Pepperoni & Mushroom Pizza

One huge benefit of my new method of bread making, is having dough on hand to make pizza in a flash.

Now I had planned to make pizza when I went grocery shopping this weekend, but I could not find the pepperoni for the life of me when I started making the pizza. Oh well, life goes on. It will be a mushroom and onion pizza! Doesn’t quite have the same ring…

Slice the onion…

Do you like our knife?

The regular knives are getting sharpened. We’re improvising here!

Chop up jalapenos and mushrooms (with a butter knife)…

Shred some cheese…

Mix up some sauce. I got the basic recipe from $5 Dinner Mom (I just leave out the oil). It’s super easy and uses ingredients most people have on hand.

Quick Pizza Sauce

  • 8 oz. tomato sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder

Spread the sauce on the crust…

Layer on the cheese and mushroom…


Onions and jalapenos (if you like it spicy)…

And…SURPRISE…I found the pepperoni! So slap that on top!

My pizzas tend to get a little thick. What I thought was going to be a skimpy pizza turned out quite substantial.

Bake that sucker at 375 for about 30 minutes or until crust is cooked through and browned.

Enjoy the spicy side with added crushed red pepper:

or the normal side:

both with a side of orange. 🙂

    Ok. Next time I make pizza, I will just try putting the pepperoni on top the cheese like you did. Maybe that’s what makes the difference?
