Ingredients
  

  • 11 oz tube pre-made pizza crust
  • 2 tsp all-purpose flour optional
  • 2/3 cup of your favorite pizza sauce
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 1/2 cup mini pepperoni slices
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp italian seasoning for topping

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Measure out enough parchment paper to line a standard baking sheet.
  • Open and unroll the pre-made pizza crust. Lightly flatten the dough using the parchment paper, a rolling pin, and a dusting of flour if the dough is too sticky.
  • Using a pizza cutter, evenly slice long ways down the center of the pizza dough. Then slice each half into 3 pieces. This will give you 6 pieces of pizza dough.
  • Spread 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons of the pizza sauce off center of the dough. It may help to picture the dough as 2 back-to-back triangles. You are putting the sauce over 1 of the triangles. The other triangle will be folded over to make the top.
    TIP: Be sure to not spread too close to the edges, or the sauce will leak out and cause a problem sealing the edges.
  • Sprinkle 2 to 2 1/2 tablespoons of mozzarella cheese over the sauce.
  • Lay the mini pepperoni over the top of the cheese.
  • Carefully fold the tops of the pizzas. Using a fork, press the edges closed.
  • Using a pastry brush, lightly baste the olive oil over the tops of the pizzas.
  • Lightly sprinkle the italian seasoning over the tops of the pizzas.
  • Bake for 10 to 13 minutes, until the top is golden brown.
