  • Dough - I didn't make it myself. Yeah its sorta cheating, but I bought premixed dough from Trader Joes for $0.99. Tough to beat, tasty too.
  • Tomato Paste
  • Italian Herbs (I used Italian seasoning, savory, marjoram, oregano, whatever I felt smelled like I would like it in pizza. Oh yeah, and some chili powder for the sauce.
  • pizza toppings (meats, cheeses, etc)
  • corn meal
  • flour - for rolling out the dough
  • olive oil

Step 1

*protip: buy good quality ingredients. I get real Canadian bacon, from a meat counter, cut off of a cured pork loin. Same with the pepperoni, from a real meat vendor, not the Hormel packaged stuff. You will be happy you did this. Get your tools out: -Oven at 500 degrees Fahrenheit -Pizza Stone (required) -Large Wooden Pizza Peel Make your tomato sauce: I used all the spices I listed above, tomato paste, water to consistency, salt (lots of salt), and garlic powder. its all to taste, but tomato paste needs a LOT of seasoning to get it to a good pizza sauce taste level. Garlic powder is a MUST.


Step 2

Roll out your dough. I let the dough warm up to room temp for about 45 minutes, gives it a few air bubbles but it rolls so easy.


Step 3

Dust the wooden peel with cornmeal. The cornmeal will help the dough slide off onto the pizza stone. I always roll the dough out on a wooden board and put it on the peel afterwords, you can adjust technique as you prefer.


Step 4

Oil the Crust. Putting a little bit of olive oil on the crust with your handy dandy silicon food brush, you can make a nice crispy browned edge of crust without it getting greasy/soggy from your pepperoni.


Step 5

Add the sauce to the dough. Pretty self explanatory, but try to make the sauce go out to the edge.


Step 6

Put your toppings on the pizza. This is the Canadian bacon and pineapple pizza. Turned out really darn good. (see, the Canadian bacon is shaped like a pork loin, not bologna).


Step 7

Place it in the oven on a pizza stone at 500 degrees Fahrenheit for 11 minutes. Here's the pepperoni pizza going in the oven. (check out my awesome centering). Shake the wooden pizza peel a few times to loosen the pizza before you try to slide it off, it takes a few times of doing it to get good at it, but it gets easy.
