Hello, pizza lovers! We at Stone Sisters Organics are excited to guide you through the delightful journey of crafting the perfect healthy pizza right in your own kitchen. Using our Happie Organic Sprouted Spelt Crusts, we'll show you how to create a pizza that’s not only scrumptious but also good for your body and the planet. Let’s get started!
Step 1: Select the Ideal Base
Every great pizza begins with a great crust, and our Happie Organic Sprouted Spelt Crusts are just that. Packed with nutrients and boasting a delicious nutty flavor, these crusts are the ideal starting point for your healthy pizza adventure.
Step 2: Sauce it Up
Choosing the right sauce is crucial. We love a classic homemade tomato sauce, but don't hesitate to get inventive! Whether it’s a zesty pesto or a creamy garlic sauce, spread it evenly over the crust, leaving a small border for that perfectly crispy edge. (If you are using a red sauce, we recommend starting with the cheese first then the sauce).
Step 3: Choose Your Cheese Wisely
Here's where you can personalize your pizza with your cheese choice. Whether you’re a fan of organic mozzarella cheese or prefer a plant-based cheese alternative, the key is to find a cheese that melts well and complements your toppings.
Step 4: Top it Off
Now, let your creativity shine with toppings! Load up on veggies like bell peppers, onions, artichokes, spinach, and other yummy toppings like mushrooms, and olives for a nutrient-rich feast. Or, experiment with unique toppings like roasted sweet potatoes or caramelized onions. Just remember, a little goes a long way – too many toppings can overwhelm your pizza.
Step 5: Bake to Perfection
A hot oven is the secret to a perfectly crispy crust. Preheat your oven to 450°F (232C). Bake your pizza directly on the middle rack or on a preheated pizza stone for 10-12 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the cheese is bubbly.
Step 6: The Final Flourish
After taking your pizza out of the oven, this is the perfect time to add any fresh toppings, like a handful of arugula, a sprinkle of fresh basil, or a pinch of red pepper flakes for an extra kick. Cut and serve.
Expert Tips for Your Pizza Masterpiece
- Simplicity is Key: Avoid overloading your pizza; a few well-chosen toppings are better than too many.
- Flavor Play: Don't shy away from combining sweet and savory, like a touch of honey or apple slices.
- Rotate for Even Cooking: Halfway through baking, rotate your pizza for a uniform bake.
- The Right Tools: Consider investing in a pizza peel and stone to elevate your pizza-making game.
