1 crispy, crunchy pizza

Ingredients Nutrition

  • pizza dough
  • oil or cooking spray
  • cornmeal or flour, for dusting


  1. Grease a cookie sheet or baking pan with cooking spray or oil.
  2. With a very fine pinch, lightly dust the greased surface with some flour or cornmeal for easy extraction.
  3. Stretch out the pizza dough into the pan or cookie sheet according to how much you're making, and poke some holes in it with a fork.
  4. Bake at 400F for 5-8 minutes depending on the size. Me, I make mostly 8" crusts or small rectangles on the cookie sheet so I only need about 5-6 minutes.
  5. Pull the pan/sheet out of the oven but don't take the dough off. Add your sauce, cheese, toppings, etc.
  6. Put it back in to bake for about 10-20 minutes depending on size and amount of toppings. Just until thoroughly cooked.
  7. Turn the broiler on and let it broil for 3-8 minutes depending on pizza size.
  8. Voila, you have a thoroughly cooked pizza with a nice crispy crust that isn't soggy on the bottom!
