This homemade pizza had not one, but TWO glaring errors.
Number 1… the crust didn’t rise. I haven’t used yeast successfully yet. This was my first experience with it. But I thought that you’re supposed to add the yeast to the warm water/sugar/salt, let it do its thing, and THEN add dry ingredients. This recipe didn’t do it that way, so maybe that’s why. Or maybe my yeast was dead. I’ll try something else later and we’ll see.
Number 2… you know how most pizza sauce has a bit of sweetness? I added sugar to my sauce, but I added WAY too much. Not a fan. Oops.
The husband said, “Well, it’s not totally disgusting.”
Anyway, do you have a failproof yeasty pizza crust recipe? Preferably something that won’t take an hour and a half to do? What about turning spaghetti sauce into pizza sauce? AND… I used mozzarella cheese, which I love, but it didn’t do that stretchy pizza-cheese thing when I bit into it. How is that achieved?
I love pizza and I’d love to know how to make a delicious restaurant-quality pizza at home, but this was NOT it. Please help me!
