I am very excited to present to you my latest pizza recipe! I have been making pizzas at home for many years using different equipment and techniques, but I have to say that this latest recipe is not only the easiest, it also gives the best results!
This recipe will give you a pizza that has a beautiful cornicione that is covered with parmesan cheese and is super crispy on the outside while still having a light and moist crumb. The bottom is also nicely charred and crisp!
Get creative with different toppings and have yourself a pizza party!
