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.

Pizza making FAQ
Below we’ve compiled the most common pizza making questions and provided expert answers. Are you looking for how to make delicious pizza at home? Please read on!
When making pizza dough should I spray the pan?
It is important that you ensure your dough doesn’t stick to any bowls or pans that you use. I prefer to gently wipe olive oil across the surface using a paper towel, however spray olive oil used in moderation works just as well for this purpose.
Can I substitute parmesan for mozzarella in making pizza?
Of course! Actually I like to add a little parmesan to all my mozzarella, to give it a tangier taste. It is absolutely a personal choice how much of each cheese or what cheeses to use at all. That’s the fun of homemade pizza making – not having to eat whatever the pizza shop uses.
How hot are pizza ovens?
Pizza ovens can easily reach 700-850 degrees farenheit, and can get to 1000 degrees without too much trouble. This is far hotter than your typical electric or gas kitchen oven.
