Pizza Cheese

There is nothing better than pizza.  Cheese pizza….Yum.   Crispy crust, cheese oozing everywhere.  Delish.

 

Ingredients

Pizza Dough – I used store bought

1 Cup Marinara Sauce

Olive Oil

Salt & Pepper

Oregano or Italian Seasoning

1 Lb Mozzarella Cheese, Shredded

1/2 Cup Parmesan Cheese

 

Instructions

Preheat oven to 450º.

There are two ways that I like to cook pizza at home.    I have used both and they are equally good.

Option #1

Stretch the dough onto a 9-inch round pizza pan or a baking sheet.  Brush with olive oil, then sprinkle with oregano or Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.  Spread the marinara sauce over the dough, leaving 1/2 inch on all sides.  Bake until the crust is golden brown.  Remove from the oven.

Add the cheeses and return to the oven.  Bake until the cheese is melted. 

Option #2

Place a pizza stone or inverted baking sheet on the lowest rack in the oven.  Let the oven heat up to 450º – 500º.  

Lightly flour a pizza peel.  If you don’t have a pizza peel, a piece of parchment paper will work just fine. Stretch the dough and lay it on the peel or the paper.  Brush the dough with olive oil, then sprinkle with oregano or Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.  Spread the marinara sauce on the dough, leaving 1/2 inch on the sides.  Top with the cheeses.

If you are using the pizza peel, slide the pizza onto the stone or baking sheet in the oven.  If you are using the parchment paper, place the pizza with the parchment paper on the stone or baking sheet.  Bake until the crust is golden brown.
