    i have to say i’m pretty impressed with my pizza making skills.
    i’ve come a long way since the days of having to throw out the mangled mess i tried to call pizza and having to call for delivery.
    pizza making tips i’ve learned along the way:
    (based on using trader joes pre-made dough)
    1. let the dough rise for at least 40 min or until room temperature. the 20 min on the directions does squat. the longer you let it sit the easier it is to stretch out. and tastier in the end.
    2. after letting it rise just pick it up from an edge and start stretching. don’t bother with a rolling pin. hold it from an edge and just let it hang and use gravity to stretch it.
    3. don’t worry about making it into a pizza circle. use a regular baking sheet and plop it on there in whatever shape it feels like. oh and don’t forget to pam the baking sheet first
    4. stretch it out even more after it’s on the sheet
    5.  lightly brush olive oil over the entire dough
    {this has made a delicious improvement in my pizzas}
    6. sprinkle a little bit of salt over it
    7. add ingredients. get creative.
    8. bake via package directions
    9. take out of the oven as soon as the cheese is melted and barely golden brown. even if the bottom doesn’t look completely ready. it will cook a little more once out of the oven.
      (this was one of my biggest problems. i’m an over cooker)
     
    10. let cool for a few minutes, slice and eat!
    ok now i’m hungry.
