Step 1:

 Roll out your pizza dough into a circle with a wine bottle or rolling pin.

Step 2:

 On one half of the dough, spread a thin layer of Calabrian chilli, a few dollops of ricotta, pepperoni, and sharp provolone. Remember, less is more.  

Step 3:

 Fold over and tightly crimp the edges, shaping the pizza dough into a half moon shape. Cut a few small slits to allow some air to escape. 

Step 4:

 Spread a very thin layer of tomato sauce on top of the dough. Add a pinch of pecorino, and a drizzle of olive oil.

Step 5:

 Bake your pizza low and as slow as you can (ideally around 370°C/700°F) proactively turning the pizza so it gets evenly baked.

Step 6:

 Add basil. Enjoy!
