1 pizza dough

1.5 oz Drizzle

2 oz pecorino romano

.5 oz crushed black pepper


Active Time: 10 minutes

Full Time: 1 hr 10 minutes

Serves 1

Preheat your oven at 500F with your Baking Steel on the top rack for one hour.


Stretch or roll out your dough into a 12 inch round. Switch the oven to broil.


Lightly dust your pizza peel with semolina flour and place the dough on top. Carefully place 2-3 ice cubes over the center of the dough. Launch onto your Baking Steel. 


Broil for 2 minutes, open oven and rotate pizza about 180 degrees. Close oven and continue on broil for 1-2 minutes or until desired doneness and remove. 


Now the fun part! Pour that Drizzle all over the center of the cooked dough, grate the pecorino all over the top, and finally crack on your pepper. 


Instead of slicing, you can just rip this baby up by hand! Grab a glass of wine and enjoy...
