  1. 1

    Prep pizza crust

    • You can bake only 1 pizza at a time. If you are preparing 2, assemble both (assemble second pizza on a cutting board); then bake one after the other, letting metal tray and Brava cool for 10 minutes in between. If you are baking only 1 pizza, oil just 1 crust and prepare half of the ingredients.
    • Stretch 1 portion of dough into a 10-inch round on Brava metal tray. Using pastry brush or your hands, evenly spread 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil over entire crust.
    • Season crust with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  2. 2

    Assemble pizza

    • Evenly spread half of ricotta on crust.
    • Evenly distribute half of bacon, chorizo, sausage and caramelized onions on crust.

  3. 3

    Bake pizza

    • Slide metal tray into bottom shelf.
    • Select “Meat Lover’s Pizza” on your Brava touchscreen and follow instructions.

  4. 4


    • When your food is done, transfer pizza to cutting board. If you want to bake second pizza, let metal tray and Brava cool for about 10 minutes before proceeding.
    • Sprinkle baked pizza with half of Parmigiano-Reggiano and drizzle with 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil.
    • Sprinkle pizza with half of chili flakes, if desired.
    • Cut pizza into slices and serve.
