In the past when we’ve made pizza dough, we’ve run into some issues. The dough was too sticky, didn’t rise well, or when we tried to stretch it out it kept tearing apart. However, these mistakes taught us many valuable lessons.
- If your dough is too sticky, gradually add more flour.
- If your dough doesn’t rise well, it’s probably due to the yeast. Make sure your water is not too hot and not too cold: it should feel like warm bath water. Secondly, don’t use old yeast that has expired.
For the sauce, we typically just buy a jar of pizza sauce from the store. However, this time we used a healthy 7 vegetable sauce, recipe by Jamie Oliver. It’s a great way to add an extra nutritional punch to tomato sauce. We made a full batch of this sauce last week. It tastes pretty good on top of pasta, and even better on top of our homemade pizza.
