PREPARATION:

Dough

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Topping

    1. Increase the oven temperature to 220°C.

    3. Cut two slices of bell pepper and dice them. Place the bell pepper and black olives on the dough.
    4. Put the pan back in the oven and bake for another 8-10 minutes or until the mozzarella melts.
    5. Remove the pizza from the pan using a spatula and serve it on a plate.
