It can be pizza time any night of the week with this easy deep-dish pie recipe.
Supreme Pizza
Makes 1 (12- to 14-inch) pizza
  • 1 (16-ounce) deli pizza dough
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup pizza sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1 cup crumbled cooked Italian sausage
  • ½ cup thinly sliced yellow onion
  • ½ cup chopped green bell pepper
  • ¼ cup pepperoni slices
  • ¼ cup sliced black olives
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Garnish: chopped fresh oregano, crushed red pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 450°. Place a large enamel-coated cast-iron skillet or braiser in the bottom third of oven to preheat.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 12-inch circle. Fold dough over a rolling pin, and carefully place on a large piece of parchment paper. Brush dough with oil.
  3. Spread pizza sauce onto dough, leaving a ¼-inch border. Sprinkle with ½ cup mozzarella. Top with sausage, onion, bell pepper, pepperoni, olives, Parmesan, and remaining ½ cup mozzarella. Sprinkle with oregano and pepper. Using a small paddle or cutting board, carefully place pizza on parchment in preheated pan, letting excess parchment extend over sides of pan.
  4. Bake until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted, 15 to 20 minutes. Using excess parchment as handles, remove pizza, and place on a cutting board. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Garnish with oregano and red pepper, if desired.
To reheat leftover pizza, preheat broiler to high. Place pizza slices in a cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Cook until the bottoms become crisp, 4 to 5 minutes. Place under broiler until cheese is bubbly, about 1 minute.
