Grab your chef's hats, aprons and turn up your ovens: it's National Pizza Party Day.  Whether you prefer four cheese, pepperoni or everything but the kitchen sink, these tips will ensure a tasty result.

1.  Get the oven hot:  Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.  This is the secret to a crispy crust and not a soggy one.

2.  Semolina:  A sprinkle of semolina on the dough before placing it on the pizza stone keeps it extra crispy and helps it from sticking to the stone after baking.

3.  Don't over-sauce:  Keep the sauce to a minimum.  More sauce means a soggier crust.

4. Don't go overboard: Practice restraint with toppings.  Thin crusts can't handle the weight of a ton of toppings.

5.  Make it gourmet:  Sprinkle fresh herbs, red pepper or olive oil on top of the pizza when it's out of the oven for better-than-restaurant results.
