  1. 1-20oz. Portland Pie pizza dough
  2. 1-pizza stone, pizza screen or pan
  3. 8oz pizza sauce
  4. 10oz diced or shredded pizza cheese
  5. Flour or corn meal
  6. Pan spray

Making a great pizza crust requires two things: high quality ingredients mixed to exact specifications (that’s our job) and using a properly proofed pizza dough (that’s up to you). Our doughs are placed in the refrigerated deli section while they are still frozen. Ideally, the dough should be used 3-5 days after this transfer. How can you tell if the dough is ready to be used? Basically, you need to see evidence that the yeast in the product has been activated. They should be very soft, and have filled up approximately a third of the bag they are in. After you have taken one home, you can keep it in your refrigerator until the dough is ready to be stretched, or you can speed up the process by leaving it out (but still in the bag) at room temperature for an hour or two.

When your dough is nice and soft, you’re ready to go. Preheat your oven to 475 degrees. Put a small handful of flour or cornmeal on a clean counter top and then remove the dough from the bag. Dredge the dough in the flour, front and back, so the dough will not stick to your hands as you stretch it. To do this, use your palms and finger tips, or a rolling pin, flipping the dough over a couple of times. After that, you can stretch the dough by hand to your desired size.

If you are using a pizza screen or pizza pan, apply pan spray before laying the dough down. For pizza stones, spread a little extra flour or cornmeal on the stone. This will keep the dough from sticking to your baking surface. Apply your sauce, cheese and toppings. Brush a small amount of olive oil or vegetable oil to the edges of the dough. Bake 8-10 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.
