Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use different meats for this pizza?

Yes, feel free to customize the toppings according to your preference. Chicken, ground beef, or even prosciutto can be delicious substitutes.

Do I have to use a pizza stone?

No, a baking sheet can work as well, but a pizza stone provides a crispier crust.


  • Swap the pizza dough for a gluten-free version if needed.
  • If you don’t have pizza sauce on hand, a simple tomato sauce, or even a white sauce, can do the trick.
  • For a dairy-free option, use a plant-based cheese alternative.


  • Problem: My pizza dough is too sticky. Solution: Gradually add more flour, a tablespoon at a time, until the dough becomes less sticky and easier to work with.
  • Problem: My pizza is too soggy. Solution: You may have overloaded your pizza with toppings. Try using less next time and ensure your oven is preheated properly before baking.

Tips for the Perfect Pizza

  • Preheat the oven and pizza stone (if using) for a crispy crust.
  • Roll your dough evenly to prevent any thin spots that could tear.
  • To prevent sogginess, don’t overload your pizza with too many toppings.
