Pepperoni, Mushroom, and Sausage Pizza

1 store-bought pizza dough
Marinara sauce
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 hot Italian sausage, crumbled and cooked
1 cup sliced mushrooms
20 slices of pepperoni
1 cup fresh mini mozzarella balls
1 cup finely grated parmesan
2 tablespoons fresh basil, julienned
Red pepper flakes, for serving

  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Place a baking sheet in the oven to warm while you assemble the pizza.
  2. Cut the dough in half. On a lightly floured piece of parchment paper, roll out each half of dough to the thinnest circle as possible. Ideally, you will have two 10 to 12-inch pies.
  3. Cover each dough with marinara sauce, spreading evenly and leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edge of the pie.
  4. Sprinkle evenly with the shredded mozzarella. Distribute the crumbled sausage, sliced mushrooms, and pepperoni liberally and evenly on the pizzas. Dot with the fresh mozzarella balls and sprinkle with parmesan.
  5. Transfer to the prepared warmed baking sheet and cook for 12 to 15 minutes until the pizza is crisp and the cheese is melted.
  6. Top with the fresh basil and red pepper flakes and serve immediately.

Serves 2.
