You can make these in advance and freeze them. When ever you would like some, just take them from the freezer, heat in a oven, serve with the sauce and your all set. Kids love these as well as adults!

This recipe is delicious, especially the crust! I used only cheese and pepperoni for the inside. Made the sauce, but had to guess that it needed 1 can of diced tomatoes, since this wasn't in the ingredient list. I used one can of Del Monte diced tomatoes with oregano, basil and garlic and it was really good. Thanks for posting; made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup.

Directions

  1. For the Dough: dissolve the yeast in the warm water, it should be 105°F to max 115°F until it bubbles a little about 5 minutes. (any higher it will kill the yeast.) In a large bowl, stir in the sugar,oil,salt and 1 cup flour. Add enough flour so it is easy to handle or (you can put it in a food processor). Remove dough onto a floured surface and knead for 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Cover the dough, put in a warm place and let it rise for 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. For the Sauce: Add olive oil to medium heat in a sauce pan. Add garlic and crushed red pepper to the heated oil; when pepper snaps and garlic sizzles, stir in crushed tomatoes. Season with salt, pepper and Italian seasonings. Simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in parsley.
  3. Roll the dough into 4 10 inch circles. Place sauce and topping mix over half of the dough. Add 1/2 cup cheese. Fold over and crimp the edges shut.Brush the edges with melted butter or beaten egg wash. Bake at 350°F for 25 - 30 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with additional sauce on the side or on top.
