Tips for Crispy Pizza Crust

  • Make sure you use cast iron pan to bake your pizza.
  • Keep your cast iron pan hot when transferring the dough into the pan.
  • Cook in the bottom rack of the oven during the first bake to ensure the base of the pizza gets crispy.
  • Whenever you remove the pan from oven, put the cast iron pan on gas flame to ensure that it doesn't loses its heat.
  • Drizzle olive oil in the cast iron pan before putting the dough, olive oil helps in getting crisp texture.
