Often I will post about something I want to remember or come back to. This is one of those posts! The Suburban Jungle (check our her Mediterranean pizza) mentioned this in her recipe:
"When you make homemade pizza, it's really important to pre-bake the crust before you add the ingredients. This can make all the difference between having a good pizza and a gummy, yucky pizza. You should do this even if you are using a pre-packaged pizza crust. You only need to bake it for 5-6 minutes (higher heat is better here, maybe 500*) You can use this time to clean up the kitchen or prepare your sauce."
