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.

  • italian sausage
  • mushrooms
  • mozzarella cheese
  • manchenco cheese
  • white cheddar cheese


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • My mother said the pizza crust came out much nicer than hers normally does. More crunchy, less soggy.
  • Once the dough is all spread on the tray and oiled, layer your toppings. Sauce first, then cheese, then meat, then oven.
