HOMEMADE VS STORE BOUGHT CRUST
We highly recommend making our homemade pizza dough for the perfectly crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside crust. You just really can’t beat it.
If you are nervous about making a homemade dough this recipe is super easy. It actually makes two pizza crusts so you can freeze half for later or make two pizzas. No one every complains about leftover pizza!
Now, we get that it sometimes gets crazy and you want easy. If that’s the case we love this Pillsbury pizza crust in the refrigerator section. You will get a square pizza if you use this crust, but that’s fine!
TIPS FOR A CRISPY CRUST!
One tip is to bake the pizza on the bottom rack of the oven because the crust is closer to the heat source it gets nice and crispy just the way you like it.
We are a big fan of using a pizza stone for our pizza. It makes the pizza crust perfectly crispy on the outside and nice and chewy on the inside. Highly recommend a pizza stone if you don’t have one!
HOW TO REHEAT LEFTOVER PIZZA
I recently started to use my Air Fryer to reheat pizza slices. It gets perfectly crispy and delicious you won’t even know it’s leftovers. I usually use a temperature of 360 degrees F for about 3 minutes depending on how many slices I’m reheating.
Reheating pizza in the oven is another great option. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the pizza on a pan and then place in preheated oven for about 10 minutes or until warmed through and cheese is melted.
Another option to try is using a skillet on the stove top to reheat the pizza. Place your pizza slice in a non-stick skillet over medium-low heat for a couple minutes. When the bottom is crisp add a few drops of water to the pan, turn heat to low and cover it with a lid. After about a minute you’ll have the perfect reheated pizza slice.
