The Super Six™
(the following ingredient amounts are approximations of the above named trade marked pizza)
14 oz. doughball, stretched to 15”
12 oz. sauce
14 oz. fresh pinched Italian sausage
10 oz. Shredded mozzarella (First Layer 3.5 oz., second layer 6.5 oz.)
6.5 oz. thin sliced ham (2”x 2” slices)
2.25 oz. pepperoni (34-36 slices)
2.5 oz. green peppers
2.5 oz. mushrooms
Slap, stretch or press your dough out to a very thin, 15” crust. Spread your sauce, leaving about a ¼” crust line.
First, add your fresh pinched sausage. Pinch small, marble sized pieces so they cook fully. Next, add your first layer of cheese (3.5 oz.). Then add your slices of ham, and top with your pepperoni, green peppers and mushrooms. Finally add your remaining cheese and top with any seasonings you wish.
Cook for about 10-12 minutes at 525°, or until the crust is golden brown and crispy underneath, and the ingredients have baked fully.
Remove from oven, cut into squares, and share with friends for the full Chicago thin crust effect. Serve and enjoy!
