We have perfected various types of pizza dough over the years, but our go-to for producing fantastic artisan pizza remains the first one we ever created. Use a pizza stone for the finest results. You may also choose for one of our other pizza dough preparation options, such as a pan pizza with a thicker crust or a huge sheet pan pizza that serves as the base for three individual pizzas. The available pizza crusts are as follows:
- The Gold Standard for Pizza Crust! When baked on a pizza stone, this dough yields a medium-sized pizza in the artisanal style. The dough may be easily transferred to the stone with the use of a pizza peel (see below).
- To make a thin crust pizza, this dough may be rolled out instead of stretched.

Vegetarians may feel safe making this feta pizza.
- A third of a cup of homemade pizza sauce
- 1/25th of an olive
- Two cups of spinach, either baby or chopped
- Just a little bit of salt and garlic powder, maybe a pinch
- Four sliced Kalamata olives (optional)
- Chopped artichoke hearts, about a quarter cup
- Fifteen red onion slices
- Approximately 4 cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
- 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese, shredded
- Half a cup of feta cheese
- A quarter of a teaspoon of dried oregano
- 4 leaves of basil (optional)
- Prepare the pizza crust: For the dough, you may use either the Best Pizza Dough, the Thin Crust Pizza Dough, or the Pizza Oven Dough recipes. (Preparation time is about 15 minutes, and relaxation time is around 45 minutes.)
- Pre-heat the oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit and put a pizza stone inside. OR fire up your pizza oven (here’s the one we use).
- To prepare pizza sauce, Prepare the Pizza Sauce from Scratch. (About a third of a cup will do for the pizza; you can store the rest of the sauce in the fridge for up to a week.)
- Make the garnishes: Lightly heat the olive oil in a skillet. Throw in the spinach, along with a touch of salt and a bit of garlic powder. Cook the spinach for 2 minutes over medium heat, or until it wilts. Cut the Kalamata olives in half, the artichoke hearts into small pieces, the red onion into thin slices, and the cherry tomatoes into small wedges.
- Preparing to bake a pizza: When the oven is hot, sprinkle cornmeal or semolina flour on a pizza peel. (You may use the back of a rimmed baking sheet or a rimless baking sheet if you don’t have a pizza peel. However, purchasing a pizza peel is money well spent. See How to Stretch Pizza Dough for details on how to shape the dough into a circular. Then, transfer the dough on the pizza peel with care.
- Coat the dough with a little coating of pizza sauce. Throw in some mozzarella. Spread the spinach on the plate, then sprinkle over the olives, artichoke hearts, red onion, and tomatoes. The feta cheese and dried oregano should be sprinkled on top. You may season it with a bit of kosher salt and some freshly ground pepper.
- Carefully slide the pizza off the peel and onto the prepared pizza stone. Five to seven minutes in the oven should be plenty to get a golden brown crust and melted cheese (or 1 to 2 minutes in a pizza oven).
- It’s best to wait a minute or two after the pizza has finished baking before topping it with basil (whole leaves, lightly torn, or thinly sliced). Cut into pieces and serve straightaway.
