Simple Pepperoni Pizza

Sunday is meant to be simple. Resting, reading the newspapers and hanging out with the family. My approach to the kitchen on Sunday is to float in and out. If I feel like it, I might make soup or bread or both (or neither). I think that the most important part of Sunday is to relax.

As promised, here is a simple pizza to make with your skins from yesterday.

Ingredients

  • 1 Pizza Skin (from yesterday)
  • 1/2 Cup Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1/4 Cup Tomato Sauce
  • Handful of Sliced Pepperoni
  • Olive Oil
  • Corn Meal
  • Red Pepper Flakes

Tools

  • Pizza Peel (Big, wooden paddle)
  • Pizza Cutter or Chef’s Knife
  • Pizza Stone or Pizza Pan
  1. If you have a pizza stone, place it in the oven and pre heat to 450.
  2. Dust the peel with corn meal and lay the skin out.
  3. Drizzle skin with a light layer of olive oil (optional).
  4. Evenly spread the sauce. I try to buy sauce in a jar with a lid. Our kids will make pizza throughout the week and will always use it. You can make sauce you like or just read the ingredients list and buy one without any junk in it.
  5. Arrange the pepperoni evenly in a single layer.
  6. Cover with a thin layer of cheese.
  7. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes.
  8. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the crust is golden brown.
  9. Remove from the oven with the peel or a large spatula.
  10. Let cool for about 5 minutes before cutting and serving.

The pepperoni does go under the cheese. Sounds weird but don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.
