Pizza Dough Method
If you don’t have much time, grab a premade pizza base at your local grocery store, or create your own homemade pizza dough following the simple steps below.
- Whisk yeast and lukewarm water in a jug. Stand for around five minutes.
- Add flour and salt in a large bowl. Create a well in the centre of the flour. Pour in the liquid yeast mixture and the oil.
- Using a spatula, or your hands, mix the dough really well until smooth. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for five minutes.
- Lightly oil a bowl, and place dough in it and cover with plastic wrap. Leave in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes to an hour, or until it doubles in size.
- Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently for another 5 minutes or until smooth.
- Divide the dough into balls, and roll out bases to desired size.
- Sprinkle a little flour on the bench before rolling to prevent dough from sticking.

Preparing Meat Feast Pizza
Preheat your kitchen oven to approximately 500 degrees.
Roll out the dough to either slightly smaller than your pizza stone (if you have one) or on a metal tray for the kitchen oven.
Alternatively, if you have a pizza oven, roll out to be smaller than your pizza peel.
First, spread the sauce around. This pizza calls for Tomato Sauce. Spread the Tomato Sauce evenly using the back of a large spoon or the blunt side of a knife.
You should start by adding the largest ingredients, then work your way down. The last is any cheese topping, such as Mozzarella, which you should evenly cover the other toppings with, and then finally any herbs.
The toppings to include on this pizza are;
- Maltese Sausage
- Minced Beef
This pizza is very nice by itself, yet why not with another style of pizza?
Put the Meat Feast pizza in oven, and set alarm for ten minutes.
After 10 minutes, open oven and look at pizza.
The pizza should be done within roughly 15 minutes. Always cook to personal tastes.
Fresh Mozzarella is typically white, however when seasoned it can change to light yellow, depending on the animal’s diet. Due to its high moisture content, it is traditionally served the day after it is made, however it can be kept in brine for a week, or even longer if packaged well.
Mozzarella was first cited in an Italian cookbook in 1570. Nowadays, Mozzarella can be twisted to form a plait, and called Treccia. You can also buy it as a smoked cheese, called Affumicata.
When making Meat Feast Pizza, I always recommend that you use whatever kitchen items you have. My basic pizza tools are…
Good quality metal or plastic bench scrapers make it so much esier to both cut your dough, and scrape your bench. I prefer plastic to avoid scratching my bench.
Pizza making is all about precision, so having a full set of both wet and dry measuring cups on hand is critical. It is so important when making pizza dough to accurately measure all your ingredients.

Traditionally, sausages were made from ground beef or pork, with salt, spices and other flavourings. However, now there are chicken and vegetarian and even vegan sausages.
In different countries, Sausages are called different things, such as bratwurst, rolliche, banger, liverwurst, frankfurter, wienerwurst or kielbasa.
Here are a few storage tips, if you have any dough or pizza left over after the meal.
Store in the fridge
Leftover slices of pizza may be kept in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
Warm in the center of a 450 degree F oven for approximately 6 minutes, on a pizza stone if possible, until heated through. See our article on reheating pizza for more.

Pizza making FAQ
Hope to make fantastic pizza at home? Here are some expert answers to some of the most Frequently asked questions.
What is the order of ingredients when topping a pizza?
The order of ingredients when topping a pizza is typically the pizza sauce, the large ingredients (meat, seafood, vegetables, etc), the smaller ingredients, cheese topping then herbs. If you are using fresh herbs, you may wish to bake the oven then sprinkle them on afterwards, to avoid them browning.
When do I add ice cream on a dessert pizza?
With ingredients such as ice cream, cream and even fruits, it is normally best to cook the pizza with the harder toppings, and then add these toppings after baking, so they don’t burn or melt everywhere in the oven.
Can I substitute pizza sauce with regular ketchup or pasta sauce?
You can try, however you probably won’t enjoy the result. Both ketchup and pasta sauces are typically too runny to use as pizza sauce. You are better using tomato paste, or at least mixing tomato paste in with your ketchup, to get a thicker sauce. Half the taste of pizza sauce is in the garlic and herbs, so don’t forget to add those as well.
