Italian Pepperoni Pizza Recipe

Our Italian Pepperoni Pizza recipe is an Italian-American favorite: chewy pizzeria crust, mild and creamy cheeses and our signature Italian-Style Pizza Sauce topped off with a generous handful of zesty pepperoni.

INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

  1. Combine flour mix and yeast packet in a large mixing bowl with 1 1/4 cups lukewarm water. Stir with a fork until dough begins to form.
  2. Knead by hand for 3 minutes, or until dough is soft and smooth. Transfer to a clean, lightly oiled bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Allow the dough to rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes. (After this step, you can refrigerate for use within 1-3 days.)
  3. Preheat oven to 450˚F. Divide dough into 2 equal pieces. Form pizza by hand on a lightly oiled baking pan or pizza stone.
  4. Divide sauce and toppings between each crust. First, spread a thin layer of pizza sauce. Top with cheeses and pepperoni.
  5. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until crust is golden and toppings are browned. Serve topped with fresh basil.
