We're jazzing up a classic pizza favorite by adding olives and thinly sliced sweet onion to the pepperoni.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°.

Step 2

Place dough in a bowl coated with cooking spray; let dough stand, covered, for 15 minutes.

Step 3

Sprinkle a baking sheet with cornmeal; roll dough into a 12-inch circle on prepared baking sheet. Spread sauce evenly over dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Top with onion, pepperoni, and olives; sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 450° on bottom oven rack for 17 minutes or until crust is golden.

Chef's Notes

Have made this several times over the years.  I've learned the key is the sauce.  Marinara can be bland so either use a favorite purchased tomato sauce or homemade sauce.  So easy and the family loves it.  Portion size is impossible though.  I usually make 2 pizzas for 3 hungry adults and then we get some left overs too.

I would recommend baking the pizza for 12 minutes, pulling it out to put the cheese on and then putting it back in for the last 5 minutes.

Made this last night and everyone loved it! They were still mentioning the pizza today. I used a pre-made crust but followed the recipe exactly otherwise. Served alongside CL's Linguine with Easy Meat Sauce. Very simple to prepare; I will definitely make this again.

This was a superfast recipe! I used the Boboli Thin Crust to make it even faster-no rolling out of the dough. I used 4oz of cheese vs 3oz. Great combo of ingredients.

Made this recipe last night and thought that it was delicious. I am a huge olive fan so I added some additional olives. If you are using the pre-shredded cheese I would recommend baking the pizza for 12 minutes, pulling it out to put the cheese on and then putting it back in for the last 5 minutes. The shredded cheese is so thin it melts right away and 17 minutes was it little long for it. This was a nice fast recipe and tasted delicious.
