Ready in 1 hour

Homemade pizza smothered with melted mozzerella and sliced spicy pepperoni--you'll never order take-out again!


2 1/2 cups All-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 1/2 teaspoons Yeast
5 teaspoons olive oil
1 cup lukewarm water
3/4 cup Pizza sauce
12 ounces Mozzerella cheese; sliced or shredded
25 slices Pepperoni

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



Preheat oven to 400 F. Lightly grease round pizza pan. Put flour and salt into a large bowl, and stir just enough to combine. Stir in yeast. Make a well in the center and add olive oil and 1 cup lukewarm water. Mix until a soft dough forms. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently for 5 minutes.

Roll out dough and press into prepared baking sheet. Cover and allow rest for 10 minutes at room temperature, then bake for 5 to 7 minutes.

Remove the crust from the oven and spread pizza sauce on top, leaving a 1 in. border. Arrange the mozzarella on top and then the pepperoni, to your taste. Drizzle with olive oil and bake until golden, 15-20 minutes. You can also add a little dried oregano and black pepper on the pizza too, but no more than 5/8 teaspoons combined.

Slice pizza into 8 pieces.
