1 ½cupgrated cheese(parmesan and pecorino mixed in whatever combination you like, start with ½ and ½)
1TBfreshly ground black pepper
1TBolive oil(for finishing)
At least 20 minutes in advance, preheat the oven to 500 degrees and put a baking sheet or pizza steel in the oven to heat up while you prepare the pizza.
Split your dough in half and shape each half into a round shape roughly 8-9” diameter. Use a lightly floured surface and rolling pin if needed.
Just before putting the dough into the oven, sprinkle the crushed ice over the top of the pizza.
While the pizza cooks, grate your parmesan and pecorino into a small bowl and toss it with the black pepper.
Bake for 8-10 minutes until it is browned on edges. Take out of the oven and immediately sprinkle each pizza with ¾ cup of the cheese and pepper mixture. Drizzle olive oil the top and optionally finish with a sprinkle of kosher salt.
If you can't find pecorino cheese at your local grocery, you can use all parmesan. It's always best to freshly grate your cheese. Pre-grated cheese typically has anti-caking agents, and can impede proper melting.
