Instructions

  3. Roll Out the Dough: Stretch dough into a 12-inch circle.

Variations

  • Tasty Drizzle: Enhance the flavor with truffle oil, garlic-infused oil, or balsamic glaze.
  • Sauceless: Brush the dough with olive oil instead of sauce.
  • Crispy Crunch: Sprinkle walnuts or pine nuts on top during the last minute of baking.
  • Veggies or Meat: Add thin-sliced shallots, caramelized onions, spinach, sausage, or asparagus, but avoid overloading to prevent sogginess.

Salad Pairings

  • Italian Chopped Salad
  • Greek Salad
  • Salad with Burrata


Tips

  • Use a dusting wand to evenly distribute flour on your work surface.
  • Let the dough rest if it snaps back when stretching.
  • Cook mushrooms until they release their juices and let the juices evaporate to prevent a soggy pizza.
