Let me tell you that I am so happy today is Friday and we have a weekend ahead of us. Nothing special just a regular weekend and not an extra holiday on Monday but still very happy! A sense of relaxation in the air even though I probably won't relax much, point is, weekends are there to remind us to slow down and breath just a little deeper.
With that out the way, I am very excited to be sharing this delicious salami pizza with you. I've also shared this pizza dough recipe if you want all the details or you can find the recipe in the recipe card below.
Salami Pizza Ingredients
What exactly is on a salami pizza you may ask?
Well, salami for sure, cherry tomatoes and mozzarella cheese all over a robust pizza sauce and that's it! Okay and some spice if you like, oregano or choose from this spice collection. Remember that because there's such a few ingredients make sure you use a good salami, it really adds to the flavor of the pizza. I love mozzarella cheese on pizza and the cherry tomatoes, once the pizza comes out the oven, are bursting with flavor.
How To Make Salami Pizza
For this recipe, I've used my homemade pizza dough which we've used since the beginning when our children were still small. We've always made this recipe because it's so dependable and when our children are home everyone gets involved! If for some reason I've made the dough and frozen it, all I do then is take it out the freezer either the night before or very early the next morning (to make that afternoon), and it thaws out beautifully.
Roll the dough out to the desired shape. You might be making it in a pizza tray but you also might be making it in an oven tray which is what we mostly use. Then do the toppings.
Out of habit I always give the base a few piercings with a fork and then brush it with olive oil. Brushing the base and crust with olive oil is something I saw my mother in law today and it just stuck with me. Piercing the base with a fork was self taught after I once saw my pizza puff up a little too much in the oven! I figured if it works with Homemade Pie Crust it will work with pizza and it does.
Tips To Make Salami Pizza
- Oven Temperature Make sure you get your oven to the hottest it can go. For a hot home oven the temperature would be 200–230 °C / 400–450 °F or for a very hot home oven the temp is around 230–260 °C/ 450-500 °F
- Ingredients This pizza has salami, mozzarella and cheese, make these few ingredients the best you can buy.
- Flavor Add olive oil to the base and crust and add a small drizzle before it goes into the oven over the toppings, about a quarter teaspoon.
- Seasoning Again, the power of seasoning should never be underestimated when added to food. Whether it's during cooking or after. Try adding your favorite seasoning in layers over your pizza. Sprinkle your seasoning over the sauce, tomatoes and final product, creating layers of flavor.
- Toppings Always make sure that your pizza is already in the pizza pan when you add the toppings. Transferring an already loaded pizza to the baking pizza tray can result in a bit of a disaster. If that does happen, try sprinkling flour gradually underneath as you rotate the pizza, with the help of an egg lifter. Once the underneath is loose, slide (rather than lift) it off onto the baking/pizza pan.
