pizza... 1 hour

the goods:

olive oil, for pan
1 pound store bought pizza dough, thawed if frozen
jarred tomato sauce
6 cups shredded mozzarella (1.5 lbs.)
pepperoni, mushrooms, or any other desired toppings (onion, bell pepper, tomato, etc.)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brush bottom and sides of a rimmed baking sheet with olive oil. Stretch dough out to fit pan and press to fit corners and 1-inch up sides to form a rim.

Spread desired amount of tomato sauce over dough.

Spread a layer of cheese over entire pizza.

Followed by any desired toppings.

I only put mushrooms on half to fit the likes and dislikes of my family.

Spread pizza with a final layer of cheese to help hold everything together. Season with salt and pepper.

Bake for 30 to 40 minutes until cheese and crusts are golden.

Let rest in pan for 10 minutes. Slice with a pizza cutter and serve using a spatula.

Enjoy with a salad to keep things fresh!
