Combine Different Cheeses

This experiment is definitely worth it. Hard cheese can add some depth to your pizza, low-moisture mozzarella perfectly melts, and small chunks of fresh mozzarella add great texture.

Avoid Using Pre-Shredded Cheese

No matter how convenient they are pre-shredded cheeses never melt as great as a freshly shredded cheese. This is because they have additives to prevent them from clumping.

Use the Right Amount of Sauce

Remember that pizza sauce is just a condiment and it should complement other ingredients. Don’t add too much. ¼ cup of sauce is all you need for a 12-inch pizza.

Try Not to Overload the Toppings

Balance is key! The more ingredients you choose, the less of each you should use.

Protect Delicate Ingredients From Burning

While some toppings are even tastier when crispy, there are many delicate ingredients that you might need to hide under the cheese to prevent them from burning or drying out. Mushrooms, for example.

Cook at Maximum Heat

Does your crust turn out cakelike? High heat can help with this problem. Also, be sure to preheat your oven for a long time before cooking your pizza.

Give a Final Flourish

Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
