The above pizza recipe could be scaled up or down depending on the number of attendees. Larger portions of toppings could also be prepared before hand. Remember to preheat your oven at least half an hour before your guests arrive. Have a timer at the ready and you’ll find your own pizza-baking rhythm soon enough so, no worries at all.
