Recipe by: Tony Gemignani

In Italy, the Pizza Americana is a pizza that has sliced hot dogs and French fries on it, from Milan to Bari, Italy. It’s a pizza that kids eat growing up and it’s also for tourists. Here is a take on this pizza. This pizza is incredible and it’s the ultimate Pizza Americana. The combination of waffle style fries, Calabrese honey sausage, roasted red peppers, green onion, smoked provolone, horseradish aioli and mozzarella is absolutely delicious.


  • 50/50 Semolina/flour blend for dusting
  • 32 oz / 907g dough (high hydrated dough recommend)
  • 20 oz / 567g shredded whole milk mozzarella
  • 18 - 20 waffle style fries (fried then seasoned with salt & pepper)
  • 1 Calabrese or spicy link sausage, precooked and thinly sliced
  • Honey drizzle
  • 2 oz / 6g sliced roasted red peppers
  • 0.5 oz / 14g sliced green onions
  • 2 oz / 6g shaved or sliced smoked provolone
  • Horseradish aioli drizzle
  • Extra virgin olive oil

Horseradish Aioli

  • 1/2 cup / 65g ketchup
  • 3/4 cup / 97.5g mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon / 14.175g horseradish
  • Blend together and place into a squeeze bottle
  • 2-3 ft Romana board recommended

Prep Time: 15min | Cook Time: 15min

  1. Dust your dough in the semolina/flour mix. Shape your dough long and narrow to approximately two feet long. Place your dough on your board. Using your fingers tips generously dimple your dough. Add olive oil to the crevices of the dimpled dough.
  2. Par-bake your dough in a 500-525°F gas or electric oven for three to four minutes.
  3. Take your dough out and top your pizza with mozzarella, sliced sausage, and roasted red peppers. Place your pizza back into the oven and cook until golden brown.
  4. A few minutes before your pizza is finished baking, fry your waffle-style fries. Toss in salt and pepper and set aside.
  5. Cut your pizza into desired squares. Top with green onions, fried waffle style fries, smoked provolone, honey, and aioli drizzle. Serve & enjoy!
