Did someone say Pizza?! I suggest you all be prepared with a tissue to wipe your face because this article is going to leave you drooling! Though making pizza may seem a little tedious and technical, here are a few pizza toppings that can be added over an already cooked pizza and add a twist to your plain margarita!
Basil is a delicate herb that goes on the pizza right after it has come out of the oven. A quick tip would be to wait for five minutes after the pizza is out of the oven and then top it with fresh basils. This trick not only keeps the basil fresh but also prevents this beautiful herb from becoming soggy and curled up. Now I know that waiting to eat a pizza is even more difficult than making one, but this wait is surely going to be worth it!
To make your pizza even more fresh you can add some freshly chopped parsley. Though some may feel that this is too bitter for their taste buds, it actually helps uplifting the flavor of the pizza. However, keep in mind to chop the parsley very finely before adding it to the pizza.
There is nothing more beautiful than a cheese pizza with fresh cherry tomatoes on it. But beware, this is where it gets dicey. Unless you want your tomatoes to become mushy you do not want to make them go through so much heat. While using fresh tomatoes on pizza make sure to put them after the pizza has been cooked. This way, they are still beautifully round and red, recognizable and not mushy!
Here is a slightly out of your comfort zone suggestion. Use sweet onions as pizza toppings but do not bake or pre cook them. Dice them small and put these babies on pizza just when it is out of the over and the cheese is still hot. They can burn quickly and become soggy when baked or cooked, so it is best you add them on your pizza right when it is hot and cheese is bubbling to retain the crunch!
There can never be too much cheese in a pizza. After taking out your pizza fresh from the oven, if you are not satisfied with the cheese content, don’t worry this trick is a life saver. Grate some parmesan cheese, when the pizza is still steaming hot. This topping will not only fulfill your cheese cravings but may also help absorb the extra grease off the pizza!
