Popular Pepperoni Pizza on a Garlic Crust

Pepperoni is the most requested pizza topping of all time and with this delicious recipe for homemade pizza you can create pepperoni pizza at home as a treat for the family. A lot of pizza recipes contain pepperoni but this one has lots of pepperoni in it so nobody can complain that their slice is short on their favorite pizza topping!

Also, these are personal pizzas so everyone gets the same amount. The pepperoni is teamed with mozzarella cheese, which goes beautifully stringy and stretchy when hot, mushrooms and tomatoes for plenty of nutrients and flavor too. This is one of our pizza dough recipes, which you can make in a bread machine to save time.

Just look at the pizza in the picture and see how generously topped it is. Seriously, it is hard to look at without your mouth watering, so just imagine how it smells and of course how it tastes! As for making it, well that is an easy process too. You will be using a bread machine to make your own crust, although if you prefer to use readymade dough or a rolled-out crust from the store, that is your prerogative. It depends how much time you have available too, but even if you use a readymade crust the pizza will still technically be homemade because the pepperoni and other toppings are prepared and added by you, and you are baking the pizza.

Choose your favorite pizza sauce for this, and add shredded mozzarella, pepperoni, mushrooms, and a generous pinch of mixed herbs, or perhaps some dried oregano which is traditional. This is one of the most delicious and filling pizza recipes you can make, and any pepperoni fan is going to love how it tastes.
