Dear Healthyish friends,

I miss restaurants in general, but I especially miss restaurant pizza: beautifully puffy, too hot to eat immediately, with big, charred bubbles that shatter at the touch. And if you’ve ever made DIY pizza, you know it’s...very-hard-to-impossible to recreate it at home.

This is the secret ingredient for a perfect pizza dough

 This is the secret ingredient for a perfect pizza dough How do I bake the perfect traditional Italian pizza at home? With this secret ingredient, your pizza tastes like your favorite Italian! © istockphoto Are you already making your pizza dough with this secret ingredient? istockphoto Comfortable at home after work or after a night of drinking on the way home: nothing is as tasty as a pizza. As it is known that home-made still tastes best, we will tell you our secret ingredient for a successful pizza dough: Lievito Madre .

But as long as you’re not trying to turn out Roberta’s-quality pies, pizza night is simple enough to pull off (on a weeknight, no less!)—you just need a plan and a few staples. Here’s how a group of friends and I went about it on a recent Tuesday night.

The first issue was figuring out the dough, which I was more than happy to pass to my friend Alex, an extraordinary home bread-baker. She slow-fermented a batch of sourdough pizza dough, then shaped the dough into five small pies and par-baked them until they were firm but not quite cooked through. And then she somehow figured out how to stack all the pies on top of one another and bike them over to my stoop. Hero.

Meanwhile, I cranked my own oven to 500°F so that I could get the pies in the oven as soon as I finished topping them. I thawed some extra pizza sauce I’d frozen when I cross-tested Sarah Jampel’s new Vegetarian Pan Pizza With Lots of Greens, which is a great, not-scary baking project to take on if you conquered your fear of yeast by making Basically’s No-Knead Focaccia. (You could use either recipe to make the dough for your own DIY pies.)

Our friend Zach brought an assortment of toppings (black olives, mushrooms, spicy soppressata, arugula, ricotta) that I combined to make four different pies, plus a side of garlicky breadsticks. Each pie got a drizzle of good olive oil, grated parm, a few grinds of black pepper, and a sprinkle of crunchy Jacobsen Salt Co. flakes. (I keep a Chef’s Jar in the pantry and set a tiny bowl of it out on my counter for everyday use.) As the pies came out of the oven, I cut them into big slices and slid them onto sheet trays to bring out to the stoop.

Some pie inspo for ya:

Pie #1

Tomato sauce + mozzarella + sautéed mushrooms + thinly shaved garlic cloves + big chunks of torn jarred artichokes

Pie #2

Tomato sauce + grated parm; after pie is cooked, top with mature arugula + mixed soft herbs (e.g. fennel fronds, dill, basil, parsley, mint) tossed with lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper
