Pizza Judging Tips

  1. It’s all about the crust. You cannot have a good slice of pizza without good dough, so be sure to check the crust. If the dough was prepared properly, it was given enough time to rise and rest. It also needs to be baked in a good pizza oven so that the toppings are able to fully cook without burning the crust. Chck to make sure the bottom of the pie is well done, so that you get a nice crisp bite, but not burnt. Also, make sure that the crust is nicely toasted on the outside, but light and fluffy on the inside. The slice should be nice and pliant, not stiff; and, it should be evenly cooked all around.
  2. The sauce is pretty damn important, too. You are looking for a great sauce that tastes savory and bright, not sweet or dull. Ask to get a little extra sauce on the side so you can give it a good taste.
  3. Fresh ingredients are a MUST! No wilted, packaged, or canned ingredients. You want quality ingredients, such as whole, fresh vegetables that are hand-picked, washed, and chopped in-house and that are vibrant and hold up well even after they are cooked.
  4. Let’s talk about the cheese. Is it fully melted? Evenly distributed? Does it have lovely golden tints here and there? Is it the right amount? A great pizza is going to have a generous amount of cheese, but not so much that it throws it off balance and weighs the slice down. You want to taste the cheese, but you want to taste everything else, too.
  5. How does it taste? Obviously, the pizza must taste great! Not just good … great. Let’s raise the bar here! We do NOT care about price, service, or atmosphere (although, of course, restaurant cleanliness should go without saying). We aren’t looking for cheap pizza or the fastest delivery times here, we are looking for the best pizza!

Let’s just hope that our reader’s are a better judge of good pizza than this…
