💡 Prefect Cheese Crust Pro Tip

Closely monitor the cheese crusts’ edges to ensure they achieve a desirable golden brown color, indicating optimal crispiness. Be cautious not to overcook, as this can result in burnt cheese.

Step 4 Allow the cheese to cool and harden, then drizzle with mayo before serving.

💨 Cooling Pro Tip

For a quicker cooling process, consider placing the pizzas in the refrigerator for 3-5 minutes after baking. This helps the cheese to set and ensures an ideal texture.

Paring Recommendations

Elevate your dining experience by pairing with a crisp green salad dressed with Miso Salad Dressing. The refreshing combination of fresh greens and umami-rich dressing complements the rich flavors of the pizza.

And for a delightful beverage choice, savor the unique taste of an Iced Matcha Latte. This creamy and earthy green tea latte provides a satisfying contrast to the savory notes of your pizza, creating a well-rounded meal that’s both delicious and fulfilling.
