This Homemade Pepperoni Pizza has everything you want—a great crust, gooey cheese, and tons of pepperoni. The secret to great pepperoni flavor? Hide extra under the cheese! Who needs delivery?
INGREDIENTS:
  • 16 ounces pizza dough, store-bought or homemade
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 18 to 20 slices pepperoni
  • 12 ounces mozzarella cheese, grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon fresh oregano, optional
PREPARATION:
  • Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface. If it's hard to roll, let it rest for 5 minutes so it can come to room temperature. For a large pizza, roll my dough into about a 14-inch diameter circle.
  • Add sauce in a light layer all over the pizza, leaving about 1/4-inch crust around the edges. Add the pepperoni and sprinkle it over the sauce. Top the pizza with grated cheese and the rest of the pepperoni. Season with black pepper.
  • Cook for 6 minutes, then rotate the pizza halfway so it cooks evenly. Cook for another 6-8 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and charred in spots.
  • Use pizza peel to slide pizza out onto a cutting board. Let the pizza rest for a minute and slice into pieces. Season with fresh oregano (optional). Serve while warm with a side salad.
