We’ve found the secret to the best homemade pizza.
Really. I’m not pulling your leg.
Joe and I have been making homemade pizza for a little while now, and we’ve always liked it. The pizza is healthy, and we top it with all sorts of different things.
Sometimes our pizza is really great, and sometimes it’s just okay.
We figured out why just this week.
It’s the garlic.
We always buy fresh garlic, but sometimes we forget to put it on the crust before the sauce and the toppings. It makes a huge difference in the finished pizza.
Don’t even think about using garlic powder. It’s not even close to the same thing.
To get perfect pizza, press it onto your naked pizza crust, and then use a knife or spreader to smear it around onto the whole crust.
What’s that, Dear Reader? You don’t have a garlic press?
Go buy one. I’m not kidding. You can get one at the grocery store or almost any other store with kitchen stuff. You should not have to pay more than $10. I have a fancy overpriced one from The Pampered Chef, and it was $17, I think.
Top the crust as normal. You can spread spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce, Ranch dressing, barbecue sauce, or whatever you like on top. Toss a little shredded cheese on top of the sauce, then your toppings, and a bunch more cheese. Bake as directed.
