Ingredients

  • 1 egg, separated
  • 1/2 cup pitted ripe olives, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, snipped
  • 6 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded, divided (1 1/2 cups)
  • 2 1/2 ounces Parmesan cheese, grated (1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons)
  • 1 (15 ounce) container part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1 (16 ounce) pouch Pantry Pizza Crust & Roll Mix (including yeast packet)
  • 1 tablespoon Pantry Italian Seasoning Mix
  • 1 1/4 cups very warm water (120 to 130 degrees F)
  • 4 ounces sliced pepperoni, divided

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Separate egg over Small Batter Bowl using Egg Separator; beat lightly. Set egg yolk aside, covered, for later use. Chop olives using Food Chopper. Snip parsley with Kitchen Shears. Grate mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses using Deluxe Cheese Grater. Add olives, parsley, ricotta cheese, 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese and 1/2 cup of the Parmesan cheese to Batter Bowl; mix well with Classic Scraper. Set aside.
  3. In Classic Batter Bowl, combine Pizza Crust & Roll Mix with yeast packet and Seasoning Mi. Add warm water and stir until mixture forms a ball.
  4. Turn dough out onto well-floured Cutting Board. With floured hands, gently knead dough 8-10 times. Divide dough in half using Handy Scraper. Flour both sides of dough using Flour/Sugar Shaker; roll out one piece of dough to edge of Cutting Board using Dough and Pizza Roller. Place dough in bottom of Rectangular Baker, shaping to cover bottom.
  5. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese over dough to within 1/2 inch of edge. Layer half of the pepperoni over cheese. Spread ricotta mixture evenly over pepperoni. Top with remaining pepperoni and mozzarella cheese.
  6. Roll out remaining dough and place over filling. Press dough all around edge to seal with bottom crust. Brush surface of dough with reserved egg yolk using Pastry Brush. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese. Using V-Shaped Cutter, cut a decorative X pattern over surface of dough, creating holes in top layer, for steam to escape.
  7. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until deep golden brown.
  8. Allow to stand 10 minutes before cutting.
