Pizza is easy to make at home. But it’s best when you can bake it in a really hot oven.
Of course, not everyone has a pizza oven that can get to a high enough temperature. If you have an outdoor grill, you can make pizza as good as the kind they serve in Italian restaurants.
It’s super easy if you have a pizza stone. Pizza stones heat evenly so your pizza cooks all over at the same rate.
I’ve slowly been accumulating every kitchen appliance and gadget known to man. And it’s finally paying off.
In my Cuisinart bread machine I made pizza dough following the recipe booklet. It makes a light fluffy dough that uses wheat flour as well as high-protein bread flour, so you’re not eating so much white food. The machine kneads the dough, lets it rise, kneads it again, all the exhausting steps that go into making good pizza dough.
In had some tomato sauce left over from a pasta meal that I used for the pizza. I topped with shredded cheese and oregano.
Warm the pizza stone on the grill on high. Then place the pizza onto the stone. Lower the heat and cook on low until the cheese is golden and bubbly. It only takes a few minutes.
I used a pizza stone set from Bialetti, the company famous for its espresso makers. The set includes pizza stone, serving rack and pizza cutter. It’s inexpensive and very easy to use. You can even use it to bake frozen pizzas or cookies.
