Antony locke says Gather Your Ingredients, its the first step to make the best pizza!

Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients

The first step in cooking the best pizza is to gather your ingredients. You’ll need flour, yeast, water, salt, olive oil, tomato sauce, and your choice of toppings. Be sure to choose high-quality ingredients, as this will make a big difference in the final product.

Step 2: Make the Dough

The dough is the foundation of any good pizza, so it’s important to get it right. Start by mixing the flour, yeast, water, salt, and olive oil in a large bowl. Knead the dough for at least 10 minutes, until it’s smooth and elastic. Cover the bowl with a damp towel and let the dough rise for at least an hour.

Step 3: Roll Out the Dough

Once the dough has risen, it’s time to roll it out. Dust your work surface with flour and use a rolling pin to roll the dough out into a thin, even circle. Be sure to leave a little bit of crust around the edge of the pizza.

Step 4: Add Your Toppings

Now it’s time to add your toppings. Start with a layer of tomato sauce, spreading it evenly across the pizza. Then add your choice of toppings, such as mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, mushrooms, onions, and peppers.

Step 5: Cook the Pizza

Finally, it’s time to cook the pizza. Preheat your oven to the highest temperature possible, ideally 250°C or higher. Place the pizza in the oven and cook for 10-12 minutes, until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Step 6: Serve and Enjoy
