Pizza is a staple meal. When my kids were younger, we enjoyed it once a week. I mean really, is there anyone that does not like pizza? Today’s easy sheet pan recipe is a great way to make your pizza at home.
The dough takes about 15 minutes to make and then it’s ready to use. The simple dough is pressed into a sheet pan. Then you partial bake the crust for 10 minutes. Then you just top to your hearts desire.
The good thing is this recipe is easy to double. Now that both of my boys are married, one sheet pan is enough for me my husband, and my daughter. However, if my boys were still at I home I would definitely need to make 2.
When I make this I made half with ham and pineapple and the other half with pepperoni and olives. That is the great thing about the shape of this pizza. It is easy to split this easy sheet pan pizza in half with different toppings or even in thirds.
