Rules to make the best homemade pizza
Pizzas are pizzas and nothing else can be its parallel. It is one of the fastest growing industries in the world of food. Statistics on pizza consumption have experienced dramatic increments with the progression of time. However, commercial pizzas are not the only thing we can enjoy. Homemade pizzas are getting immense popularity with a multitude of recipes showing up every now and then. The best part about homemade food is that we can add our own creativity into it. Nevertheless, here are some rules that must be followed in order to get the best homemade pizza you can ever have:

Handling the dough

It is not necessary to make your own dough at home. Store-bought dough is absolutely fine until and unless it is handled in the right manner. No matter whatever dough you are using, let it come to room temperature. Make sure it is malleable. Also make sure everything the dough touches is floured, including your hands and counter. This is to avoid sticking.

Know when to top

Toppings are of different kinds. Not all of them are to be put at once. This will do nothing but ruin the taste and its presentation. Some green toppings are preferred to cook from the start along with the dough. However, some are added as finishing touches. For instance, fresh basil leaves or paper-thin slices of meat can be added in the end. Sliced asparagus or sautéed mushrooms must be cooked along with the pizza.

Simplicity with the sauce

There is no need to get complicated with the sauces. The simpler the better. Simply get good red sauce. Find good tomatoes. You can either make yourself or get it from the market, but make sure you look over the ingredients. To make white sauce, simply add cream and little bit herbs in it. Whip it in the processor until it gets thick. However, this is not a generalized rule. You can make your own sauces but keep it simple.

Minimal meat

There is no use of having a pizza that is filled excessively with meat. It ruins the originality of pizza. However, it is preferable to layer the pizza with thin cured meats. Add them as a topping. They will melt and add more flavor to it. Make sure pizza is not flooded with pieces of meat. As a matter of general rule: lesser the meat, better the taste.

Purchase a pizza stone

There must be a hot surface to cook the dough. Otherwise it will dry out and your pizza will be ruined. The pizza will not be as crispy as it is supposed to be. You will have to compromise on taste as well. But it is not necessary to have a fancy one. Just get a thicker and typical stone, it will work perfectly. Here were some rules that must be followed when making homemade pizza since it can enhances its taste and the overall presentation.
What are the different kind of pizza flavors?
Pizza is originally an Italian dish but has made its place in the hearts of the people globally. Even though it only consists of three core items: dough, toppings and sauce, the taste it offers is unparalleled. In fact, it has transformed into an industry worth $30 billion, which is an incredible amount. A large number of chefs have now specialized in pizza making and are continually improving themselves to obtain a competitive edge. Nevertheless, pizza itself comes in a variety of flavors. Gone are the days when it used to come in limited amount of flavors committing itself to the old traditions. Now we have countless options to choose from. Here are some of the flavors that people all around the world can enjoy:

Double cheese pizza

This is one of the most popular pizza flavors all across the globe, preferred particularly by vegetarians that comes with a double thick layer of cheese. It is even preferred by cheese lovers. Extra layers of cheese is what makes it appealing, delicious and lip smacking. It fits in perfectly with the definition of pizza since originally they were meant to be ‘cheesy’ in nature.

Gourmet

This is another flavor popular amongst vegetarians where pizza is topped with golden corns and layers full of cheese. It is a unique option to consider because of the additional toppings such as Jalapenos and Black Olives. The reason behind its popularity is the spice added through a variety of veggies. It just enhances the taste to a whole new level.

Peppy paneer

This one is pretty common in the South Asian Cuisine. Paneer was originated in India which is essentially a cheese cube that is produced out of pure milk. It is again preferable amongst vegetarians since it acts as an alternative to meaty items. This flavor of pizza is sprinkled with paneer along with spicy red pepper and crispy capsicum slices. It acts as an amazing enhancement to the overall flavor.

Cheese and BBQ chicken

This is another popular flavor which is well recognized amongst non-vegetarians. The pizza is initially filled with a lot of cheese and then topped with BBQ chicken and this is what makes it extraordinary. BBQ chicken are cut into small pieces and then sprinkled all over the pizza. The flavor is enhanced by adding different vegetables. It is indeed one of the most preferable options all over the world due to its exceptional taste.

Cheese and pepperoni
