Tony Gemignani is a World Pizza Champion and successful restaurateur. With credentials like his, you know this Grandma Pizza recipe is going to be dynamite. And, it is. We especially love this recipe’s last step: “Finish with a dusting of Pecorino and oregano and a drizzle of garlic oil.”
This is not a recipe per se, but more of a guideline for the ambitious chef that just wants to know the basics, and then put their own spin on the Grandma pizza. PMQ Magazine does a great job of not only providing a step-by-step guide, but also offering context on the origins of Grandma pizza.
For the home baker, this simple recipe from Bon Appétit is straight-forward and easy to bake. As the recipe warns, don’t get crazy with the mozzarella cheese. Although it’s hard to think, sometimes too much cheese can be bad for pizza.
