I put the word “homemade” in quotes because, well, nothing about this recipe is really homemade. It’s just a really incredible combination of store-purchased ingredients that comes together as one of the best pizzas you will ever eat in your fucking life.
I will 100% guarantee that this fucking pizza is better than where you get your delivery, and I don’t give a fuck if you regularly order from fucking Di Fara!
What Do You Need?
- Small can of sauce (8oz)
- Small package of mozzarella cheese (8oz block/ball is preferred)
- Parmesan cheese (to taste)
- Pre-made pizza dough (the fresh kind)
- Olive oil (just a few ounces)
- Bread crumbs or cornmeal (2 teaspoons)
- Various spices (to taste)
- Perforated metal pizza pan
Pretty simple. Watch the time lapse video below, and if you can’t fucking figure it out from that, you can read on below…
Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees. While waiting, coat your pizza pan with some olive oil. Shake a few teaspoons of bread crumbs or cornmeal across the pan. Stretch your pizza dough across the pan to get full coverage. Pour sauce evenly over the dough and add a few drizzles of olive oil. Add parmesan cheese and spices to taste. Cut up the block of mozzarella cheese and arrange slices evenly across the pizza dough. Bake 20-25mins or until cheese begins to bubble and turn brown. Remove from oven and allow pizza to cool down a bit before slicing.
This shit also comes out really nice with fresh ingredients. I did the same type of thing with sliced tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, herbs and some sliced onion. Check it out:

The tomatoes actually make each vote really juicy, so this was a much better pie than the ones I make with canned sauce.
Once in a while I even add eggs into the mix:
