    Default Home made pizza

    Random quick question.

    I usually buy my pizza bases but time I'm making them. Only thing is the recipe doesn't say to precook the base or not? So, do you precook normally? How long/hot.

    If not then is it the same as pre made bases? I normally do about 8 mins at 230•

    Thanks in advance

    I don't precook my bases - I just roll out the dough, put on the toppings and then put in the oven.

    I hope you enjoy your dinner. I love homemade pizza.

    No I don't pre-cook, just put the toppings on 😊 I have no idea about the time though, probably just until the cheese melts and starts to brown!

    If you're using homemade dough (with yeast) make sure your oven is really hot (I put up to 250) so the dough cooks quickly and is not soggy on the bottom. Use a pre-heated pizza stone/flat oven tray if you have one. I make the pizzas on baking paper, then slide directly onto the heated stone...yumm! Takes 8-10mins to cook..

    Thanks ladies, I had a feeling that was the case, just wanted to check. Will be using a pizza stone.

    Can't wait and will be getting DH and kids involved, diy pizzas I think!

    Yay! Awesome!
    We regularly do homemade pizza night - I just chop stuff and everyone rolls their own dough and decorates
    The great thing about pizza is that it really doesn't have be unhealthy...I use pumpkin and zucchini and spinach, leftover meats (roast chicken/lamb) etc. I often sub in some danish feta instead of regular cheese. Or use wholemeal pita bread instead of dough...great quick work night meal. Yummm! !

    I precook the base for five minutes on 180 just so its not too floppy when I put the toppings on. But it doesn't really make a difference.
