Turn your oven to the highest heat possible. If you have a convection oven, or even better one with a pizza setting, turn those settings on.
Let your oven warm up completely. This takes at least 20 minutes, but for some models it can take up to one hour.
Get your pizza ready in a pizza pan with the sauce and the toppings.
Place your pizza pan with your pizza on the lowest rack of your oven.
Baking time depends on your oven and pizza size. I find a regular pizza needs approx. 10 minutes, while a small pizza is baked in 8 minutes.
Your pizza is ready when it has a crisp, slightly browned edge. Take it out of the oven, and let it rest for 1 minute.
Your perfectly baked homemade pizza is now ready to be served.
