  • 1
    Heat oven to 425°F. Spray 15x10x1-inch pan with cooking spray. Unroll dough; place in pan, pressing up and extending over sides by at least 1 inch. Place string cheese around inside edge of pan. Fold extended edge of dough over cheese; press firmly to seal.
  • 2
    In small bowl, mix melted butter and garlic; brush over bottom and edges of dough; sprinkle edges with Italian seasoning.
  • 3
    Spoon and spread sauce evenly over dough. Sprinkle 1/2 cup shredded cheese over sauce. Top with pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, bell pepper, onion and olives.
  • 4
    Bake 15 to 17 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Sprinkle remaining 1 cup cheese on top. Bake 5 to 7 minutes or until cheese is melted. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting.

  • Having all the vegetables washed and chopped before you begin preparing the pizza will make assembly a snap!

Expert Tips

  • Use Italian pork sausage instead of sausage crumbles for more spice. Cook 1 lb Italian sausage until no longer pink; use 1 cup for the recipe today, and freeze the rest for another day.
