Rachael Ray's Guide to Making Delicious Pizza at Home
Learn Rachael's secrets for making restaurant-worthy pizza at home with just a few simple ingredients.
This recipe has a little something for every taste or mood, all on one pizza. Scatter the toppings evenly on the pizza, or section them into four quadrants: plain cheese and basil; ham; mushroom; and artichoke and olive.
"00" flour is a very finely milled Italian flour that is favored for making pizza dough. Look for it at Italian markets and specialty foods stores.
These are a flavorful snack or starter--and also make a great pizza topping.
For even more tomato flavor, quarter cherry or grape tomatoes and sprinkle them on the pizza before baking.
Naples Pizza Sauce
Simmering, which gives you a somewhat thicker sauce, is an optional step here. Many pizza professionals use the tomatoes straight from the can and hand-crush them.
Pizza Sauce with Balsamic Vinegar
This sweet, tangy sauce is fantastic on pizzas topped with meat or mushrooms. It also makes a great dipper for garlic toast or bruschetta.
Hot Soppressata Pizza
Red onions and flat-leaf parsley give this spicy pie a bite of crunch and freshness.
Pizza with Roasted Garlic, Potato, Sage, Fontina & Truffle
The combo of earthy sage, rich fontina, and thinly sliced potatoes is really delicious! Instead of tomato sauce, mix roasted garlic with EVOO and slather it on the dough.
