Ingredients

Bread

  • 1 cup warm water, 110°F-115°F
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • cup olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • cups all-purpose flour

Toppings

  • cups mozzarella cheese, divided
  • ½ cup pizza sauce
  • ¼ cup pepperoni slices

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, combine yeast, water, and sugar. Stir and let it rest for 5 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl, combine olive oil, garlic, salt, and Italian seasoning.

  3. Pour half the oil mixture into the yeast mixture. Set the remaining oil mixture aside.
  4. Add flour to the oil and yeast mixture and stir to combine.
  5. Add dough to a greased bowl and cover with a tea towel. Let it rest for 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in size.
  6. When ready, preheat the oven to 450°F.

  7. Pour the reserved oil mixture into the bottom of a 9x11-inch baking dish. Use a pastry brush to coat the dish.
  8. Add the risen dough to the baking dish and work the dough to the edges. Use your fingers to create dimples in the dough.
  9. Bake the bread for 12 minutes. Remove from the oven to add toppings.

  10. Top the baked bread with the pizza sauce, 1 cup of mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, and the remaining half cup of cheese.

  11. Bake for an additional 13-15 minutes, or until the cheese is hot and bubbly and golden brown. Serve hot.
