Advice

Add Vegeta to the mashed tomatoes or tomato juice and no matter what the toppings, your pizza will always be good. Distribute three-quarters of the sauce over the dough and the remaining sauce over the toppings to make the pizza even juicier.

Little secret

Instead of a large pizza, you can make several small, round pizzas which you can fold over and eat like a sandwich.
