Pepperoni, Mushroom, and Sausage Pizza Recipe

My Favorite Pizza: Pepperoni, Mushrooms, and Sausage

Everyone has a favorite combination of pizza toppings, and mine are pepperoni, mushrooms, and sausage. On a recent Saturday night, I fought the urge to order a pie and instead decided to make my own! I picked up some dough from Whole Foods, but was a little disappointed. It was incredibly hard to roll out to a very thin crust. Still, thanks to the meaty toppings, the resulting pizza was absolutely satisfying and delicious. If using store-bought dough, homemade pizza is a great fast and easy dinner, so check out my recipe when you

Pepperoni, Mushroom, and Sausage Pizza Recipe 2010-05-19 11:45:59


  1. 1 store-bought pizza dough
  2. Marinara sauce
  3. 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  4. 1 hot Italian sausage, crumbled and cooked
  5. 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  6. 20 slices of pepperoni
  7. 1 cup fresh mini mozzarella balls
  8. 1 cup finely grated parmesan
  9. 2 tablespoons fresh basil, julienned
  10. 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.

I absolutely LOVE the pre-made pizza doughs at Trader Joes... the whole wheat and herb doughs are both delish and hearty! In the oven on a pizza stone is my favorite way, so the underside of the crust gets nice and crunchy and a little bit seasoned from the stone. The fun of pizza is cutting up any leftover veggies or meats you already have in the fridge and getting creative with your toppings. Also, so easy and impressive to dinner guests :).

Another really great way to make pizza is to grill it on the grill, especially now that it's getting nice out. It is to DIE for.

I used a regular aluminum baking sheet. Just be sure to use pot holders when handling it.

Did you use a pizza stone or aluminum pan?
