Preheat your oven to the temperature specified on your pizza dough packaging (usually around 450°F or 230°C).


On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pizza dough into a 12-inch circle. Transfer the dough to a pizza stone, baking sheet, or pizza pan.


Brush the surface of the dough with olive oil, ensuring an even coating.


Spread the pizza sauce over the dough, leaving a small border around the edges for the crust.


Sprinkle half of the shredded mozzarella cheese over the sauce.


Arrange the pepperoni slices evenly over the cheese.


Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella cheese over the pepperoni.


Combine dried oregano, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper in a small bowl. Sprinkle this seasoning mixture over the cheese.


Place the pizza in the preheated oven and bake according to the dough package instructions or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly.


Once cooked, carefully remove the pizza from the oven and let it cool for a minute before slicing.


Slice the pizza into 8 wedges and serve hot. If desired, sprinkle red pepper flakes over the slices for an extra kick.

Tips for this recipe

For a crispier crust, preheat your baking sheet or pizza stone in the oven before placing the pizza on it. This will help achieve that delightful crunch in every bite.
