  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 pound Italian sausage, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup sliced pepperoni

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, yeast, sugar, and salt.

  9. Roll out the remaining dough and place it on top, sealing the edges to enclose the filling.
