes, cheese, and your favourite toppings. Now with this knowledge, you can try and make your own pizza.
