  • 8 ounces pepperoni slices

Directions:

  1. First, preheat your over to 375 degrees F.
  2. Now, make the crust: Take nonstick vegetable oil cooking spray and generously spray it on two 12-inch pizza pans. Stir together all of the crust ingredients in order to make a thick, smooth, pancake-like batter in a medium bowl. Spread the batter as evenly and thin as possible over the two pans, using a rubber spatula.
  3. Now, place pizza crusts on center racks of the oven and bake until lightly golden brown and firm to touch, for about 12 to 15 minutes.
    Next, remove crusts from the oven and increase the temperature of the oven to 400 degrees F.

  5. Next, compile the pizzas: First spread the tomato sauce evenly over both crusts, and then do the same with the mozzarella cheese. Top first pizza with the onions, bell pepper strips, and mushrooms, and top the other with the sausage, ham, and pepperoni. Sprinkle each pizza with a dash of dried oregano, and lightly sprinkle 1 tablespoon olive oil over each pizza.
  6. Put the pizzas back in the oven to bake until the cheese melts and starts to brown, for another 10 to 12 minutes. In the end, cut each pizza into 8 equal slices.
