Margherita Pizza

TIP: For best results with raw dough use parchment paper with flour to build your pizza on a cutting board. Once the SearPlate is preheated, use a wooden cutting board to slide the fresh pizza with parchment paper onto the SearPlate. After 3-4 minutes of cook time, carefully remove the parchment paper from the bottom of the pizza.

  • Step 1

    Install SearPlate in the bottom level of the unit, then close door. Select FRESH PIZZA, set temperature to 500°F, and set time to 7 minutes. Press the setting dial to begin preheating. The timer will start counting down as soon as the unit has preheated. Simply turn the dial to add time, or prep ingredients beforehand.

  • Step 2

    While unit is preheating, lightly coat a rolling pin with flour, then roll to flatten out dough into a 12-inch round circle about 1 /4-inch thick. Use the Pizza Dough Guide on page 18 for how to best roll out your dough. Transfer pizza dough to a sheet of parchment paper.

  • Step 3

    Top the dough with marinara sauce, mozzarella, and Parmesan cheese. Then use a pastry brush or your fingers to gently rub olive oil onto the outer edge of the dough

  • Step 4

    When unit has preheated, open door, then using the parchment paper, carefully transfer the pizza to hot SearPlate. After 4 minutes of cooking, open door and carefully pull the parchment paper out from under the pizza, allowing the pizza to go directly onto the SearPlate. Close door to finish cooking.

  • Step 5

    When cooking is complete, carefully remove pizza from the hot SearPlate. Let pizza cool for 5 minutes, then garnish with fresh basil, and serve.
