This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Food Prep and Preservation

For this badge bit, you will make a pizza. They can be "normal", paleo, vegan, gluten free. Paul's "polydough" is probably the easiest way to make pizza. Here's how Paul says to make his polydough pizza:

paul wheaton wrote: Just tear off a piece of dough, shape it, smear tomato sauce on it.  Throw on pizza toppings and cheese, then bake at 450 for about eight minutes.



Making the pizza in the rocket oven would count for both this BB and the parallel one in Rocket Ovens. Here's a pizza made in Julia's rocket oven



Here's my favorite SCD/GAPS/Paleo pizza dough recipe: Cheese Bread Pizza Dough. It's also, of course, gluten free!

My husband loves his bacon crust meatza/pizza, which is made with a woven bacon crust.

Here's some great permies threads with pizza recipes:

  • New York style pizza sauce and crust recipe
  • Cauliflower Pizza Crust
  • How to Make Gluten Free Pizza Crust
  • Grain free, dairy free, soy free pizza...really!


  • Here's some pictures from those threads:




    Note: with most gluten crusts, like Paul's Polydough, the crust does not need to be prebaked. With most gluten-free crusts (including meatza), the crust needs to be baked first and then sauce and toppings applied, and then baked again.

    Your toppings and sauce can be to your own liking. For example: a vegan pesto pizza, an alfredo chicken pizza, a classic margarita pizza, a pizza with ALL the topings. Deep dish, calazone,  and thin crusts all count, too.


    To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
      - one pizza
      - you make the pizza from scratch, including the crust
      - not burnt
      - dough is cooked

    To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must:
      - Link to/post the recipe you used (especially the part about the crust)
      - pic of the crust being made
      - pic of the pizza getting it's toppings put on
      - pic of the completed pizza and a slice of pizza
              o showing that the pizza is not burnt and it is cooked all the way through

    Here's my pizza.

    2 cups sourdough starter, 2 cups flour, 2 TBL olive oil. Let dough stand covered for around 24 hours.

    Toppings
      Sauce- 1 can organic tomato paste, 4 tsp oregano, 1 tsp basil, 1 tsp marjoram, 1 tsp powdered garlic, add water to desired thickness.
      Olives, homemade Italian pork sausage, chopped onion, homemade mozzarella goat cheese, cheddar cheese, mushrooms.

    Flatten pizza dough between two sheets of parchement paper, take top paper off and cook crust at 425 deg for 15 min. Add all toppings and cook on broil for additional 5 minutes.

    Pizza made with homemade dough, from scratch, not in the bread machine:)

    Pizza dough: flour, salt, yeast, whey (because I had some leftover from cheese making, otherwise I use water), some oilive oil. Let rise and punch down twice.

    Toppings: homemade pizza sauce from home canned tomato sauce with herbs and garlic, homemade mozzarella cheese, slces of green pepper, mushrooms, grated cheddar cheese, copa and prosciuto. Added basil and feta after taken out of the oven.

    Baked on baking stone in a very hot oven.

    Edited to correct spelling mistakes.

    It was pizza night at our house today!

    I made this recipe: https://comfybelly.com/2010/08/cheese-bread-and-pie-crust/ and topped it with organic tomato sauce and cheese we grated.

    Hey there!

    I'm here at the PEP event and am finally getting to posting all of the bb's I've been working on now that we are coming to an end. I used the polydough recipe https://permies.com/t/1371/kitchen/Poly-Dough-pizza-bread-fry and made enough pizza for the community bb as well and will post there as well.

    I started some polydough! My spin on Paul's polydough is a double batch of his recipe with some instructions mixed in from Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon: 8 cups warm water, 8 tablespoons APC vinegar, 2 tablespoons sea salt, 1 cup coconut oil, and enough of whatever gluten-free flours are immediately on-hand to get a doughy consistency (e.g. oat flour, coconut flour, quinoa flour).

    I learned that the differenece between batter and dough is that batter moves more like and liquid and sticks to the sides of pans, whereas, dough sticks to itself more. Then, I will let the dough sit for at least 24 hours (maybe longer).

    This is mixing the ingredients:



    This is the batter consistency. I realized I needed to add more flours to get this batter to become dough.



    And now, it's dough!



    I added some more oat flour and quiona flour along with water and APC vinegar after 24 hours. Now, I am going to wait 48 hours of fermenting before I use the dough.





    I put the toppings on the vegan and gluten-free pizza I'm making with the polydough. I put olive oil, balsamic vinegar, sea salt, tomatoes, onions, and garlic on it.

    This is the crust being made.



    These are the toppings being put on the pizza.



    Being at 3000 feet above sea level, I am baking the pizza at 375 Fahrenheit for 50 minutes. This is the finished pizza and it being put in the oven.





    This is the finished pizza out of the oven, and it being sliced. Kind of like the bread that I tried making, the pizza crust ended up being dense and crumbly. It came out more of like shortbread or cornbread with pizza toppings on it.

    I made a personal pizza today!  I used Paul's Poly Dough recipe but scaled it down to a 1/8th recipe.  It was the perfect amount.  For toppings I used some homemade tomato sauce, dried oregano, ground venison, bell peppers, garlic and mozzarella cheese.

    Perry the Purple PEP Platypus is here to make a perfectly porky pizza!

    Dough is ... Faccia!

    1 3/4 cups warm water
    1 tbsp of yeast
    1/2 tsp of sugar
    2 tsp salt
    1/4 oil
    4 cups of flour



    - Used local heirloom flour
    - Ham from a locally raised pig (left overs form Easter dinner)
    - Pineapple - 1 cup
    - Roasted garlic (I grew myself) - 1 Bulb
    - Onion - 1 chopped
    -  A Guacamole Spice mix
    - 1/2 can of diced tomatoes
    - 1 can of tomato paste
    - 1 cup shredded Gouda
    - 1 cup shredded Asiago


    Prepping with Perry!




    Dough rising over an hour. Perry for scale!



    Making the sauce from scratch.



    We used a pizza stone in an oven. I'm getting the dough prepped. I cooked it for 5 minutes before putting on the toppings.



    Toppings on, pizza into the oven at 425F for another 20 minutes.


    Perry is pleased with the first pizza!



    The only evidence that I actually made 2 pizzas because we ate the other too fast!
    Staff note (Mike Haasl) :

    I'd like to certify this but there's pineapple on it which is an abomination.

    Ok, fine, it's certified. I guess...

    My son and I made pizzas this week. It's on our regular-ish food rotation. This time for the crust, I made Paul's Polydough ( https://permies.com/t/1371/kitchen/Poly-Dough-pizza-bread-fry ).
