  • Your favorite pizza dough (enough for two pizzas)
  • Vodka sauce:
  • 1/4 cup vodka
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon horseradish
  • 2 cups canned crushed tomato
  • 5 tablespoons half-and-half
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Toppings:
  • 3 cups shredded mozzarella
  • Pepperoncini
  • Olives
  • Sun-dried tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • Jalapeños, sliced
  • Freshly sliced tomatoes


  1. To make the sauce, bring all ingredients to a boil in a medium saucepan. Immediately reduce to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Let cool slightly.
  2. Preheat oven to 450°F. Divide the dough between 2 pizza pans (or 2 baking sheets) that have been lightly greased. Form the pizza rounds, then top with sauce. Add the cheese, then layer with toppings as desired.
  3. Bake for 15-25 minutes depending on thickness of pizza. Serve immediately.
