A timeless classic loved by almost everyone, and there are veggie and vegan alternatives! Contrary to popular belief, pepperoni wasn't invented in Italy! It was actually created by Italian immigrants in NewYork City, it is Americas most popular pizza! Peperoni is the Italian word for bell pepper - that's definitely one to keep in mind if you're travelling to Italy.
There are many variations of the pepperoni pizza however this is the way we do it, feel free to add some chilli jam or hot honey for different variations.

Place a small amount of tomato passata onto the middle of your pizza and use the back of your spoon to spread the sauce, whilst allowing an inch or so to form a crust.
Add your fresh mozzarella and some pepperoni.
Cook in your Woody Oven for 60-90 seconds until base is cooked and crust has formed, risen and darkened.
