each salt and pepper

green pepper, thinly sliced

1 lb (500 g)

prepared raw pizza dough

1 cup (250 mL)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C). Heat the oil in a large, nonstick skillet set over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms, onion, salt and pepper. Cook for 7 minutes or until browned. Add the green pepper; cook for 5 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat and stir in 1 cup (250 mL) pasta sauce.
  1. Stretch the pizza dough to line the bottom of a 9-inch (23 cm) spring-form cake pan and overhang the sides slightly. Fill with the vegetable mixture, top with shredded cheese and pepperoni. Crimp the dough around the inside of the pan to create a crust. Bake for 25 minutes or until bubbling around the edges and the crust is golden. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving with remaining sauce for dipping.
Tip: Mix up the toppings and try ham with chopped pineapple and red pepper or cooked chicken with spinach and artichoke hearts.
