Everybody loves pizza. It might sound like a cliche, but it is true. Some people are invested in pizza a bit more compared to others, which is why they decide to make it at home. But what happens when you have to travel, and you can’t make your own?
Before anything, we’d like to say that part of enjoying your traveling endeavors comes from the fact that you get to try out new food, especially the one that’s specific to a certain area or country. So, in some cases, it might make little to no sense to try to make pizza when you’re out and about.
However, if you are a master pizza maker at home, and you can’t enjoy the convenience of your wood-burning oven or that of your rotating pizza oven, here’s a list of things you might have to take with you or purchase while you’re out on the road if you plan to make your pies even when you’re away from home.
It goes without saying that you won’t have to carry a full-size appliance with you to make sure that you make your pizza the right way. A pizza stone is the easiest thing you can get, both in terms of availability and in terms of how much it costs. Sure, some models might be a bit pricier than others, but none of them will have you breaking the bank.
Take your favorite pizza stone if you have several. It makes little to no sense to carry several, and that’s because they all take a lot of time to cool out once you have used them.
A pizza peel and a pan or several serving plates
The headline should pretty much tell you everything you need to know. A basic wooden pizza peel can mean a lot to someone who likes making the dish. The pan might be necessary if you do not have the convenience of a stone and you want to make sure that your homemade pizza doesn’t stick to anything.
If you don’t want to carry several serving dishes with you, you can eat the pizza straight from the pan. However, two serving plates can mean a lot if you want to use the oven time and again and prepare as much pizza for everyone at a cookout or get-together. After all, you’ll need to transfer it from the oven at some point, right?
Prepare your ingredients ahead of time
If what really makes your pizza special is your secret sauce, the last thing you might want to do is leave it at home. Sure, that might be a problem if you’re going to air travel, but if you go to your destination by car, you can take a limited amount with you. Try to make it thicker so that you can add water to it when you’re going to use it.
The rest of the ingredients you can either pack in small-sized containers, and some of them you can get locally. Don’t carry your whole house with you if you want to cook for yourself or your buddies.
