New York-Style Pizza

The perfect pizza starts with the Perfect Crust. That’s why Ive posted a couple of outstanding recipes for pizza dough on todays blog, as well as this terrific New York-Style Pizza recipe, the one above for Pear ’n’ Prosciutto Pizza, and the one just after this for Turkey-Pineapple Pizza. If you’ve landed on this recipe as a stand-alone, search the Index under Pizza to find what you’re seeking. 

New York-Style Pizza: 

One 12-in. (30 cm) thin-crust pizza, purchased or homemade
½ c. tomato sauce
¾ c. shredded Mozzarella cheese, divided
2-to-4 oz. salami, thinly sliced (see Note)
¼ c. chopped green bell pepper (capsicum”)
¼ c. chopped onion
¼ c. sliced black olives, well drained
¼ c. sliced fresh mushrooms
Dried basil and oregano, as needed

Preheat oven to 450 deg. F. Spread tomato sauce over unbaked pizza crust using back of spoon or spatula. Top with ½ c. Mozzarella and remaining ingredients in order given. Dust with basil, oregano, and remaining Mozzarella. Bake 20-to-25 min.

Note: If you prefer, substitute ¼ lb. ground beef, (optional), cooked, seasoned to taste, and well drained of fat, for the salami in this recipe.

Bake and eat! Don't worry if your pizza crust is slightly
