  • One homemade pizza ready to be baked. See recipe for instructions.


  • 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.
