  • 1 cup warm water
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 recipe pizza sauce

BB-8

  • 12 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 orange bell pepper
  • 3 ounces whole black olives
  • 1 cherry tomato

Equipment

  • Sharp cutting knife

Let’s get started!

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Lightly dust a baking sheet with cornmeal.
  2. In a medium bowl dissolve the yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
  3. Stir in flour, salt and oil. Beat until smooth and then let rest for 5 minutes.
  4. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide the dough into 2/3rds and 1/3. Pat each portion into a circle and roll to about ¼-inch thick. Place each circle onto one baking sheet so that the two circles are touching and shape the smaller top circle to fit around the larger bottom circle.
  5. Let the pizza rest, covered for 15 minutes.
  6. Prick the dough with a fork and bake for 5 minutes.
  7. Coat the pizza with a thin layer of sauce, leaving a thin border around the edge.

  5. Use the chopped olives to make the remaining black details on the robot.
  6. Bake pizza again for 10 to 12 minutes.
