Having just got my pizza stone, I am rushing around trying to find pizzas that are really well suited to 'the stone'.

This one uses the grill, a pizza stone and the oven so it's as close to a proper pizza oven as you can get.

Mise en place

Method

  1. Make 1 pizza per person
  2. Dust the work surface with fine yellow cornmeal
  3. Stretch or roll the dough into two thin rounds
  4. Sprinkle the stone with fine yellow cornmeal
  5. Prick the pizza all over with a fork. This prevents it puffing up too much and burning while it is cooking
  6. Pre-cook the empty pizza base on one side only for about 3 minutes or until it is lightly browned
  7. Remove from the oven, flip and add the topping.
  8. Lightly oil one side of the pizza and grill, oiled side down, flip an repeat, about 2 minutes per side
  9. Drizzle the pizza with olive oil and spread the pizza with ½ of the tomato sauce
  10. Top with torn mozzarella, Crushed garlic, sausage and meatballs
  11. Bake for 3 or 4 minutes or until the cheese browns a little - watch it carefully as it can burn easily.
  12. Remove and sprinkle with torn basil and capers
  13. Keep the fist pizza warm at the bottom of the oven whilst you make the second.
  14. Serve hot

Chef's note

If you don't have a pizza peel use an upturned plate, dusted with fine yellow cornmeal and some deft handwork to slide the dough onto the stone.
