How To Create The Perfect Pizza [VIDEO]

Create the Perfect PizzaWhat makes the perfect pizza? An Alive & Kickin’ High Gluten Dough Ball hand-formed into a crust of ideal thickness? Absolutely. Sauce spread edge-to-edge? Yes! Plenty of delicious toppings? Bring it.

All of these are certainly top contenders, but what really makes the perfect pizza is the bake.

Paying attention to time and temperature is key in achieving the perfect bake. Slip up on one or the other, and your pizza will let you know. Look for these telltale signs:

  • Underbaked: Crust is pale and not crisp; dough underdeveloped and gummy
  • Overbaked: Crust is dark and cheese is burnt, bottom is very dark and bitter 

Get both time and temperature just right, though, and your crust will be golden brown with a crisp top and an airy, lightly chewy interior. The perfect pizza!
