Cook Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 16" pizza


Some people pre-cook their toppings, both meat and vegetables. I've never found this to be necessary. I throw everything on raw and it all gets cooked through.


  1. Start by preparing the dough according to its instructions.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the tomato sauce, paste, and seasonings (to taste).
  3. Grate all the cheese into a large bowl.
  4. Assembling the pizza: Roll out the dough and place on pan. Spread sauce evenly over the dough. Add your toppings and finish by adding all of the cheese.
  5. Put into a cold oven and turn to 500ºF. Bake until done. (I've never timed it. Maybe 20 minutes?)
