Just the other day we made an amazing pizza dough that yields incredibly good results in a regular domestic oven. Today we're using the same dough for the bases while make what is arguably the most popular pizza in North America, the pepperoni pizza.
Ingredients
For the Sauce
  • 180ml Tomato puree'
  • 180ml Water
  • 5ml Onion flakes
  • 5ml Dried basil
  • 5ml Garlic granules
  • 5ml Dried oregano
  • 5ml Salt
  • 30ml Shredded Parmesan cheese
For the Topping
  • 300g Mozzarella cheese
  • 200g Pepperoni (or well aged salami)
  • ½ Batch special pizza dough each rolled to 30cm / 12 inches
Instructions
For the Sauce
  1. Measure out the onion flakes, dried basil, garlic granules, dried oregano and salt.
  2. Measure out the tomato puree and water, and finely shred the Parmesan cheese.
  3. Place everything except the Parmesan in a small saucepan.
  4. Place the pan over medium heat and bring it to a boil, stirring regularly.
  5. When the pot comes to a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer and allow this to continue for 30 minutes until thickened.
  6. Turn off the gas or remove the pot from the heat and stir in the shredded Parmesan.
For the Rest
  1. Pepperoni and salami are from the same family, with pepperoni being slightly more spicy. For this reason, if you cannot find pepperoni, you can substitute a good quality, well aged salami for excellent results.
  2. Slice the meat thinly using your slicer. This can also be done by hand, although it will take a bit longer.
  3. Cut the mozzarella cheese into thick slices. If your fortunate enough to find hand-crafted mozzarella, you can simply rip apart by hand.
  4. Scatter a little corn meal over your baking sheet and place one of the bases on the sheet.
  5. Pour half of the tomato sauce onto the base and spread it around, leaving about a half inch open around the edge.
  6. Scatter half of the mozzarella cheese over the base.
  7. Follow this with the sliced pepperoni to cover the entire surface of the pizza, then continue with second base.
  8. Bake the pizzas in a preheated oven at 250c or 480f for 15 minutes. The edges will be beautifully golden and base will nicely charred and crisp underneath.
  9. Serve immediately.
  10. Stay tuned for our next pizza episode towards the end of the month, where we will be start a multi-episode review of a remarkable domestic pizza oven.
