To finally uncover all the secrets of cooking pizza, let's listen to tips from the chef. Let's start with flour: it should be only white wheat varieties. The ideal structure of the base is obtained if you add some semolina to the flour. It is desirable to use mineral water, naturally, without gas.
When kneading dough, you should press it well with your knuckles - it should not spring. It is better if the dough is prepared in advance and let it stand for ten or twelve hours.
Do not lay out the filling with a thick layer and pour it well with cheese, so that there are no burnt vegetables on top. Semi-hard cheeses, which quickly melt, are better suited for pizza. In the process of baking, keep the pizza from opening the oven.
