  • 1 pizza dough*
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves


  • Preheat the oven and a baking sheet to 475°F / 250°C for 20-30 minutes. If you are baking with a pizza steel, preheat for 45-60 minutes.
  • If you have a pizza peel, sprinkle it generously with semolina and set it aside. Otherwise, sprinkle a piece of parchment paper with semolina and set aside.
  • Combine the olive oil and garlic and set aside.
  • Prepare the pizza dough according to the instructions, divide it in half, and shape it to your liking. Transfer the dough to the prepared pizza peel or baking paper and sprinkle the parmesan evenly on top.
  • Transfer the crust to the oven and bake until it is baked through. The baking time depends on which dough you choose, how thick it is, and what equipment you use. If you use and follow my pizza dough recipe, bake for 5-7 minutes when using a pizza steel and for 8-12 minutes when using a baking sheet. If you use storebought pizza dough, follow the directions on the package.
  • Remove the pizza crust from the oven, brush the garlic oil with the garlic pieces on top, and serve.



All ingredients are calculated to make two 8-inch (20cm) pizzas. I recommend preparing one pizza at a time. When the first one is in the oven, prepare the second. It's easier to handle two small pizzas than one large one.

* You can use either store-bought dough, yeast pizza dough, or sourdough pizza dough.
