Does anyone have any good tips or recipes for homemade pizza? I plan to start making it soon. Is a pizza stone useful? Are there any other basics I should have? Thanks.

I just posted on another topic in this section about homemade pizza. There is a link to a crust recipe (and the sauce is SO easy!), and some tips on rolling out the dough. We use the pizza blend cheese rather than plain mozzerella. I have two pizza pans-one with the holes on the bottom and one without. The one with the holes works better, and the regular one seemed to make a soggy crust (although I found out later that you have to refrigerate the yeast after it's opened-oops!-so maybe that was the problem!).

I have one of those roll out sheets with circles on it that you can roll your dough on and get it to the right size. What I do is spray it really good with non-stick spray, then plop the dough on there and cover it in the same flour I used in the dough, and this makes it soft and easy to roll out. Once rolled out (bigger than what I need), I set the pan (sprayed with non-stick spray as well) on the dough upside down and flip it over, then peel the sheet off. The extra dough hanging over can be used as a crust. I found out the hard way that you want that extra dough hanging over even if you don't like a crust, because it helps get the peeling started from the sheet. I hope all that made sense. I am learning new stuff every time I make it, so it is nice to pass on what I have learned.

I had never made homemade pizza until going gluten free. Now I make it at least once a week, and it is our favorite meal! Let us know how your first pizza experience goes!
