Here are the ingredients you'll need to make this pizza recipe!

Take the pizza dough out of the fridge 60-90 minutes before stretching it. Preheat a baking steel at 500°F for one hour.

Make the no-cook pizza sauce by mixing together tomato sauce, oregano, basil, salt, and grated garlic.

Hand stretch the pizza dough on a well floured surface.

Arrange the pizza dough on a pizza peel lightly dusted with semolina flour.

Spread a thin layer of pizza sauce with the back of a spoon.

Add the low-moisture whole milk mozzarella cheese next.

Top with pepperoni. Leave space between the slices so the pizza doesn't get soupy.

Finish with a generous dusting of finely grated parmesan cheese.

Pecorino romano cheese also works well here!

Shimmy the pizza to make sure it's not stuck.

Bake on a preheated baking steel for 4-8 minutes, broiling for the final minute.

Top with fresh basil and slice immediately!
