Pepperoni, Red Onion, and Green Pepper Pizza with Fresh Mozzarella

Ingredients

PIZZA DOUGH

  • 1 1/2 oz package active dry yeast
  • 1 1/2 tsp white sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 3 3/4 bread flour
  • 3 tbsp olive oil

PIZZA SAUCE

  • 1 6 oz can tomato paste
  • 1 15 oz can tomato sauce
  • 1-2 tbsp oregano
  • 2 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic salt
  • 1/4 tsp fresh cracked pepper
  • 1 tsp granulated white sugar

TOPPINGS

  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups green bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup red onion
  • 5 oz fresh mozzarella, sliced
  • 2 oz (about 32 slices) pepperoni
  • 1 cup pizza sauce

Instructions

Preheat oven to 450F.  Then in a medium bowl, dissolve the yeast and sugar in the warm water.  Let it stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
While waiting for the mixture to become creamy, thinly slice the red onion and green bell pepper about ¼” thickness.
Stir in flour, salt, and olive oil.  Mix until smooth, let rest for 5 minutes.
While your dough rests, mix tomato paste and sauce until there are no lumps.  Then mix in remaining ingredients, mixing well.
Place the dough onto a lightly floured surface.  Roll into a 16 inch round and transfer to Air Perfect pizza pan.
Spread pizza sauce evenly around the dough.  Place the mozzarella evenly around the pizza, and then evenly distribute your veggies and pepperoni.
Bake in oven for 15-20, until golden brown.  Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
