There are so many toppings for pizza. What kind of pizza filling do you like?

  1. Pizza mayonnaise (if you prefer to cook with it) is best replaced with sour cream with mashed boiled yolk, adding 1 teaspoon of mustard.
  2. To prevent boiled or fried meat in pizza from losing its aroma and taste, it is not necessary to salt it immediately before cooking or frying, as salt causes the premature release of meat juice. After this, the meat in the pizza may be too tough and tasteless. It is advisable to cook and fry pizza meat shortly before baking it itself.
  3. Before placing the fried meat on the dough, sprinkle it with a few tablespoons of cold water, and put a few slices of butter or margarine on top. In this case, it will preserve the taste of freshly roasted pizza.
  4. Pizza is often made with sausage. For this purpose, it is better to use semi-smoked and boiled sausages with pieces of bacon. The sausage can be replaced with pieces of semi-smoked ham or bacon.
  5. Pizza tomatoes can be cut into thin slices, or peeled and mashed. In order for the skin to easily peel off, immerse them in boiling water for a few seconds, and then immediately in cold water. The peel should be removed from the side opposite the stalk.
  6. The ham for the filling can be replaced with slices of semi-smoked or boiled sausage.
  7. For pizza, it is best to use soft and semi-hard cheese varieties (they melt and bake better).
  8. Mixed minced meat consisting of chicken, pork, and beef can be used as an original and tasty pizza filling.
  9. The cloves of garlic can be cut into thin slices or pressed with special garlic. It is necessary to add garlic to pizza in moderation, since its pungent smell can soak the entire filling, depriving all other ingredients of the aroma.
  10. It is advisable to cook pizza made from fresh vegetables immediately before serving in order to maximize the nutrients of the filling, which decompose when reheated. Therefore, it is better not to reheat pizza with vegetables, but to eat it cold. Store it in the refrigerator for no longer than 2 days.
  11. The readiness of the pizza can be recognized not only by the type of filling but also by the bottom crust of the dough: it should easily separate from the baking sheet.
  12. If after baking you cannot remove the pizza from the pan, place the pan on a towel dampened with cold water and chill slightly as it is. The pizza can then be easily removed from the mold.
