The Chef Boyardee Pizza Kit gives you a chance to make your own homemade pizza just the way you like it. You can buy the cheese pizza and add some of your own toppings to make a specialty pizza you will enjoy. Some of the ingredients you can add include sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, onions and green peppers. The recipe makes a 12-inch medium pizza.
Things You'll Need
Remove the ingredients from the box. There is one can of tomato sauce, one bag of cheese and one bag of pizza dough mix.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray the cookie sheet or round pizza pan with a non-stick cooking spray.
Pour the dry dough mix in a bowl. Add 2/3 cups of warm water. Use a fork to blend the mix and water together until you have a moist dough ball. Drip 1 tbsp. of vegetable oil on the dough ball. Let the dough mixture stand in a warm place for 10 to 20 minutes. The longer the dough sits, the easier it is to work the dough.
Place the dough ball on the cookie sheet or pizza pan. Use your hands to flatten the dough ball so the crust is about 1/3-inch thick. Use your fingers to pinch the edge of the crust all the way around to give it a little lip.
Pour half of the pizza sauce on the pizza crust and spread around with the back side of a spoon, keeping the sauce 1/2 inch from the edge. Add more sauce until you have the thickness of the sauce you want.
Sprinkle on the cheese. Add any additional toppings. If using sausage, pieces should not be more than a dime in diameter. When adding canned mushrooms, drain first and sprinkle over the pizza. Additional shredded mozzarella cheese can be sprinkled over the prepared cheese and toppings.
Bake the pizza for 18 minutes. Check the pizza after 18 minutes to see if the crust is golden and the cheese is melted. Cook an additional two minutes if needed.
Remove the pizza from the oven and let cool for about three minutes. Use a pizza cutter or knife to slice the pizza.
