Preparing Suprema 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;
- Spanish Salami
- Smoked Ham
This pizza is very nice on its own, or why not enjoy it with a simple side dish?
Put the Suprema pizza in the middle of your oven (on a pizza steel if you have one) and set timer for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, open the door and see how cooked pizza is.
Pizza should be ready within 15 minutes. However, allow it to cook to personal taste.
Salami is a cured Sausage made of air dried, fermented meat, usually pork. The word Salami, however, has been around for centuries and derives from the Italian word “salume”, which means all types of salted meat.
Historically, Salami was popular among peasants in Europe, because it could be stored for up to 45 days at room temperature once cut, which helped during difficult times of getting fresh meat.

Pizza making FAQ
Want to make delicious pizzas at home? Here are some expert answers to some of the most common pizza making questions.
How come some pizza dough recipes include sugar and others do not?
Some people use sugar to give the yeast a helping hand growing at the start. A dough made without added sugar and risen slowly will often produce a beautiful brown crust. However, many people want pizza dough to be ready faster, then they suggest added sugar, which helps the yeast to grow and gives some browning to the crust.
How long do I bake my pizza?
The pizza baking times depend on the oven you are using. An average kitchen oven set to 500F should cook a pizza well in 12 to 15 minutes. A wood-fired oven hotter than 750F will cook a pizza in 2-3 minutes.
Can I use brown sugar when making pizza dough?
Yes, however I personally prefer white sugar. I feel it helps feed the yeast better, however all of pizza dough making is constant experimentation, so try it out with brown sugar and you may be surprised with the results!
