Essentials for homemade pizza
If you are going to make homemade pizza, you need these essential ingredients:
- Pizza peel – two if you’re making pizza for a crowd
- Pizza stone
- Pizza wheel
- Basting brush – for spreading on olive oil, pesto, etc.
If you are very ambitious you can make your own pizza dough. The best flour for making pizza is Antico Molino Caputo. I purchase it through Amazon. Here is the recipe for making pizza dough from Antico Molino Caputo. I make three pizza doughs from this recipe. I use one, and the second one I cover with olive oil, wrap it in saran wrap and place it in the refrigertor to use within a week. The third dough goes in the freezer. You can also make dough with bread flour from the grocery store. I use Joanne Weir’s pizza dough recipe with store purchased flour. Don’t forget to purchase your yeast.
During the summer months, try cooking a pizza on your BBQ grill. Weber.com will show you how this is done: Nine steps to grilling a pizza
