What You Will Need to Make the Sheet Pan Pepperoni Pizza
You will need several ingredients to prepare the Large Family Sheet Pan Pepperoni Pizza, including:
- Pizza Sauce. You should have two jars of pizza sauce to use. It does not matter which brand you choose!
- Pizza Dough. Use four cans of refrigerated pizza dough. You can also make your own pizza dough with my recipe.
- Pepperoni. Grab one 6 oz. package of pepperoni to add on top of your cheese before baking your pizza.
- Mozzarella Cheese. Add plenty of mozzarella cheese on top of your pizza sauce.
You will also need extra-virgin olive oil, grated parmesan or pecorino romano cheese, and freshly chopped basil. With minimal ingredients, you can have a fresh and tasty pizza ready to serve! See my kitchen tools list to help stock your kitchen.
How to Make Pizza Dough for Homemade Pizza
If you have the extra time, you might want to make the pizza dough for your Large Family Sheet Pan Pepperoni Pizza. The only ingredients needed to prepare a fresh and tasty pizza dough include all-purpose flour, sea salt, olive oil, garlic powder, and dry yeast. It takes a bit more effort, but the homemade pizza dough is just as good as the pre-made one that you can buy at your local grocery store. You can also make the pizza dough ahead and freeze it using my recipes so it’s ready to go!
Other Toppings to Add to Your Pizza
If you want to add more toppings or replace the pepperoni, consider using seasoned ground beef, or crumbled sausage, bacon, or ham as toppings for your pizza. If you would prefer vegetarian toppings, try baby spinach, chopped black olive, sliced mushrooms, sliced red onions, and green peppers.
What Other Ways Can I Make Pizza Every Week?
If your family loves pizza, I’ve got you covered! I have lots of different pizza-style recipes for you to make. Start with my Low Carb Deep Dish Pizza, or my Low Carb Pizza Casserole if you want a low-carb meal. For lunch, here are my English Muffin Pepperoni Pizzas, my Pepperoni Pizza Boats, these Pepperoni Pizza Muffins, or these Pepperoni Pizza Hot Pockets. Both of those are freezer-friendly and easy lunch ideas. If you love chicken, here is Low Carb Pizza Stuffed Chicken. For breakfast, try Breakfast Pizza. For a fun snack, try this Cheesy Skillet Dip Pizza. A fun lunch or dinner is this Angry Birds Pizza. Finally, here are two casseroles. This Original Pizza Casserole (freezer friendly!), and this Sausage and Pepperoni Casserole.
How to Freeze or Make-ahead Pizza Meals
Most of the pizza recipes listed above are freezer-friendly. You can check each recipe individually for freezer directions. For the most part, if it’s a casserole you should be able to assemble it, then wrap it with foil and plastic wrap and place it in the freezer. Most casseroles are good for 3-6 months in the freezer. Place them in the fridge the evening before you plan to use them and then follow the heating instructions for each casserole.
If they are individual pieces or a whole pizza cut into pieces, then you will want to cut your pizza into individual slices if it is not individual pieces already and wrap each piece in plastic wrap. After wrapping the pizza slice with plastic wrap, add a sheet of aluminum foil over each of the slices and put them in the refrigerator. Your pizza slices should stay good in the fridge for three days. You can freeze the pizza slices and store them in your freezer for two months. Reheat them in the microwave, toaster oven, or oven.
