Of course a great pizza requires a great crust.

We think our Semolina Pizza Dough recipe fulfills that requirement just perfectly!

Homemade pizza dough, is there anything much better? Well, maybe the finished pizza, but we’re getting ahead of ourselves!

Of course, to build the perfect pizza, you need a great sauce.

A good pizza sauce doesn’t need to be overly complicated. You could even put this sauce together without cooking it on the stove and let it just rest in the fridge for a few hours, but I think simmering it for about 20 minutes really enhances the flavor and gives your pizza even more of a flavor boost.

Just be sure to let the sauce cool completely before assembling the pizza.

And then the cheese. Oh, the cheese. The Loon (as expected) loves cheese, and lots of it.

Whole milk low moisture mozzarella topped with freshly grated Parmesan cheese is the perfect cheese combo for this pizza.

Say cheese, please.

We love to finish the topping off with a sprinkle of red pepper flakes and dried basil and oregano.

Brushing the edges of the pizza with good-quality olive oil is a wonderful touch to allow the edges to crisp and become a beautiful golden brown.

  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated



  • In a medium-sized pan, heat the olive over medium heat.
  • Add the garlic and cook until softened, about 2 minutes. (Don't burn or will become bitter tasting).
  • Add the remaining ingredients, plus 1 tablespoon of water.
  • Simmer for 15 minutes. Taste and add more salt, if necessary. If too thin, cook for another 10 minutes, and add a little more tomato paste. Set aside and let cool completely.

  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
  • Add the mushrooms and season with salt and pepper and sauté them until softened and slightly browned around the edges, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • On a pizza wheel, dusted with semolina (or corn meal), stretch or roll out the pizza into a large round.
  • Spread the sauce over the dough, leaving about a 1-inch space from the edge of the dough.
  • Top with the mozzarella cheese and then distribute the soppressata, cooked mushrooms and olives evenly around the pizza.
  • Brush the outside edge of the dough with olive oil and sprinkle about a 1/2 teaspoon each of the dried basil, oregano and red pepper flakes over the top.
  • Top with the parmesan cheese.
  • Carefully slide the pizza from the peel onto the hot stone in the oven and bake for 10 - 15 minutes (depending on the temperature of your oven) until crust is golden brown.
  • Carefully transfer the pizza to a cutting board and let cool for a few minutes, then slice and serve right away.

    This pizza is AMAZING. I’ve been looking for some great pizza recipes as Carry Out just doesn’t always do pizza justice. The flavors blend so well, and the dough is thin and crispy just how we love it. I had some leftover Ricotta that I piped on top as well. Definitely a keeper recipe, as are all your recipes I have tried. Thank you!
