Pepperoni & Basil Pizza

Pepperoni Basil Pizza Recipe



  • 1 Full Circle Bakery pizza dough
  • 3/4 cup Sonoma Gourmet pizza sauce
  • 15 Hobb's uncured pepperoni slices (or as much as your heart desires)
  • 6oz Rumiano Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 Tbsp fresh basil chopped, more for garnish


  1. Allow your dough to proof at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 500˚F.
  3. Roll the pizza dough out into a shape that is roughly 8"x12”.
  4. Once oven is preheated, transfer to a sheet tray and par-bake in oven for 5 minutes.
  5. Slice mozzarella into 1/4" thick slices and cut in half. Set aside.
  6. Remove par-baked dough from oven and spread pizza sauce on the pizza, leaving 1" around the sides for the crust edge.
  7. Distribute mozzarella moons and pepperoni on top.
  8. Bake the pizza for 10-12 minutes or until the cheese is lightly browned and crust is golden. Rotate the pizza halfway into baking to cook evenly.
  9. While the pizza is cooking, chiffonade your basil: Remove basil leaves from their stems and stack on top of each other, then roll together tightly and thinly slice.
  10. Remove pizza from oven and allow to rest for about 5 minutes. Garnish with fresh basil before cutting into slices.
