1 hr 30 mins

Step 1

Add warm water and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Stir together to combine. Sprinkle the yeast on top and allow it to dissolve.

Step 2

When the mixture looks foamy (after approx. 5 to 10 minutes), stir in 2 cups of the flour until incorporated. Stir in the olive oil, garlic powder, and salt.

Step 3

While continuing to mix, add in more flour until the dough gathers itself into a ball and pulls away from the sides of the bowl cleanly.

Step 4

Lightly mist the bowl with non-stick spray, place the dough back in, and cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a damp towel. Allow to rise.

Step 5

When the dough has grown to twice its original size, punch it down, and transfer it in the prepared pan.

Step 6

Press the dough into an even layer in the base of the pan(s), and bake for 15 minutes at 350 F.

Step 7

Cool the partially baked crust until it can be handled, then sprinkle with cheese, pressing it firmly up against the sides of the pan.

Step 8

Apply the pizza sauce in stripes, then add the pepperoni. Bake for 10-15 minutes at 500 F.
