For the pizza dough

The trick to the best red pepper pizza? Homemade pizza dough. There are several options for dough depending on your preferences and what tools you have available. The first recipe is our standard, but the others are great alternatives.

There are a few other styles of pizza dough that also work here. You can try a Pan Pizza in a cast iron skillet, no special pizza tools required. Or, make our Best-Ever Sheet Pan Pizza: it makes a double recipe in a large sheet pan, perfect for serving a crowd.

Pizza making tools

You’ll need a few tools if you choose the standard or thin crust dough recipes. Again, if you chose the pan pizza or sheet pan pizza recipes above, no extra tools are needed!

Instructions

  1. Make the pizza dough: Follow the Best Pizza DoughThin Crust Pizza Dough or Pizza Oven Dough recipes to prepare the dough. (This takes about 15 minutes to make and 45 minutes to rest.)
  2. Place a pizza stone in the oven and preheat to 500°F. OR preheat your pizza oven (here’s the pizza oven we use).
  3. Make the pizza sauce: Make the Homemade Pizza Sauce. (You’ll use about ½ cup for the pizza; reserve the remaining sauce and refrigerate for up to 1 week.)
  4. Bake the pizza: When the oven is ready, dust a pizza peel with cornmeal or semolina flour. (If you don’t have a pizza peel, you can use a rimless baking sheet or the back of a rimmed baking sheet. But a pizza peel is well worth the investment!) Stretch the dough into a circle; see How to Stretch Pizza Dough for instructions. Then gently place the dough onto the pizza peel.
  5. Spread a thin layer of the pizza sauce over the dough. Add the mozzarella cheese. Add the red pepper strips and sprinkle with feta cheese. 
  6. Use the pizza peel to carefully transfer the pizza onto the preheated pizza stone. Bake the pizza until the cheese and crust are nicely browned, about 5 to 7 minutes in the oven (or 1 to 2 minutes in a pizza oven).
  7. Allow the pizza to cool for a minute or two before adding the fresh oregano leaves. Slice into pieces and serve immediately.
