DIY: How To Make A Killer Pizza

Pizza is one of the easiest meals to cook. You can be as creative as you want to be with ingredients. It’s entirely open to interpretation. But first you need the right tools for the job:


1. Awesome Ingredients

An empty pizza pie is like a blank sheet of paper; it’s full of endless potential. Local veggies and meats offer fresh taste that will put any restaurant with a 30-minute delivery to shame. Be willing to think outside the box. If you’re looking for a great sauce, try our PRZ Tomato Sauce. Or if you’re feeling risky, one of the best pizzas we’ve ever had used a mustard sauce as the base. Forget cheddar and mozzarella for cheese. Ever had smoked gouda on a pie? It’s divine. If you can dream it, you can make a pizza out of it.


2. Baking Stone

Stone baked pizzas define delicious. A stone base absorbs the heat of the oven and directly transfers that heat up through the crust resulting in the best dough you will ever eat. A baking stone recreates all the necessary elements of a stone oven at a fraction of the price. Besides pizza, these things can be used for a wide variety of baking like cookies, bread, and anything else that uses dough.


3. Pizza Peel

Those big wooden spatulas pizzerias use to take the pies in and out of the oven actually have a name: pizza peels. While it might seem like overkill at first to use such a gaudy piece of wood to simply slide a pizza into the oven, these things are pie savers when it comes to getting them out. And if nothing else they make for a great comedic fly swatter.


4. Slicer

Surprisingly, the pizza slicer comes in handy quite a bit in the kitchen. They make it incredibly easy to slice things in long straight lines and they’re a lot safer than knives. Sure, they can be unwieldy at first, but after enough practice you’ll be slicing and dicing like you’ve been slinging pies in New York your whole life.


5. Wood-Fired Pizza

While we stand by our comments above about the benefits of cooking a pizza on a stone, we can’t overlook the world of wood-fired pizza. Usually thin and crispy, the wood-fired pizza is not for amateurs and even the best restaurants sometimes misfire. But that shouldn’t stop you from taking up the challenge, and we’ve found the nifitiest little gadget in the world that can help you do just that. The Kettle Pizza turns your basic kettle grill into a wood-burning oven perfect for pizza. It’s simply ingenious and although a tad expensive we highly recommend it for any man looking to make a unique homemade pizza.
