  • 1
     
    Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. While oven is preheating place a 9x13 cake pan in to heat.
  • 2
    Olive Oil
    1 1/2 to 2 pounds Pizza Dough
    Remove the cake pan from the oven and grease with olive oil. Gently work the dough into a thick even layer in the pan by pressing and pulling. The dough should fill most of the baking sheet.
  • 3
    4 ounces Tomato Paste
    Salt to taste
    Red Chili Flakes to taste
    1/4 cup pitted Olives 
    1 pound Mozzarella (shredded)
    1/2 pound thinly sliced Pepperoni
    Capers to taste 
    torn Basil to garnish 
    Spread the tomato paste over the dough and season with salt and chili flakes if desired. Sprinkle on the olives and mozzarella top with pepperoni and capers. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until the dough is crispy and golden brown. Remove from oven, top with basil and allow to cool slighty before cutting and serving.

    Helpful Tips:
    1. Put the pizza in the pan and place it right over your burner before it goes in the oven. The hot olive oil will help form a nice crispy crust.
    2. Do not over dress your pizza with mozzarella. It should be well balanced with the crust and sauce.
