Make pizza like a pro in a flash with the Breville Smart Oven Pizzaiolo. This indoor countertop oven reaches super-hot temperatures, creating the perfect environment for baking Neapolitan-style pizzas. Here we top the dough with tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella and basil for a classic pizza Margherita, but feel free to get creative and prepare your own signature pies. If you don’t have a pizzaiolo, you can use a regular oven: preheat a pizza stone at 500°F (260°C), then bake the pizza for about 8 minutes.
Preheat a Breville pizzaiolo to 750°F (399°C).
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pizza dough into a 10-inch (25-cm) round. Transfer the dough to a floured pizza peel. Spread the tomato sauce evenly on the dough, leaving a 1-inch (2.5-cm) border uncovered. Arrange the mozzarella on top.
Using a pizza peel, transfer the pizza to the pizzaiolo’s pizza stone. Close the oven door and bake until the pizza crust is crispy and golden brown, 2 minutes.
Using the pizza peel, transfer the pizza to a cutting board, top with the basil leaves and sprinkle with flaky sea salt. Cut into slices and serve warm. Makes one 10-inch (25-cm) pizza.
