Tips for baking pizza in an outdoor pizza oven

Baking pizzas is basically easy. Nevertheless, it is always useful to keep some things in mind to make pizza baking even easier.

Tip 1: get the pizza stone hot

Get the pizza oven as well as the pizza stone hot. If the pizza stone is not hot enough, you won't get a crispy base. But if the pizza stone is too hot, the base will burn and the pizza will not be cooked enough. Sprinkle some flour on the stone when you think it is hot enough. If the flour turns brown within 30 seconds, the pizza stone is hot enough!

Tip 2: Using flour

Don't use too much, but also not too little flour. Prepare the pizza on a surface with a small layer of flour on it. Too much flour on the base? Wipe it off with a kitchen paper.

Tip 3: crispy pizza base

The good temperature of the pizza oven and the stone will make the base crispy. Do not use baking paper and, if necessary, turn the pizza halfway through the baking time for an evenly baked base.
