This pizza can be prepared using homemade or store bought fresh pizza dough…just be sure to follow the instructions for handling the dough which are at the bottom of our Traditional Pizza Dough Recipe. Be sure to bake the pizza at 500°F to create a thin crisp crust. Pizza is a blank canvas and you can top it with anything you like. With a thin crust pizza it is better to arrange smaller amounts of the toppings – it should be almost sparse! Makes one 14” pizza (4 servings of 2 pieces each), or 10 -12 Tasting Party servings.
