Preparing Vegetariana Pizza
Preheat your oven to at least 450 degrees for 30 minutes or longer.
Spread out pizza dough on floured surface.
If you have a pizza peel, you can create your pizza on it (after flouring).
Start by spreading the sauce all over the base. This pizza uses Tomato Sauce. Spread the Tomato Sauce Thinly yet evenly, leaving a margin for the crust.
Add the largest toppings first – typically meat or seafood, then the smaller toppings.
Add cheese last, and sprinkle it all over to help keep the toppings in place when it melts.

When making Vegetariana Pizza, I suggest you just use what you have available, without spending any money. My recommended basic pizza tool list is…
Dough Proofing Box
If you make a lot of dough through the year, you’ll find owning a pizza dough proofing box very useful.
Glass Measuring Jug
I hate taking chances with portions, so having a quality glass jug with clear to read measurements a vital kitchen tool for me.
OK, not really pizza related, but a good chef apron makes me feel the part when I am making my pizzas. I’d probably wear a chef hat if I got one too!
Swedish Cheese is a savory and delicious topping option for pizzas, adding an unmistakable flavor that is sure to please any pizza lover. This unique cheese has its roots in the country of Sweden, where it has been used for centuries in many traditional dishes as well as contemporary creations.
Made from cow’s milk, Swedish Cheese has an intense aroma and a mild taste that offers just the right amount of saltiness when placed on top of pizzas. Its creamy texture pairs perfectly with tomatoes and other vegetables, making it a perfect addition to any pizza recipe.
