  5. Put the finished pizza on a flat horizontal surface, so you can cut it as evenly as possible. The layout on a wooden board or tea towel.
  6. To correctly determine if the pizza is done, make sure the cheese is completely melted and golden brown. The edge of the base should be slightly ruddy, and if you raise the bottom of the pizza a little, then the dough should have a uniform brownish color.
  7. To make your pizza taste as fresh as possible, use different herbs and spices: a mixture of Italian herbs, garlic powder, sesame seeds, etc.
  8. Pre-grease the base ready for baking with a small amount of olive oil, then it will absorb its aroma and taste very pleasant.
  9. Remember to dust the work surface with flour when rolling. Always check the thickness so that the dough is not too thin.
  10. Roll out the dough from the center to the edge, so it is evenly distributed.
  11. If the rolled base is larger than the pallet, you can cut off the excess with a knife or simply roll it up with a “tube”, but then the edge will be thick. You can also use curly scissors or edging tins to make the pizza grooved.
  12. Some vegetables, like carrots, zucchini, broccoli, require preliminary heat treatment, otherwise, the dough will not bake, but will remain raw. Onions, mushrooms, spinach, and bell peppers contain a lot of moisture and the dough can be sticky. Therefore, lightly fry (until half cooked) these products, and drain the excess liquid.
