Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 6-8
  • 1 recipe pizza dough*
  • 12 slices pepperoni
  • ½ cup chopped sweet or hot Italian sausage
  • ¼ cup pizza sauce**
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella
  • ½ cup shredded asiago
  • ¼ cup grated Romano or Parmesan cheese
  • Torn fresh basil leaves (optional)
  1. *Ready-made pizza dough may be substituted (the stuff in the tube or what is often sold in supermarket bakeries)
  2. **Regular (not chunky) pasta sauce may be used but stir in an additional ½ tsp of oregano
  3. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. You can use either a round pizza pan or a small baking sheet (one with sides). I usually use the rectangular baking sheet and line it with parchment.
  4. Roll or shape pizza dough into a 12-inch circle or 9 x 13 (approximate) rectangle. Place in pan and roll outside edges inward about ½ inch to form a rim.
  5. Spread pizza sauce over bottom of crust up to the rim. Evenly distribute pepperoni and chopped sausage.
  6. Top with cheeses and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted and bubbly.
  7. Serves 6-8 depending on how you cut and the size of the pan.
