Ingredients

1 pizza dough

4 oz. fresh tomato sauce

3 oz. fresh mozzarella

fresh basil

olive oil

s & p

Procedure

1. Place Baking Steel on top rack of your oven. Pre-heat to 500 degrees or on full throttle (Preheat 45 minutes-1 hr).

2. Stretch or roll out dough to a 12 inch cylinder, or any shape will do. Lightly flour your peel and place dough on top.

3. Evenly distribute tomato sauce leaving about 1 inch around perimeter

4. Place fresh mozzarella throughout, less is more.( This stuff oozes).  Add a couple of fresh basil leaves.

5. Launch onto the Baking Steel, bake until you've reached your desired brownness. We made a few, some purposely darker than others.  What's your preference?

7. Remove pizza from oven, and top with a few leaves of fresh basil and olive oil.

Slice and serve.
