Measure + Mix Ingredients 


Add dry ingredients to a stand mixer bowl and mix with a whisk. Use dough hook  & turn setting on low. Slowly add warm water. Mix just until the ingredients come together.

Knead Dough 


Dough will be sticky, that's okay. Cover  and allow to rest for 5 minutes, then knead for 9 minutes. Dough should come together and not stick to the sides of the mixing bowl.

Transfer Dough


Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface. Place flour on your hands and work dough so that it comes together in a ball and doesn't stick to the work surface.

Place Dough in Pan


Add olive oil to a 13x9 pan & cover sides in oil, then dough. Leave to rest for 15 minutes to allow gluten in the flour to relax for easier stretching.

Stretch Dough


Grease your fingertips with olive oil and begin to evenly stretch dough, pushing from the center to the corners of the pan. Try your best to make the dough touch each corner.



Cover pan with saran wrap and place in a warm area or in your oven under "proof" setting for 1½-2 hours or until dough has tripled in size.

Top with cheese


Top with shredded mozzarella and cubed monterey jack cheese. Be sure to line cheese along the edges as this will yield crispy and crunchy edges.

Add Homemade Tomato Sauce


Next, divide 1⅓ cups prepared tomato sauce to make 3 lines across the pan (lengthwise).

Top with Pepperoni


Lastly, top pizza with pepperoni. Place pizza on the lowest rack in preheated 500°F oven and cook for 15-17 minutes, turning once at the halfway point. 

Let Stand for 5 Minutes


Once cheese is golden brown, remove from oven. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing into 8 pieces.


Enjoy this cheesy, chewy goodness while it's warm!
