Points dealt with:

Quality ingredients: Gourmet pizza requires fresh, high-quality ingredients. Opt for wheat-type flour “0”, buffalo mozzarella, San Marzano tomatoes, Kalamata olives and other selected ingredients.

Perfect dough: Prepare the dough by following a reliable recipe and giving it time to rise properly. Experiment with different flours and proportions to find the ideal texture.

authentic sauce: Make a homemade tomato sauce using San Marzano tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, fresh basil and salt. Avoid commercial sauces, which often contain additives and preservatives.

Quality cheese: Use fresh and authentic buffalo mozzarella. You can also experiment with other gourmet cheeses like gorgonzola, pecorino or parmesan to give a special touch to your pizza.

Addition of innovative ingredients: Gourmet pizza offers endless customization possibilities. Experiment with ingredients like porcini mushrooms, Parma's ham, arugula, truffle oil, smoked salmon and more.

Balance of flavours: Make sure you balance the ingredients to create a harmonious combination of flavours. Avoid overloading the pizza with too many toppings, otherwise the flavors may coat each other.

Perfect cooking: Heat the oven to the highest temperature possible and use a baking stone or baking sheet to get a crispy base. Experiment with different cooking times to find the sweet spot.

Attractive presentation: The presentation of gourmet pizza is as important as the taste. Add the final ingredients, such as fresh basil leaves or parmesan flakes, just before serving for a touch of elegance.

Pairings with wines and beers: Explore different pairing options to accompany your gourmet pizza. Red wines such as Chianti or Barolo and craft beers can further enhance the gastronomic experience.
