Pizza, Simple homemade
8 oz. mozzarella cheese 3/8" slices
2 cloves garlic fresh minced
pepperoni (if desired)
several tomatoes from a 28 oz. can
oregano flakes
parmesan cheese grate some yourself
olive oil drizzle
pepper fresh ground

This recipe assumes you have a pizza crust of some kind already prepared and need to get the ingredients added in the proper order. Assemble ingredients in order:

  1. cheese - use 1/4" to 3/8" thick slices of fresh mozzerella
  2. garlic - fresh, minced
  3. pepperoni - only if desired
  4. tomatoes - use canned San Marzano tomatoes or fresh tomatoes if possible. crush them onto the pizza with your hands
  5. oregano - flakes, not powder
  6. parmesan - please grate fresh parmesan!
  7. TOPPINGS - mushrooms, peppers, etc
  8. olive oil - drizzle a bit on top
  9. pepper - grind some on top

Place on a pizza pan and bake in an oven preheated to 500 degrees for ten to twelve minutes. Let sit for a few minutes before slicing.

This assembly method allows all the ingredients to remain on the pizza when you take a bite instead of sliding off the top. The cheese sticks to the crust and other ingredients, yet bubbles up through the fresh tomatoes. Don't use a sauce, San Marzano tomatoes are wonderful by themselves. Seriously, this simple pizza is mouth-watering.

We use Evelyne Slomon's "The Pizza Book". ( It might be out of print but it's well worth the time spent searching.
