How to Make 15" Pizza | Tips For Beginners | Ooni Koda 16 - 90 Second Pizza CookHello! Welcome to our learning to cook pizza journey! Today we made a 15" salami pizza in the Ooni Koda 16 Gas-Fired Pizza Oven. This is a real time 90 second pizza cook plus I show the dough stretch process using a mini roller. If you are new to pizza making and outdoor pizza ovens and you haven't made dough before, it's handy to buy some ready made dough from a pizza dough company. It's good for two reasons, the first, you can focus on how to use your new pizza oven without worrying about your dough, it's already prepared and good to go. Second, if you do decide to make your own dough, its handy to compare the stretch and feel of the dough with your own. It's delivered frozen, so all I had to do was defrost it overnight and bring it to a warm room temperature before use. But check the dough ingredients. I would avoid buying dough with added sugar and/or oil for these intense heat ovens. Also, the best tool to use to stretch pizza out if you are having difficulty, is the mini wooden pizza roller. I use mine a lot and it's one of the best pizza tools I've bought. For the pizza cook - heat up the stone until it's about 430c in the centre area of the stone. I rarely burn pizza now (although I have burnt my fair share of them up to this point!) but I did burn one this week and have added it to this video to show how quickly things can go wrong!

There are two reasons why using bought pre-made dough is useful if you are new to pizza making and cooking:
- You can focus on getting to know your new oven without worrying about the quality of your pizza dough
- If you do decide to make your own pizza dough, it’s handy to check the consistency and the cook of the professionally made dough against yours.
If, like me, you have trouble stretching dough out into a large pizza base, there is a super tool that you can use that will save the day! I love the Mini Pizza Roller. These are the reasons why I love using it to make large pizza:
- you can stretch/roll the pizza out easily and thinly up to 16″.
- the roller is not wide like a rolling pin. This allows you to create a crust for your pizza.
To roll out the pizza base without damaging the crust is really simple. All you do is roll out, leaving a small edge all around the outside of the pizza, but don’t roll over the edge. But if you have made a particularly bubbly pizza dough and want to reduce the crust cook size, then gently roll over the edge of the pizza base to reduce the bubbles. You should still have bubbles in your crust when you cook it, you are just reducing the size of them!
The video above shows the whole rolling out process.
