Ready to cook

As with any pizza, you can make it with almost any ingredients. Try and keep the quantities about the same though. You can end up with a damp soggy pizza if you overdo the cheese.

Mise en place

Method

  1. Make 1 pizza per person
  2. Preheat the oven to 230° C (450° F - gas 8) or about 9 cm (3") from a very hot grill if using a pizza stone
  3. Dust the work surface with fine yellow cornmeal and divide your pizza dough into two balls and roll out into two 20 cm (8") rounds
  4. Prick the pizza all over with a fork. This prevents it puffing up too much and burning while it is cooking.
  5. Pre-cook the pizza base for about 3 minutes on one side only if using a pizza stone, then remove from the oven, flip and add the topping
  6. Spread the spicy tomato sauce on the surface of the pizza
  7. Layer the sliced meats and Mozzarella cheese onto the pizza and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese
  8. Drizzle with olive oil
  9. Bake for about 9 to 10 minutes or until the base is crispy and the cheese has melted

Serving suggestions

Garnish with the basil leaves and serve with a salad. If there is any tomato sauce left over after making the pizzas, warm it up and serve with the pizzas as a dip
