I could've sworn that a traditional margherita used tomatoes, not tomato sauce...

I definitely ascribe to less is more on my pizza. A simple pepperoni and/or plain pizza works for me. At the risk of being too judgmental, I don't understand pizza with the entire vegetable crisper contents and various meats on a smorgasbord pizza. I have never tried making my own pizza, but, this is simple enough that I Wil.

I worked making pizza 40 yrs ago and used to be able to toss dough. I have been experimenting with making low carb pizza and my techniques are very similar to yours except I pre-cook the crust, either in a pizza pan on the stove or in the oven, because low-carb flour is hard to get really thin without breaking it. When my oven bake control broke, I began making them on hi, then low broil with good results. Also, I have tolerated extra toppings. Thanks for the suggestion to keep it simple. Any advice on low carb pizza appreciated.

I love homemade pizza, I can't wait to try this! If you're like me and you don't own a pizza stone, a quick substitute is to take a cast iron skillet and flip it upside down and bake the pizza on the bottom of the cast iron skillet!

Jerry Corso makes this look so easy! Can't wait to try his version on the grill this summer and when I do not feel like cooking than I'll just pop by his restaurant!

Love this video. The recipe turned out perfect. I was able to make 4 small pizzas from the recipe. I love how the crust flavor is nice and light. I will be making this often! I finally found a homeade pizza dough that's perfect.
