How to make delicious
THE WORLD'S FAVORITE PIZZA STYLE
I've adapted this super delicious, authentic pizza style to a recipe designed for the home oven.
Start with a single room temperature dough ball at rest for 1-2 hours. Carefully remove it and place it onto a pile of semolina flour.
Carefully work the dough ball into a disc by pressing the air from the middle to the edges. Don't press the crust, let it puff out.
Using a pizza peel, slide the dough onto a hot pizza stone. Par-bake for 30-60 seconds, just long enough to remove it in one piece.
Add high quality San Marzano tomato sauce. Put back on pizza stone and bake just long enough for sauce to begin steaming. Remove from oven again.
Add pecorino or parmigiano reggiano cheese. Next tear chunks of fresh mozzarella and spread evenly around crust. Add fresh basil. Drizzle extra-virgin olive oil.
Remove when cheese begins to bubble rapidly. Mozza should be melted not burnt or crusted over. Bottom crust should have light brown spots.
