1)The dough which you make should be very soft and slightly sticky before the first rise, once it is risen then add more more and knead to a soft dough. This ensures that the pizza base stays soft
2)You can cook the base in a low heat so it cooks right into the center.
3)You can store this in fridge for a week and freeze them for more than a month.
