More About This Recipe

  • Pepperoni is by far America’s favorite pizza topping. Though pizza was originally invented in Italy, pepperoni as a topping wasn’t. That’s right—pepperoni pizza is an American creation. According to this New York Times article, the first reference to pepperoni in print was in 1919, when pizzerias and Italian butcher shops began to flourish in America. Now, you’d be hard-pressed to find a pizzeria in the United States that doesn’t offer pepperoni pizza. You don’t have to go to a pizzeria to enjoy a slice of this classic dish, though. Pepperoni is widely available at grocery stores, and with a few additional basic ingredients like pizza sauce, mozzarella, Parmesan and Pillsbury pizza crust, you can have a whole pepperoni pizza on the table in less than 30 minutes. Trust us, this is the easiest pepperoni pizza recipe out there. Pepperoni pizza is just the beginning!
