Crispy pizza crust stuffed with meats, cheeses and veggies.
Ingredients
  • Pizza dough
  • Egg wash (1 egg yolk plus water)
  • Assorted veggies
  • Sliced olives
  • Sliced mushrooms
  • Pepperonis
  • Mixture of Italian cheese - provolone, mozzarella, Parmesan
  • Italian seasoning
  • Marinara sauce
  • Olive oil
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 425.
  2. Divide the pizza dough into 4 equal balls.
  3. Roll out into 4 equal ovals on a lightly floured surface.
  4. Spoon about 1 tsp of marinara over the center of the dough. Do not get too close to the edge. Leave about an inch.
  5. Add the pepperoni and veggies.
  6. Top with a handful of shredded cheeses.
  7. Pull one side of the dough over the topping to meet the opposite edge.
  8. Use a fork to crimp the dough together.
  9. Roll the crimp one time and use the fork or fingers to pinch down again.
  10. It is important to add the extra roll over the dough edge to keep all those toppings locked up.
  11. Use a knife to cut 3 slits on the top to let steam out.
  12. Brush egg wash over crust.
  13. Drizzle olive oil and sprinkle with Italian seasoning.
  14. Bake for 20 minute until crust is golden brown.
  15. Keep an eye on them because they cook very fast. I cooked mine for 25 minutes. I should have pulled them out a few minutes earlier.
