How To Make 15 Inch Pizza – Pizza For Beginners

After buying the Ooni Koda 16 pizza oven, the challenge was to consistently make and cook a good 15″ pizza in it.  This video shows how I made this 15″ pizza with a little help!  These tips are great if you are new to pizza dough and pizza ovens!

Normally, I would use my own pizza dough, but for this video I used pre-made dough that was home-delivered and purchased off the internet.  They were delivered nearly frozen and I quickly put them in the freezer ready for my next pizza cook.

Pizza Dough

BUYING PIZZA DOUGH IS HANDY IF YOU ARE NEW TO COOKING PIZZA

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. 

I’ve created a Pizza for Beginners YouTube playlist that gives some great tips to help you with your learning to cook pizza journey!
