Tips for a Perfect Pizza Cake:

  1. Sturdy Structure: Use a springform pan to give your pizza cake a solid structure and to make it easier to remove and slice.
  2. Even Layers: Ensure even layers of dough, toppings, and cheese to create a harmonious balance of flavors and textures.
  3. Proper Baking: Bake your pizza cake at a temperature that allows the dough to cook through and the cheese to melt perfectly, usually a bit lower and slower than a traditional pizza.
