Deluxe Pizza

Pizza Toppings
1/2 cup Prego Marinara Sauce
small can olives
1 green bell pepper (chopped)
1/2 small onion (chopped)
6 mushrooms (sliced)
2 cups Pizza Cheese Blend (Cheddar Cheese and Mozzerella)
Pizza Dough
1 cup very warm water
1 tsp sugar
1 Tbs yeast
3 Tbs oil
2 1/2 c flour
1 tsp salt

Dissolve sugar in warm water then sprinkle yeast on top and float for 1 minute. Stir in yeast and proof (let it sit) for 10 minutes- yeast should foam. Stir in oil, salt and flour and knead for 10 minutes. Place dough in oiled bowl and let rise for 1 1/2 hours.
How to put together:
Preheat oven to 400. If you have a pizza stone (they make the best pizzas), put it in the oven to preheat as well. Remove hot pizza stone from oven and sprinkle with corn meal. Roll or toss dough and place on stone. Once dough is on the pizza stone place the marinara around pizza. Then add on pepperoni, green bell peppers, onion, mushrooms and olives. Cover with Pizza Cheese Blend. (Cheddar cheese and Mozzerella) Bake 17-18 minutes or until crust is golden brown. (That time is for a pizza stone - if you are using a cookie sheet, it may be a shorter time.)
