Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • Olive oil, for greasing and drizzling
  • 12 ounces pre-made raw pizza dough, room temperature
  • 1 cup fresh ricotta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon basil pesto
  • 1 teaspoon garlic and herb seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 cup shredded low-moisture mozzarella cheese
  • 3/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 5 ounces sliced cooked mushrooms
  • Chopped parsley, for garnish


  • 10 inch x 10 inch square pan
  • Plastic Wrap
  • Medium Bowl
  • Step 1

    Grease the bottom and sides of a 10-inch x 10-inch or 8-inch x 8-inch square pan with the olive oil. Stretch and toss dough by hand and place in prepared pan, making sure the surface of the pan is covered. Then, cover the dough with plastic wrap and let rest for about 10 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Install the Accessory Frame in the bottom level of the unit, then place the Pizza Stone on top. Turn left-hand dial to select PIZZA, then use the right-hand dial to select PAN, and set time for 10 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin preheating (preheating will take approx. 10 minutes).

  • Step 3

    Remove plastic wrap from dough and evenly sprinkle half of the mozzarella cheese around the edges of the dough and the sides of the pan. In a medium bowl, combine the ricotta, pesto, seasonings, and half the Parmesan cheese. Drizzle olive oil over the dough, then poke indents using your fingers. Evenly spread ricotta mixture over dough, then top with mushrooms, remaining Parmesan, and mozzarella.

  • Step 4

    When unit is preheated and ADD FOOD and PRS STRT is displayed, open door and place pan on stone. Close door, select START/STOP, and cook for 15 minutes. If more time is necessary or a darker pizza is desired, increase the time using the right-hand dial.

  • Step 5

    When cooking is completed, open door and remove pan. Let rest for 5 minutes before cutting and garnishing with parsley.
