BT Montreal | posted Tuesday, Jan 8th, 2019


  • 1 Pizza dough (850g)
  • 1 sliced tomato seasoned with 1 tbsp. olive oil, salt, oregano
  • ½ cup sliced onion
  • ½ cup sliced red pepper
  • 8 slices of smoked ham (or your favorite meat) *optional
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tbsp. sesame seeds or poppy seeds
  • 1 tsp. olive oil



  1. Roll out your dough in a rectangular shape.
  2. Layer the center of your pizza, in that order, with ingredients above, or your own choices.
  3. Make 1-inch thick incisions on each side of the dough to make strands of dough. Pizza dough will look like a fringe on each side.
  4. Begin from the top and make criss-cross design with both sides of dough till you make a braid-like look.
  5. Brush a little olive oil on top.
  6. Sprinkle with sesame seeds or poppy seeds or both. *optional
  7. Meats are optional as well, can make vegetarian or with your own favorite pizza toppings.
