  • Pizza dough (I used Trader Joe's). shhhh, quiet)
  • Fresh mozzarella (the large balls)
  • olive oil (Good quality)
  • (handful) Pine nuts
  • a few leaves Fresh basil

Step 1

Let your pizza dough come to room temp while your oven preheats to 500. I highly, highly suggest using a pizza stone for making pizza. You will never look back, I swear it! Slice your mozzarella into 1/4" thick rounds, and toast your pine nuts while you're waiting for everything to heat up. Divide your dough into threes, and roll/stretch them out to size. Put them on a pizza peel lubricated with a thin dusting of cornmeal.


Step 2

Brush with olive oil, then top with cheese. Have your lovely husband slide into the oven for you because he is more coordinated than you with these kinds of things.


Step 3

Watch them bake because your new oven actually has a window and your old one didn't.


Step 4

Remove when browned and bubbling, top with pine nuts and basil, and enjoy!
