1/2
cup chopped onion (1 medium), if desired
8
slices (3/4 to 1 oz each) mozzarella cheese
2
tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Lightly spray 12-inch pizza pan with cooking spray. In 10-inch skillet, cook sausage over medium heat, stirring frequently, until no longer pink; drain well on paper towels.
  • 2 Unroll 1 can of dough on pizza pan. Starting at center, press out dough to edge of pan. Layer sausage and pepperoni on dough. With back of spoon, carefully spread 1/2 cup of the pizza sauce evenly over pepperoni. Top with mushrooms, bell pepper, onion and slices of mozzarella cheese.

  • 4 Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until crust is deep golden brown. Meanwhile, heat remaining pizza sauce. Cut pizza into wedges; serve topped with warm pizza sauce.

Expert Tips

For a crisper crust, sprinkle about 1 tablespoon cornmeal on pizza pan before pressing out the dough. A pizza stone will also do the trick.

For ease in shaping the top pizza crust, draw a 12-inch circle on a sheet of waxed paper. Press out the dough to fill the circle.
