Shelly Anne: I've not yet made this recipe, but have made my own pizza sauce I will post, (adding garlic powder, basil, oregano to tomato sauce, if this is your choice). For toppings, I like adding raw vegies, turkey pep. as you might incld with this one. What is quick is using pita bread if not choosing gluten-free dough.

How to Make Pepperoni Pizza

Step-by-Step

  1. In a small bowl, stir together the pizza sauce, olive oil, salt, water (Nardone didn't offer the tomato sauce recipe) but I will post a recipe for sauce.
  2. Position rack in the bottom of the oven and preheat oven to 450 degrees. (If you have a baking stone, place it on the oven rack and preheat for 30 minutes.)
    Working with one pizza at a time, brush dough w/ olive oil, sprinkle w/ red pepper flakes, and spoon on about 3 to 4 tbsp sauce mixture, leaving a 1/2 inch border of plain crust.
  3. Top pizza with half of the cheese, if using.
    Bake until the crust is golden and the pepperoni is crisp, about 8 minutes; less if crust was parbaked (or pita bread) Repeat with remaining dough and toppings of choice.
