I love Carapelli as they truly care about sustainability, it’s a big reason why I always purchase their olive oil beyond taste and the fact that I’m obsessed with their bottles!

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

To make the dough: In a medium bowl, add the flour, sea salt, olive oil, and water. Mix together with your hands until a shaggy dough forms. Allow the dough to rest for 5 to 10 minutes, this helps the gluten relax, making it easier to work with.

Step 2

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and sprinkle with cornmeal. 

Step 3

Lightly flour a work surface. Turn the dough onto the work surface and lightly flour. Roll out with a rolling pin long and thin, about 15-inches long. 

Drizzle the dough with olive oil and use the back of a spoon to spread it evenly. Using a fork, poke the dough with holes everywhere. 

Step 4

Bake the dough alone for 13 to 15 minutes, until it looks dry. Remove from the oven.

Step 5

Add the marinara sauce and spread evenly. Add the mozzarella and pepperonis. 

Step 6

Return to the oven and bake for another 13 to 15 minutes, until the cheese is lightly browned. Top the pizza with fresh basil and cut into strips.
