How to Make Three Cheese Pizza

Step-by-Step

  • 1At least 30 minutes before baking, preheat your pizza stone or oven tiles to 450 degrees.
  • 2Flatten the dough and form into a ball by folding the left side two thirds over onto the right side.
  • 3Flatten the dough, pushing from right to left.
  • 4Turn a quarter turn and repeat.
  • 5Repeat this rapidly until you have a cushion of dough smooth on the bottom.
  • 6Now turn the dough "smooth side up" and rotate the dough between your hands while tucking the dough under itself.
  • 7This will increase the tension on the top of the dough and make a nice ball shape.
  • 8Flatten the dough into a disk using a floured rolling pin.
  • 9When the dough resists, allow it to rest a few minutes covered loosely with a towel or floured plastic wrap.
  • 10Repeat this until you have a circle with a 14 to 16 inch diameter.
  • 11If the dough is at all sticky, flour both sides heavily.
  • 12Sprinkle your piel with cornmeal.
  • 13Roll the dough up on your rolling pin and transfer to the piel.
  • 14Adjust the dough as needed and quickly assemble the pizza.
  • 15Brush the surface lightly with olive oil.
  • 16Spread the tomato sauce evenly over the surface leaving a 1/2 inch boarder.
  • 17Garnish the surface with the mixed cheeses, add the herbs and drizzle the olive oil over the surface.
  • 18Add salt and pepper and finish with a sprinkling of parmesan.
  • 19Open the oven door, position the piel at the back of the stone or tiles and give the piel a few quick jerks to make sure the pizza is loose and will slide.
  • 20Pull the piel back and the pizza will slide onto the stone.
  • 21Bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
  • 22The cheese should be bubbling and the edges should be browning lightly.
  • 23*Recommended herbs: oregano, thyme and basil (mixed)
