American Style Pepperoni Pizza
1 recipe Pizza Dough
½ cup Pizza Sauce
¼ teaspoon dried Oregano
2 cups grated Mozzarella Cheese
2 cups grated Parmesan Cheese
4 ounces sliced Pepperoni
Make the Pizza Dough. Make the Pizza Sauce.
Makes 2 14” Pizzas
Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. If you are using a pizza stone, place it on a lower shelf and preheat it with the oven. If you are using pizza pans, arrange the racks in the lower half of the oven.
Divide the pizza dough in half. Pat or roll the dough into a 14" round. Place the round on a wooden pizza peel or pizza pan generously dusted with flour or cornmeal. Spread half the Pizza Sauce evenly over the dough round. Distribute half the grated Mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses over the sauce. Top with half the sliced pepperoni.
If you are using a pizza stone, slide the pizza directly onto the preheated stone. Alternately, place the prepared pizzas on the rack. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until brown, crisp, and bubbling. Remove the pizza from the oven, cut into wedges and serve hot.
To make a second pizza, repeat the steps with the remaining ingredients.
