You will need:
- Pizza Dough
- Shredded Cheese
- Olives, mushrooms, sausage or any favorite toppings
Start by picking up your favorite premade dough, or make your own. Here is a simple recipe that I use, it’s pretty simple and healthy to make.
Simple Pizza Dough
- 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 2 pkgs. Dry active yeast
- 2 cups warm water
- 4 Tbsp. Olive Oil
- 1 tsp. salt
Preheat oven to 450°
Add yeast to warm water in a small bowl, allow to set for 10 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Use dough hook on mixer or knead by hand for 5 minutes until dough appears smooth. Let it rest for about 5 minutes. If you want to edge up the healthy factor, substitute some of the white flour for whole wheat.
Roll pizza dough to about 1/8” thickness into a rectangle shape. Spread a thin layer of sauce covering almost to the edges. Sprinkle with mozzarella or an Italian cheese blend. Spread a single layer of pepperoni over cheese., add any other toppings you like. Roll dough into a log, tightly. Cut off 1” to 1 ½ slices. Lay slices on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake in oven preheated to 400° oven for 15-17 minutes until tops begin to brown. Pack with a small cup of sauce for dipping.
