Keep working it into a flat roundish base, using your fingers to flatten it as much as possible. Step 14 If you like a very thin pizza base, use a rolling pin as necessary to flatten the base a little more Step 15 Push the slide under the pizza and silicon paper and then add the toppings, starting with enough tomato sauce to lighly cover the base. Step 16 Add the meats, anchovies, mushrooms and capers, then cover with the slices of mozzarella Step 17 Use the slide to transfer the pizza on the silicon paper directly on top of the pizza steel Step 18 Cook for 8-10 minutes Note 1/8th of the pizza dough will make a pizza for one hungry adult or 2 kids. Any left over tomato sauce can be frozen or stored in the fridge for a few days.
