Since I made an ass kicking video for this recipe, I don’t really have to do much typing here. Watch:
One word of caution: you do NOT have to season the burger with salt before cooking. The egg yolks retain a LOT of salt content, even if you are very efficient at dusting it all off after pulling them from the curing box. So be mindful.
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:

After the oven:
The tomatoes actually make each vote really juicy, so this was a much better pie than the ones I make with canned sauce.
Since we had to pay Uncle Sam a fat wad of dough for tax season, I figured I’d save a little money and do a steak from home. Since I was in the spirit of giving, I also figured I may as well share the process with you meat-heads.
Here’s what you’ll need:
A Rib Eye Steak
A Few Sprigs Of Rosemary
A Few Tablespoons Of Soy Sauce
A Cup Of Olive Oil
Three Cloves Of Garlic
Crushed Red Pepper
A Frying Pan
A Source Of Heat
A Cutting Board
You’ll also need at least one eye and one ear, to watch and hear the demonstration I put together below:
