Bertello Sweet & Spicy

20 minutes Prep
60 seconds - 2 minutes Cooking
Serves 2-4
Outdoor Pizza Oven
  • Tomato sauce
  • Parmigiano reggiano cheese
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Soppressata picante
  • Hot Honey
    1. Let pizza dough get to room temperature. If using Bertello Pizza Dough, divide dough ball in half, then form each half into a dough ball to make two 12" pizzas. Flour pizza dough and stretch into two circular shaped pizzas. Get dough thin enough so you can barely see light coming through the dough. If it's too thin, it could rip.
    2. Flour your pizza peel, then place dough on top of pizza peel. You will build your pizza on the peel.
    3. Add approximately 2 tablespoons of Tomato sauce and spread evenly over the crust, living about 1/2" from the outside crust of the pizza. Don't use too much sauce, as this will make your pizza soggy.
    4. sprinkle on shredded parmigiano reggiano cheese over the entire pizza
    5. rip off pieces of fresh mozzarella cheese and place them on top of the pizza.
    6. Add thin slices of soppressata picante to the top of the pizza.
    7. After your Bertello Oven has preheated to a temp of 700-800 in the middle of the stone (800-900 in the very back of the stone) turn the gas burner to low, add about 2 thick wood chunks or pieces of wood kindling to the back of the oven. Allow this to catch on fire, then launch your pizza into the oven. Rotate the pizza every 20 to 25 seconds at quarter rotations.
    8. After you finish cooking your pizza, drizzle some hot honey on top of the pizza.
