Pizza Quattro Formaggi

pizza4cheesea

This pizza is delicious although very rich. My son and son-in-law both love this pizza but prefer to have some spicy pepperoni sprinkled on top as well which adds a bite that offsets the richness of all the cheese. Quattro formaggi of course means four cheese, and traditionally those four cheeses include mozzarella, Gorgonzola, Parmesan, and a fresh creamy cheese such as Robiola or Stracchino.

Pizza Quattro Formaggi

Quattro formaggi of course means four cheese, and traditionally those four cheeses include mozzarella, Gorgonzola, Parmesan, and a fresh creamy cheese such as Robiola or Stracchino.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Pizza Dough Balls
  • 6 Ounces Full Fat Mozzarella, Shredded
  • 3 Ounces Gorgonzola Cheese, Crumbled
  • 4 Ounces Creamy White Cheese (See Above)
  • 4 Tablespoons Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 6 Ounces Spicy Pepperoni Or Soppresata (Optional)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to the highest setting and place a pizza stone in the oven for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Making one pizza at a time, shape your pizza dough into a 12 inch circle and place it on a pizza peel lightly sprinkled with corn meal.
  3. Sprinkle half the cheese evenly over the pizza and then add half of the pepperoni if using.
  4. Slide the pizza from the peel onto the pizza stone and cook until brown and bubbly, about 8 to 9 minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven and place it on a plate and complete the second pizza in the same fashion.
  6. Serve immediately.
