Pizza al salami

A really good pizza requires a good base, home-made tomato sauce and of course good cheese. To get a crispy, golden pizza, the oven must be really, really hot, around 250°C. A good tip is to use a pizza stone (try looking in good kitchen equipment shops). The stone goes into the oven and the pizza is laid directly on top of the stone.
