Tips for the Perfect Pizza

Enjoy the perfect pizza at home, each and every time, with tips from the Woolworths Experts.

Restaurant worthy gourmet pizzas are now possible at home with Woolworths Gold range, made using the finest ingredients. Here, the chefs and experts at Woolworths have compiled their top cooking tips.


Every oven varies slightly. If you're making your own pizza dough, cook it on the highest heat for 13-15 minutes. A pre-cooked base should be cooked at 200 degrees Celsius in a fan-forced oven for 10-12 minutes.

Extra tip: when making chicken pizzas, always use pre-cooked chicken and cook the pizza for the same time as you would any other pizza.

When To Serve

The underside of the base of your pizza should be golden brown and all the cheese should be completely melted.

Which Cheese To Use

Use mozzarella cheese for a traditional chewy, stringy texture, or try buffalo mozzarella for a creamy authentic Italian finish. Create your own unique flavour using a mixture of these cheeses along with your own favourites.

Best Way To Cut Pizza

It's always best to use a pizza cutter. Cut the pizza into quarters first and then cut those quarters in half.

Perfect Topping Combinations

Four cheeses is a classic that never fails. For something a little more fancy, try Portobello Mushroom and Tallegio cheese.

Traditional Italian?? Not from that picture. Toppings overload.
