  • Pizza dough (enough to make one extra large pizza)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • one package of pepperoni slice (7 ounces)
  • 3-4 small size Roma tomato, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 5-6 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, cubed


  1. Preheat the oven to 450F.
  2. In a non-stick metal cake pan (13 x 9 inches) add 3 tablespoons of olive oil and coat the pan. Make sure to coat the bottom and all sides of the pan.
  3. Stretch the prepared pizza dough to cover the bottom of the pan. Use your finger tips and poke it generously as you are making focaccia bread.
  4. Spread about heaping cup of shredded mozzarella cheese on top of the dough.
  5. Place pepperoni and tomato slices.
  6. Sprinkle with dried basil.
  7. Top with rest of the shredded mozzarella cheese and Monterey Jack cheese cubes.
  8. Bake for 17 to 20 minutes until all the cheese is melted and forms a crust on the edge of the pan.
  9. Take it out of the pan and let it cool slightly. Take the pizza out of the pan (you might have to use a wooden spoon to loosen up/scrape up the melted cheese). Slice the pizza into squares and serve warm.
