    Pizza - Pasta Tips
Did your Pizza crust come out too soggy ?
Here are some possible reasons why:
• You pre-baked it before adding sauce and toppings.
• Your tomato sauce was too runny.
• You used a lot of fresh vegys (which add moisture) to the toppings.
• Your oven was not hot enough.
• You used too much oil on your pan.

Can I freeze pizza dough (Baked or unbaked)?
Yes, you can freeze pizza dough baked or unbaked. Place your frozen dough on the counter to thaw in the morning and let it reach room temperature while it is still wrapped. I find that the dough that has been frozen and thawed has a nice "yeasty" smell and tastes somewhat like Sourdough.

How do I get my pasta - al dente ?
Leave the pasta in boiling water for 5 to 10 mins or until cooked. Add a little salt to the boiling water. Once cooked, leave it to cool for a few minutes. Do not leave it soaking for too long. Drain the pasta and run it under cool water. Pasta cooked in this manner will remain firm and not soft. Al dente that is.

Al dente is a fancy term for pasta that's fully cooked, but not overly soft. The phrase is Italian for "to the tooth," which comes from testing the pasta's consistency with your teeth.
