So I made two pizzas this week, the first in the middle of the oven for around 15 minutes and the pizza was nice and brown on top, but the bottom was underdone for sure and very blonde, the second one I did on the bottom of the oven for 10 mins, then the top for 10 mins, the bottom was a little more brown but still not right. I'm using a pizza crisper but it just won't brown properly. My dough is paper thin and I'm preheating the oven to 475 for 1 hour so I'm not sure what's going wrong.
I was thinking of two things to try next time, one is to pre bake the dough on both sides then add the toppings, the other was too cook the pizza in the oven then transfer it to a hot skillet/frying pan for like 1 - 2 minutes to brown up the bottom. Are either of these options viable?
Any advice would be great, the dough itself is really nice but the bottom ruins it. I've added a photo of the top of the pizza, but I forgot to grab one of the bottom (doh).
