The article explains that a good crust is essential for a tasty Sicilian-style homemade pizza. In the United States, Sicilian pizza is similar to a pan crust with a thick crust. However, many American versions end up with a flat, soggy crust due to too many wet and heavy toppings. To avoid this, the article suggests pre-baking the untopped crust for 10 minutes at 450 degrees Fahrenheit. This pre-bake allows the crust to become crispy, while still leaving enough time for the toppings to cook and brown. Adding just the right amount of sauce and layering the cheese first also helps maintain the crust's texture. Overall, by following these tips, you can achieve a delicious Sicilian pizza with a pillowy interior and a buttery crunch on the bottom.
