A lot of people love taking pizza. What is more interesting
is that you can prepare your own pizza at the comfort of your home. It is quick
when you make a homemade pizza from dough that is already prepared and it is easy.
You can prefer to make your own dough which will just add some more minutes to
the preparing time. You can roll the dough using a parchment paper to shape
your pizza .However the dough will stick on the paper making it easier to
transfer it to the oven. When cooking, the pizza will release itself from the
parchment paper and you can remove the paper halfway. You will notice that the
parchment will darken in the oven however it doesn’t burn nor catch fire.
Choose the kind of toppings that you love for your pizza. If
you want sausage or mushroom then you will have to cook them before preparing
your pizza. For fresh greens just sprinkle them on the pizza when it is out of
the oven because the residual heat will slightly burn them bringing out their
flavor. The toppings should not exceed a handful for your home pizza because if
it exceeds it will take a longer time for the crust to cook well. You can pile
it with cheese or keep it all to be vegetable for health reasons. The equipment you need are; the pizza stone, pizza peel and a parchment paper.

center and spread it to the edges using the back of the spoon and then pile

the pizza peel on the baking stone .Let it cook for five minutes, rotate it as
you slid the parchment out then bake for the next five minutes until the crust
