My Mom makes the BEST homemade pizza, hands down, in the world. It is my favorite meal ever, but unfortuntately I’ve yet to fully master the fine art of making it on my own. Hers is light years better than pizza place pizza, and definitely healthier-especially if you serve it with a nice crunchy green salad. It also helps if you don’t eat three quarters of a whole pie by yourself, which I’ve been known to do (it seems smaller than a regular pizza, I swear!) Any homemade pizza aficionados out there have tips for me? I tried my hand at making my own the other day-it was good, but not nearly as photogenic as my Mom’s:
PS-Here’s a great instructional video on the fine art of at-home pizza making from Melissa Clark (one of my favorite chefs). I used this while making my own, and it was really helpful. The part where she tells you that you can bake the pizza on an overturned baking sheet was especially helpful to me when I opened up my brand new pizza stone and discovered that it was cracked straight down the middle! Good times.
