Video: Easy Homemade Pizza Dough


We love writing instructions on how to do things (it’s actually our professional career!). But let’s face it – learning by reading isn’t always the best method. Especially when it involves things that are hard to explain, like the texture of dough, or how to cut an onion.

A picture is worth a thousand words, right? Well, how about a thousand (or so) pictures?

We are so excited to unveil our first A Couple Cooks original instructional video!  And what better place to start than pizza?

Alex has been pondering how to share with you some of the secrets of his pizza crust for a while. (Since he’s the pizza crust master in our house, they’re secrets that I didn’t even know until I watched the video!)

He shot, directed, and produced this video to show you some of the magic he does to get the perfect pizza crust (the result of many years of trial and error!). Check it out, and get inspired to start your own home pizzeria!
