Pizza Troubleshooting

There are times when you might still have a soggy bottom (on your pizza!) even when using a pizza stone. Here are some possible reasons for a soggy pizza base:

  • · Too much sauce
  • · The cooking time is not long enough to extract the moisture
  • · Too many fresh vegetables which add to the water content, less is often more on pizzas
  • · Not enough cornflour
  • · Too much oil on the pizza - try adding this later

TANYA TIP: Some pizza chefs prebake the crust before adding the toppings.
