Everyday Gourmet: Homemade Pizza

Everyone loves to order takeout pizza, but we don't always have the same results when making it at home. In this week's Everyday Gourmet, Chef Simon gives us hints for the perfect homemade pizza.

  • Frozen Pizza Dough (available at Sweet Gourmet)
  • Olive oil
  • flour
  • 1 can Cento San Marzano Tomatoes (available at Sweet Gourmet)
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Fresh Mozzarella (available at Sweet Gourmet)
  • Assorted toppings
  • Parmesan cheese

Six hours before cooking, place the dough in a mixing bowl that has been rubbed down with olive oil. Place a kitchen towel or plastic wrap over the bowl and set on the counter so the dough can thaw and rise.

When ready to cook, place the dough on a work surface. Add flour and roll out the dough evenly. Flip and turn while rolling. Place the dough on a round baking sheet.

Puree the can of tomatoes in a blender. Spoon the sauce over the dough and spread from the inside out. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top with mozzarella and favorite topping.

Place the pizza in a preheated 500 degree oven. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes. Watch closely to be sure it doesn’t burn. Before preheating place the oven rack in the center of the oven.
