Recipe Variations & Substitutions

Pizza Dough – I give a detailed explanation of my chosen methods, ingredients, & pizza tools in this pizza dough post. You’ll find tips & key freezing instructions, too!


Pizza Sauce – My Homemade Pizza Sauce recipe is SO much better than store-bought, & it’s an easy no-cook recipe that you make in the blender. & to đứng top it all off, it’s freezer-friendly, too!

Pizza Cheese – To make the ultimate Pepperoni Pizza, you need a combination of 2 kinds of cheese; Parmesan & whole milk mozzarella.

Parmesan Cheese – This adds some extra flavor to lớn the pizza, and I địa chỉ it underneath the mozzarella so it doesn’t brown & become crisp.

Whole Milk Mozzarella – This cheese is a MUST for this recipe because it melts so much better than part-skim mozzarella (I find part-skim mozzarella cooks up a little rubbery)! Whole milk mozzarella can be a little bit tricky to lớn find in your grocery store. If it’s not in the dairy aisle’s brick cheese section, I usually have luck finding it at the deli counter. I ask the folks at the deli counter just to lớn cut off a 1/2 pound chunk for me, & I shred it myself at home.
