Pepperoni Pizza

D loves Pizzas. It�s been more than a month since I made them. This time I decided to surprise him. I started the preparation of dough in the morning itself, so that it gets enough time to rise. Keeping my fingers crossed, I watched the development of the dough every 30 minutes. I was so relieved to


  • 500 gms Pepperoni
  • Pizza sauce * ( see recipe below)
  • as required Mozzarella cheese Grated

Pizza Dough:

  • 1 - 1/2 teaspoons Active dry yeast
  • 1 cup water Lukewarm
  • 2 cups Flour
  • 2 tablespoons Olive oil (I used refined oil)
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 teaspoons Sugar


  • In a bowl take yeast and sugar.
  • Pour the lukewarm water and let it stand for about 10 minutes or more till it becomes frothy.
  • In another bowl, take the flour and mix with salt.
  • Add the yeast mixture and mix till well blended.
  • Add the oil and mix well till you get a soft ball of dough.
  • Cover the bowl with a plastic wrap and keep in a warm place for the dough to rise, until the volume is doubled.
  • Once it has doubled, turn the dough onto a well floured surface, pat down and shape into pizza crust.
  • Transfer to a Pizza pan or baking sheet.
  • Spread pizza sauce.
  • Arrange pepperoni on top of the sauce.
  • Sprinkle the grated cheese on top and bake on preheated oven at 230C for 10-15 minutes or till the crust is brown and cheese changes colour.


Note: This Pizza dough was sufficient to make a 11" Pizza.
