Awesome Pepperoni Pizza

This is a very quick pizza to make, that is why it is called Awesome!!!

2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 pkg. (1/4-oz.) dry yeast
1 Tbsp. plus 2 tsp. olive oil
3/4 cup pizza sauce
12 oz. mozzarella, sliced
1-3/4 oz. pepperoni slices (about 25 slices)
1/2 tsp. dried oregano, crushed
1/8 tsp. black pepper

Preheat the oven to 400*F. Lightly grease a 12x9" baking sheet. Sift the flour and salt into a large bowl. Stir in the yeast. Make a well in the center and add olive oil and 1 cup lukewarm water. Mix until a soft dough forms. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently for 5 minutes.

Roll out dough and press into prepared baking sheet. Cover allow to rest for 10 minutes at room temperature, then bake for 5-7 minutes.

Remove crust from the oven and spread the sauce on top, leaving a 3/4" border. Arrange the mozzarella on top and then the pepperoni. Sprinkle with oregano and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil and bake until golden, 15-20 minutes.

Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, slice the pizza into 6 square slices. Serve hot.

NOTE: You can add many of your own toppings or a mixture.
