– Hey, guys, it’s Dani, and today is day 19 of the food styling challenge. Today, we are talking all about how to get that perfect, cheesy pizza pull. So, let’s jump in with all the tips and tricks. Tip number one is to pre-cook and pre-cut your piece of pizza. Now, basically what this means is that we are manufacturing the pizza to get it to pull exactly where we want it to pull. This isn’t a assemble the whole pizza and then wonder why your cheese pull didn’t work situation. We’re gonna pre-cook our crust so if you have a raw crust, you wanna go ahead and pre-cook that crust until it’s almost done. After that, you’re gonna cut out the pizza piece as big as you want with a pair of kitchen shears or a very sharp knife. Now, after this is done, you’re gonna put that slice right back up next to where the pizza is, and then we’re gonna start assembly. Tip number two is assemble the right way. The first thing to know when you’re assembling your pizza is that you need to do this a little bit more strategically than you thought. You wanna take your pizza sauce and you want to spread it over the pizza, but you wanna avoid getting right on that cut line. That’s because this is going to ooze out into your cut and it’s just not gonna look good. So, give yourself a little bit of space right on that cut line where you don’t put any sauce. Definitely make sure you have some sauce on the slice itself though, just not right around those edges. Once you’ve got your sauce on, we’re going to start assembling the cheese pull. Now, to do this, we’re gonna use either string cheese, or my favorite are these things called string whips. They’re basically string cheese without the packaging. Another good option if you can’t find the cheese whips is to use a farm style cut mozzarella cheese. Now, these are gonna give you nice long strands of cheese like that, that pull really nicely. Your other option is to use string cheese and just lay those out and just rip them down the string cheese. Now that you have your cheese pull line assembled, we want to finish covering this up and making your pizza. So, at this point, we’re gonna add the rest of the cheese, the rest of the toppings, all the way across there. Now, if your pizza has pepperoni on it, it can be a really nice look to have a pepperoni slice cut right down the middle. But, if you try to do this after it’s already cooked, it’s gonna become a big mess. It’s going to sink in there, your cut line’s gonna be all wonky, so when you see those perfect pepperoni cuts and wonder how the heck did they do that, they did it before they cooked it. So, trim those down and lay them on both sides there if you want that realistic looking pepperoni slice. The last thing that we have to do here is to put this into the oven, so into the oven at 425. If you have a pizza stone, use the pizza stone. If you have a crisper, where they’re an aluminum pan that has holes in the bottom, use that. Those are all really good options. You wanna try to get that crust really nice and crispy on the bottom so that it’s not soggy at all. My next tip takes a little MacGyver-ing, but you wanna build a custom pizza puller. That’s not really a technical term, but this is basically what it is. So, this is a pizza puller. So, basically what this is, is it’s a pizza slice server and what we’ve done is we have epoxy glued some thumbtacks on here. So what’s going to happen is as we slide underneath that pizza, we’re gonna tap it up and shove it into the crust there, and then as we pull, it’s gonna give us a nice resistance to get that cheese pull without it sliding off of here. Now, there’s lots of other ways that you can do this. You can use really heavy duty double-stick tape, but this is by far my favorite way. It’s consistent and once you build it, you don’t have to build it again. So, you always have something really great to be able to pull those pizza slices with.
