It is often said the key to good pizza is crust. I could not agree more. Pizza with a hard crust makes finishing a chore. Generally a too hard crust is also tasteless, and possibly crumbly, which defeat the point of eating or create an annoying mess. A too soft crust also has disastrous consequences for the eating experience. Adjectives like soggy and chewy come to mind.
A good crust should be hard enough to bite, but moist enough that is doesn’t crumble like old brick. A crust in that Goldilocks zone puts a delightful cap on the pizza experience.
