Pizza pastry: You may prepare your pizza pastry from the scratch w/ flour & yeast. (In this case add about 30-40 min for allowing the yeast to do its duty.) You may also rely on a pizza pastry mix to be prepared w/ adding water & some kneading. Or you may start w/ a ready-to-bake pizza pastry from the chiller cabinet of your trusted food store.
Dried Mediterranean herbs: I used herbs of Provence. There is also a mix called Italian herbs. You may also just add some dried oregano, thyme ... whatever you find in your pantry.
Parmesan: I happened to have a rest of grated parmesan from day before. It was about 35 g - so I used it all. You may also go w/ only 20 g of grated parmesan - or 40 g if you like.
Oven: I used a pizza pastry mix which doesn't require any preheating of the oven. Check what your solution needs. If working w/ homemade pizza pastry from the scratch you'll need preheating the oven.
