Mangia Brick Oven Pizza is always there when you want to order pizza in Oceanport for dinner or lunch, but we also know that many folks like to try their hand at concocting their own creations. We encourage a little experimentation and to make things easier, we thought we’d give you an idea of some of the tools required to make a delicious pizza at home in your own oven.
A scale for pizza? That’s right, this is important for those adventurous chefs who want to make their own pizza dough from scratch. Measuring cups and spoons aren’t accurate enough if you want your dough to be consistent. Make sure that the one you buy has a big enough weight capacity and has an easy-to-read digital display.
This is an important tool in any baker’s arsenal. This scraper will help you gather up those random bits of dough that don’t want to come up from your counter, and even clean up all the leftover flour with ease. This versatile tool can also help you collect chopped up ingredients like peppers, onions, and garlic to put into a pot before you bake them. If you find one with a sharp blade, then it can also help you split large balls of dough to make personal pizzas.
A Baking Steel
This item is the next-generation of baking tool after the baking stone. It’s better for getting crispy, charred crusts on your pizza due to greater conductivity and volumetric heat capacity. They’re also more durable than baking stones because they’re generally made from steel so you’ll get more use out of them.
Wood & Metal Peel
These are the items that you’re sure to see at our pizza restaurant serving Oceanport. These flat shovel-like tools are synonymous with pizza places, and while many people try to go with one metal-blade pizza peel, it’s good to have a wooden peel too for dealing with raw dough. That’s because uncooked pizza dough is more likely to stick to metal and make it tough to launch the pizza with toppings into the oven without spilling them and making a mess.
These are all the basic tools you need to get started at home so go have some fun. Contact Mangia Brick Oven Pizza today if you want to order pizza at (732) 578-9000.
