  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

  2. Top each pizza with 1 oz pizza sauce and 1 oz mozzarella cheese, then cook.

*You don't have to have a fancy pizza oven to make pizza at home. All you need is a pizza stone. Add the pizza stone to your oven and heat to 500⁰ F. When the oven is ready, carefully move your pizza to the stone with a pizza peel.
