When you’re cooking a pizza, there’s nothing worse than taking it out of the oven only to find that it’s still raw in the middle. This can be frustrating and lead to a lot of wasted time and food. In this blog post, we’ll discuss some tips for determining whether or not your pizza is cooked all the way through.
How do I know if my pizza is cooked? Well-browned and crispy crust is an indicator of a cooked pizza. The crust should become crisp in the final one to 2 minutes baking. Additionally, the cheese needs to be completely melted. If you see any large pools of grease on top of the pizza, it likely needs to be cooked for a minute or two longer. Another way to tell if your pizza is done is to insert a toothpick into the center of the pie. If it comes out clean, with no dough or cheese attached, then your pizza is cooked!
If you’re ever unsure whether or not your pizza is cooked, it’s better to err on the side of caution and bake it for a minute or two longer. This will help ensure that you don’t end up with a raw pizza. And, if you find that your pizza is overcooked, don’t despair! There are plenty of ways to salvage an overcooked pizza.
Can you eat undercooked pizza?

How do you know if your pizza is undercooked?
To ensure there’s no dough that is raw in your pizza look at the pizza’s bottom by carefully lifting the pizza and looking down at the bottom. If the crust appears golden brown at the bottom, then you’ve got an excellently cooked pizza. If the crust is white in the middle, it’s not been cooked for long enough. Put it back in the oven for a few minutes.
If you don’t have a pizza stone, place the baking sheet on the lowest rack of your oven. The heat will come up and cook the bottom crust more evenly.
You can also tell if a pizza is undercooked by looking at the cheese. If it’s not melted or bubbly, then it needs a few more minutes in the oven. Lastly, give the pizza a gentle prod with your finger. If it feels mushy, it needs to cook longer.
Now that you know how to tell if your pizza is undercooked, enjoy your perfectly cooked pie!

Try lowering the temperature of your oven by a little or lower the pizza by one or two levels on the oven rack. It is possible to bake the pizza longer – maybe 4 minutes more time and bake your pizza to the point of getting the crust burned. This will help to cook the pizza through.

Why is my pizza soggy in the middle?
The primary reason for an undercooked or soggy pizza is usually due to the temperature of the oven. Also, you might have added excessive toppings or many sauces that have stopped the pizza from forming crisp texture.
If you have a pizza stone, preheat it in the oven to its maximum temperature for at least 30 minutes. If you don’t have one, then place your pizza on the lowest rack of your oven.
Use a baker’s peel to slide the pizza from the counter onto the hot stone or baking sheet. Make sure to dust the peel with cornmeal first so that the dough doesn’t stick.
Bake for about eight to 12 minutes, until the crust is golden brown and firm to the touch. Check on your pizza after eight minutes and rotate it if necessary for even cooking.
