Friday Night Pizza

Many people enjoy ordering pizza on a Friday night. It’s affordable, fills the family and no one has to cook. We just can’t seem to find a good pizza place to order from in Florida. It stinks!

That’s why I usually make homemade pizza on Friday nights. It’s still affordable and fills the family, but I DO have to cook. It is quick and yummy though!

Publix makes it easy with the pizza dough already flattened out!



  • 2 packages of pizza dough(I buy the ones already flattened out from Publix.)
  • olive oil
  • 2 cans of tomato sauce(I buy plain tomato sauce, but you can buy a can of pizza sauce if you prefer)
  • salt and pepper
  • crushed red pepper
  • oregano
  • shredded or whole mozzarella(If whole slice thin)
  • grated pecorino romano cheese
  • pepperoni
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced small
  • 1 package of mushrooms(I prefer baby bella because they have a lot of flavor), rinsed and diced small
  • 1/4 of an onion, diced small
  • 2 cloves of garlic sliced


  1. Lightly oil the pizza pan and then stretch it out a little to the size of the pan.
  2. Drizzle a little EVOO on the dough.
  3. Spread as much sauce as you’d like.
  4. Sprinkle on a little pepper, crushed red pepper and oregano.
  5. Add the mozzarella and grated cheese. (You could keep it as simple as that or add your favorite topping.  I usually do a pepperoni pizza for the kids and a veggie pizza for Matt and I.)
  6. Saute green peppers, mushrooms, and onions.  Add sliced garlic in the end with a little salt and pepper.
  7. Add YOUR favorite topping to the pizza.  Drizzle with EVOO and bake at 450 degrees till it’s nice and crispy! My new oven has a pizza setting which is amazing! The pizza cooks in a really short time at a high temperature.  It tastes the best like that.
