My famous pizza. Always requested at family gatherings and a basic in our family for many years. Not a lot of work so great for family gatherings and weekends. Even for watching the game.

  • 1 batch Easy Everyday Pizza Dough from previous post


  • 6 oz tomato paste
  • 6 oz water
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon oregano


  • 1 lb Italian sausage browned and drained
  • 1 green pepper chopped
  • 1/2 onion medium yellow or white
  • 3-4 oz pepperoni
  • 12-16 oz mozzarella


  • Make one recipe of Easy Everyday Pizza Dough from the previous post.
  • Mix sauce. One 6 oz can of tomato paste and 6 oz water. 1 tsp salt, 1/2 t pepper, 1 clove garlic and 1 t oregano.
  • Prep toppings. I do 1 lb Italian sausage, one green pepper chopped, 1/2 medium yellow onion, and 3-4 oz of pepperoni. Vary to your taste. And lastly a lot of mozzarella 12-16 oz. I also like to "top" with some more pepperoni.
  • Preheat oven to 425 convection. Spread dough. Let set for about 10 minutes if you want a very thick crust.
  • Top with topping of your choice.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes. Be sure to lift a corner of the pizza to check for done.
