Pizza night is the best night of the week and making your own is simpler than you think. However, there are plenty of tiny steps that could trip you up, or make things much more complicated than they need to be. Avoid these common pitfalls to achieve a perfect homemade pizza.
Most grocery stores sell all manner of pre-made pizza crusts, but taking this shortcut will make your final product less-than-stellar.
So, what can you do? Making your own crust is easier than you probably think, especially if you have some sourdough starter running. A simple sourdough crust will be firm enough to stand up to all the toppings you could possibly want to pile on, but if you don't have the time, there's a few other options.
Consider calling your favorite pizza joint to ask if they'll sell you a bit of their dough, or head to the grocery store and think outside the box. Pick up some naan and use that for your crust, or get a nice loaf of French bread and make French bread pizzas. All of these are better options than a disappointing pre-made crust, we promise.
