For the Dough:

  • 5 fl oz (150 ml) water;
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil;
  • 10 ½ oz (300 g) flour;
  • 2 tsp sugar;
  • 1 tsp dry yeast;
  • 1 tsp salt.

For the Filling:

  • 3 tbsp olive oil;
  • 1 onion;
  • 1 bell pepper;
  • 2 ⅔ oz (75 g) pepperoni sausages;
  • 3 oz (85 g) Parmesan;
  • 2 ½ oz (70 g) mozzarella;
  • 3 ½ oz (100 g) hard cheese;
  • 14 oz (400 g) tomato sauce.


  1. Dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water, add 3–4 tablespoons of flour, mix thoroughly, and let sit for 15 minutes until the yeast dissolves.
  2. Add salt, vegetable oil, and the remaining flour to the resulting mixture, knead a soft, elastic dough. Knead for 5 minutes, form a ball, cover the dough, and set it aside for 40–60 minutes to let it rise.
  3. Pour 1 tablespoon of olive oil into a preheated pan and brown the thinly chopped onion. Set it aside.
  4. Pour one more tablespoon of olive oil into the pan and lightly fry bell pepper sliced into rings until soft. Set it aside as well.
  5. Add a little oil, grease the pan, and lay pepperoni slices out on the bottom. Place bell pepper rings on top, then onion, grated parmesan, mozzarella, slices of hard cheese, and cover the filling with tomato paste.
  6. On a board sprinkled with flour, evenly roll out the dough into a layer equal to the diameter of the pan with the filling. Fold the edges of the dough inside, like in an upside-down cake. Brush the dough with oil.
  7. Bake the dish at 390 °F for 25 minutes, then remove the dough from the oven and turn the pizza upside down with the help of a tray.

I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.
