loren's pizza recipe




  • 400g King Arthur Sir Lancelot flour
  • 260g water (~65%)
  • 5 to 10g salt
  • 10g agave syrup / honey / sugar
  • 5g SAF instant yeast

combine flour salt & yeast in a large bowl

dissolve the sugar into the water and combine with dry ingredients by hand until the mixture forms a shaggy dough

sit covered for 20 minutes to hydrate the dough

you can knead the dough a little, but it doesn't need much

divide the dough into 3 portions (should be slightly less than 230g each) and fold each into a ball

refrigerate for 24-72 hours



  • 1 can Cento San Marzano tomatoes
  • Cento tomato paste (to taste)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • oregano
  • garlic
  • olive oil

take the tomatos out of the can, one by one, rinse them (this is important!) and pat dry

crush them by hand into a bowl or mason jar

add olive oil, salt, pepper, oregano & garlic (can be minced, powdered, whatever) to taste

stick blend for a smoother sauce, otherwise leave it chunky (up to you)

if you get heartburn easily, or experience a stomachache after eating your pies, try adding 1/4 tsp of baking soda to your sauce

store in a jar in the fridge overnight, you can use it immediately, but it's much better the next day


  • low moisture whole milk mozzarella
  • shredded parmesan
  • (optional) asiago, fontina, provelone, etc

to reiterate: low moisture whole milk mozzarella

as long as most of the cheese is mozz, you can do whatever you like here

try to keep the ratio of cheese to sauce 1:1

step by step

take the dough out of the fridge and let it come to room temperature (covered)

preheat oven as hot as it will go with a pizza steel inside, the longer the better

using your fingertips gently press a circle into the dough leaving 1" of the edge untouched (for the crust)

stretch the dough (using your knuckles) into a 12" circle, avoid touching the edge too much, be gentle!

put a generous amount of semolina flour onto a pizza peel and lay the dough on it

scooping from the top of the jar with a spoon, add 2 or 3 spoonfuls of sauce to the dough

add cheese

slide the pizza onto your hot pizza steel and cook until the cheese is melted and the crust begins to speckle and brown, ideally 5-8 minutes, but don't be afraid to leave it in there a little longer.

rest for a minute or two and enjoy!
