Sheet Pan Pizza

got the original idea from sam the cooking guy. it’s super tasty no matter what toppings you add to it… a couple lessons learned from it though:

  1. if buying a 1 pound dough ball from the store, definitely take it out of the fridge to get to room temp — it’ll help the process of stretching it out
  2. actually, if you’re using a large sheet pan, definitely get 2 pounds of dough to properly stretch it to the edges. made that mistake and had to downgrade to the smaller sheet pan

Ingredients

  • 1-2 pound pizza dough ball
  • marinara sauce (enough to cover your dough)
  • 2 cloves of fresh garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tbsp italian seasoning
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • pepperoni slices
  • grated parmesan cheese
  • optional: mushroom, sausage, whatevs…

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 500°F
  2. Mix marinara, minced garlic, olive oil, salt, and red pepper flakes together in a bowl
  3. Lightly dust your counter with flour and stretch out the dough
  4. Lightly oil a 13×18 sheet pan and finish stretching dough, pressing it into the edges
  5. Spoon the marinara mix onto the dough, top with cheese and the rest of your toppings
  6. Sprinkle Italian seasoning on top of everything
  7. Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden brown
  8. While baking, simmer the remaining sauce (this will be used for dipping!)
  9. Boomski.
