Pizza with Squash Blossoms and Fresh Mozzarella

Yield: 2 ea. 10-12 in. pizzas


Ingredients

2 ea.  7 oz.  Wood Stone Dough balls
3 oz.  Pizza Sauce
16 ea. squash blossoms, fuzzy stamens removed
4 oz.   fresh mozzarella, sliced and torn into small pieces


Preparation

Oven Temperature: 550-580 degrees

To assemble pizzas, place half of the sauce in the center of each pizza and use a circular motion to spread it to about 3/4-in. from the edge. Arrange blossoms in a spiral pattern with the tips of the flowers at the edge of the crusts. Scatter mozzarella over each pie, making sure that some of the pretty yellow is still showing through.

Flame Height: 3.6

Transfer the pizza onto the large peel and land it just inside the doorway. Once the pizza begins to color nicely on the side closest to the flame (about 2-3 minutes), rotate the pizza 180-degrees using the utility peel and move it closer to the flame. Once the side closest to the flame begins to brown, and the top and bottom of the pizza are evenly colored (30 seconds to 1 minute), remove the pizza from the oven using the utility peel. Transfer the pizza to a cooling screen for about 1 minute to prevent steaming and then move it to a cutting board to slice.
