Deluxe Pizza Recipe And Tutorial

Deluxe/ Supreme Pizza

This post will cover how to make a deluxe pizza or supreme pizza, complete with recipe and written and video tutorials (video is at the bottom of the page).  Whether you call it deluxe, supreme or even garbage pizza, it all means the same thing.  A pizza with a bunch of toppings.  My deluxe pizza recipe, which is what we’re making today, will include the following: pepperoni, hot italian sausage, fresh mushrooms, green peppers, red onions and banana peppers on traditional pizza sauce.  Sound good?  Okay, let’s get started.

Equipment and Utensils

Before we spin out your pie, let’s look at the equipment and utensils you will need.  If you are using store bought dough balls, you are one step ahead already.  If do-it-yourself more suits your pizza making style, then you will need a countertop mixer to mix your dough.  My dough recipe is scaled down to fit in a countertop mixer.  You are more than welcome to use it.

The next thing we will be using is a pizza screen.  This tutorial we will be spinning out a 16 inch pie, so we will use a 16 inch pizza screen.  You can find everything from a 8 inch screen to a 20 inch screen. Pick a size that fits you and your oven.

You will need something to move your pizza pie in and out of the oven.  You can use a baking sheet, pizza pan (more on that in a minute), or you can get a wooden pizza peel.  If you are purchasing a pizza peel, I recommend a wooden one.  The metal pizza peels are not sturdy.

A pizza pan will come in handy for cutting and serving your amazing pie.  You can also use it to get your hot pizza out of the oven.  I recommend a pizza peel but a pizza pan will work if you’re in a jam.  Pizza pans come in many different sizes so get the one that will fit your needs.

The last two things on our list are a ladle (6oz ladle for a 16 inch pie) and a pizza cutter. The ladle we will use to measure and spread our pizza sauce.  The pizza cutter we are going to use for separating the hydrogen and helium atoms, thus breaking the covalent bond… Just seeing if you’re still with me, we cut the pizza with the pizza cutter.

So in review we will need all or some of the following, depending on what’s already in your kitchen.

Deluxe Pizza Ingredients

Deluxe pizzas are easy to make an top.  Sometimes if you go crazy on the toppings they can be hard to bake.  If I’m making a pizza with more than three toppings, I scale back on the amount of each topping I use.  For a deluxe pizza your shopping list will have a bunch of items.  The good news is you just need to get a small amount of each item.  Here is the list of ingredients you will need for your deluxe pie.  Note: this is for a 16 inch pizza.

Homemade Meatball Recipe With Tutorial

meatballs recipe with tutorial
In this post we will go over my homemade meatball recipe with a tutorial for you to follow along with.  People take pride in their homemade meatballs, as they should.  I like to think of them in the same family as chili, BBQ and gumbo.  Not because they are similar foods, but because people take pride in their recipe and technique they use to cook.  This meatball recipe will give you some bragging rights.

Equipment and Utensils

The one thing you will need for this recipe is a mixer of some kind.  You can use a hand mixer if you have one.  I suggest you use a tabletop mixer. They are getting cheaper and they really lighten the workload in the kitchen.  Plus you can mix your own pizza sauce, pizza dough.

To weigh out your meatballs you can do one of two things.  First you can weigh each meatball separately using a scale.  Or you can get an ice cream scoop and speed up the entire process.  I like the size the half ounce ice cream scoop provides . You will also need a set of measuring cups and spoons and a small amount of cooking oil.  The final piece of equipment you will need is a baking sheet.  That’s it as far as equipment and utensils go, so let’s get to the recipe.

Meatball Recipe


There is no special order to mixing up your ingredients.  I add the ingredients just as they are on the recipe.  Let it mix for about 3 minutes and you’re ready to start balling up your meat.  Like I said earlier, the easiest way to accomplish this is with an ice cream scoop.  I stuuf the meat into the ice cream scoop and level it off with my hand.  Repeat until you have all your meat portioned out the same.

Turning your portioned out meat into balls takes just a few minutes.  Before we start, let’s add a light coat of cooking oil on your baking sheet. Not to much, we don’t want to fry the bottom of the meatballs, just enough so they won’t stick.  It’s time to be a baller!!

Grab a blob that you portioned out earlier and roll it around between your palms until you have an uncooked meatball.  Repeat until all of your meat is balled up.  Arrange them evenly on the baking sheet.  You will need to preheat your oven to 400.  Cook your meatballs for ten minutes then flip them.  Cook them another 10 minutes and cut one open.  If you see zero pink, you are done.  Let them cool before you refrigerate.  If you used a bigger ice cream scoop you will want to bake them a couple minutes more.

I hope you had fun and learned something.  Let me know in the comments below how it turned out.  You can also contact me if you have any questions.
