  • 1 package pizza dough don't roll it out, your going to cut it into rounds, like you do with cookie dough
  • ½ cup pizza sauce more or less to taste
  • 1 ½ cups mozzarella cheese more if desired
  • 1 large green pepper you can swap them for red, yellow or orange, or do a variety, diced


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray.
  • Place the pizza dough on a cutting board. Do not roll it out. Instead you want to cut it into pieces like you would with cookie dough that comes in a canister or tube. Cut them about ¼ inch thick pieces (approximately). Lay the rounds on the cookie sheet.
  • Spread the sauce over top and smooth out evenly.
  • Top each round with mozzarella cheese.
  • Toss some peppers over top.
  • Place in the oven for about 10 to 12 minutes, depending on the thickness of your dough. Start keeping an eye on them at the 8 minute mark.
  • Remove from oven. Place on a platter.
  • Serve with a big old back to school smile!
