Millennium Falcon Pizza

READY IN: 50mins


  • pizza dough
  • 12
    cup pizza sauce
  • 2 12
    cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 10
    pepperoni slices
  • sriracha hot sauce
  • pesto sauce (in squeeze bottle or piping bag)


  • Position a rack in the bottom of an oven.  Place a pizza stone or inverted baking sheet on the rack and preheat to 500 degrees F.
  • Lightly flour a surface and stretch and roll pizza dough into an oval about 13" wide and 17" tall.  Transfer to a large piece of parchment paper.
  • Place a 12” pizza pan on top of dough as close to the bottom as possible. Trim away dough, leaving the top fourth section intact.
  • In the top fourth section, shape the two points of the ship, trimming away with a paring knife.
  • Remove the pizza pan.  Trim about an inch of dough between the two points to further accentuate the shape.
  • Cut a small curved point from the scraps and attach it to the right side of the pizza, pressing the seams together.
  • Spread the pizza sauce on top of dough, leaving about a 1-inch border all the way around.
  • Top with the shredded mozzarella cheese.
  • Position two pepperonis vertically on each point.  Position 3 pepperonis in a curved row on the bottom third of the pizza, followed by 3 more pepperonis underneath the first row.
  • Carefully slide the parchment with the pizza onto a pizza peel.  Then use the peel to carefully transfer the pizza on the parchment to the preheated pizza stone.  Bake for about 5 minutes, until crust is browned and cheese is bubbly.
  • Pipe a circle in the center of the pizza with the Sriracha.
  • Pipe two straight lines of pesto from the top of the Sriracha circles to the inner crust of the ship points.
  • Pipe three lines of pesto from the left side of Sriracha circle to the crust.
  • Pipe an outline of pesto around the right cockpit section of the ship.  Pipe a line of pesto underneath that from the Sriracha circle to the crust.
  • Pipe two small vertical lines on each ship point above the pepperoni.
