¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese

¼ teaspoon dried oregano

1 raw pizza dough crust

  2. Combine tomato sauce, Parmesan cheese and oregano in a small bowl and set aside. 
  3. Place your raw pizza dough in the Pizza Chef insert tray, and add the sauce mixture, mozzarella cheese and pepperoni. 
  4. Place insert tray in skillet, cover the skillet and cook for about 10 minutes. 
  5. Once the cheese has melted to perfection, let it cool for a few minutes before slicing it up and enjoying!
