  • Pizza Stone OR Round Pizza Baking Pan


  • 1 package Birrittellas Traditional Pizza Dough
  • 1/4 cup Flour
  • 8 oz Shredded Provolone & Mozzarella Blend
  • 1/2 cup Pizza Sauce
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/2 Green Pepper, Sliced
  • 1/2 Red Pepper, Sliced
  • 1/2 cup Caramelized Onions
  • 3/4 lb Shredded Beef Steak, Cooked


  • ** Be sure to allow your dough to come to room temperature before stretching. (About 2 hours) **
  • Preheat your oven to 475 degrees. If using a pizza stone, let it heat up for 20 mins in the oven.
  • Flour your work area along with your dough.
  • Begging pressing through the center working from the inside out to form the shape of your dough. Do this for a few minutes until your dough starts to widen out a bit.
  • Then pick up your dough, place your fist in the center, then, using your other hand, pull away in a circular motion to stretch the dough. Repeat this about 5 times then place your dough down to rest for 5-10 mins.
  • After resting, pick your dough up and repeat your circular stretching motion. By now it should be much easier to work with and should become about a 14”-16” wide pizza.
  • Oil your pizza pan with olive and place your dough on top.
  • Add your pizza sauce, cheese, shredded beef steak, sliced peppers and caramelized onion.
  • Bake for 18-20 mins or until crust becomes lightly golden and crispy.
  • Each oven is different so be sure to check about halfway through. Add a minute or two more if necessary to bake.
  • Enjoy!

Important Dough Guidelines

  1. Keep in the fridge for up to 50 days.
    ** Speed up proofing by placing the vacuum-sealed dough in a bowl of hot water. Let it sit for 20 minutes or until the center reaches room temperature. **

  2. Round the dough with flour to prevent sticking, brush with olive oil, put in a bowl, and cover.

  3. Let the dough rise for at least 3.5 hours before using.

  4. Preheat your oven to 475°F or higher, if possible.

    Rounding pizza dough is a crucial step in the pizza-making process.
