Nonni’s Italian Pizza

We visited my mom for a few weeks during the fall. The central point to our visit was the food! She cooked up a storm and I was there to shoot the pictures, and sample of course! Who could complain? This pizza was very different to mine and all with a few variations of toppings. Normally, my pizza is simple; mozzarella, tomatoes and basil. I learned it was fun to change things around on the pizza toppings. I hope you enjoy the variations too.

  1. Prepare the dough (search for pizza a la giovanni), add a bit of olive oil on the dough once it’s been spread out on the pizza tray.
  2. I prepared the pizza’s @ my mom’s house by spreading out the dough with my fingers (no rolling pin), adding a bit of olive oil, then the toppings.
  3. My mother said the pizza crust came out much nicer than hers normally does. More crunchy, less soggy.
  4. Once the dough is all spread on the tray and oiled, layer your toppings. Sauce first, then cheese, then meat, then oven.
