1 large pizza


Choose your measure:



  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup thinly sliced zucchini
  • 1 1/2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup corn kernels, fresh of frozen/thawed
  • 1 small red onion (3 ounces), thinly sliced


  1. To make the crust: Mix and knead together all of the ingredients until a soft, smooth dough forms.
  2. Let the dough rise, covered, for 45 to 60 minutes, then refrigerate it for 4 hours (or for up to 36 hours).
  3. To prepare the pizza: With lightly greased hands, stretch the dough onto a lightly greased sheet of parchment into a rectangle about 15" x 11".
  4. Cover and let the dough rest for 45 to 60 minutes.
  5. Place a baking stone in the middle of your oven, and an oven rack above it. Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  6. Spread the tomato sauce onto the dough.
  7. Transfer the pizza and parchment to the hot stone with a peel or giant spatula. Bake it for 6 to 8 minutes, then remove it from the oven.
  8. Distribute the cheese over the sauce, then top each corner with one of the four remaining toppings.
  9. Return the pizza to the top rack, and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until the crust is nicely browned.
  10. Remove the pizza from the oven, and serve hot or warm.
  11. Yield: 1 large pizza.
