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.

    Let cool 10 min and then cut and eat.

    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.

    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.
