Making Pizza at home - Ultimate trick

Cook the base for about one minute in the microwave using microwave not convection.

Take it out, apply the sauce, add toppings, add cheese, a bit of olive oil. Do this as fast as you can, not more than 2 minutes. And bake (convection - no more microwave) it for 10-12 minutes or until the cheese is done. Goes with saying that you should have pre-heated the microwave before starting.

One minute of microwave is worth 5-7 minutes of baking without loosing the moisture. You can't do it after making the pizza because then you will loose all the crispness and it will become soggy.  Give it another 30 seconds if you like large air bubble in your pizza. Keep it at 1 minute if you like soft bread like texture. Extend it to 2 minutes if you want it to puff up like a balloon.
