Easy Homemade Pizza

Easy Homemade Pizza


  • 1 package Whole Foods All-Natural pizza dough
  • Olive oil
  • Pizza sauce (I like Rao’s)
  • Pepperoni (I like slicing Beyond Sausage really thin)*
  • 1 cup shallots, sliced thin
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced thin
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced thin
  • Mozzarella (I love Miyoko’s Mozzarella)
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Fresh basil
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste


Bring the dough to room temperature. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Apply a very thin layer of olive oil between the baking sheet and the parchment paper, to avoid the paper from slipping. Rub a little bit of olive oil between your hands and shape the pizza dough as to cover the baking sheet.

Preheat the oven to 350°. Take the pizza out of the bag and brush a thin layer of olive oil on top. Top with some pizza sauce. You can now top with the rest of your ingredients. Transfer to the oven and bake for 30-40 minutes. Because heat varies depending on the oven, start checking after 30 minutes. Take out of the oven, top with more olive oil or some leftover sauce, if desired, and some fresh basil. Bon appétit!


*Alternatively, rinse and drain a can of chickpeas. Toss them with some olive oil, some red pepper flakes, and some sea salt, and distribute them on the crust.
