What You Get
Par-baked pizza crust
What You’ll Need
Dried oregano (optional)
Chile flakes (optional)
Makes 3 servings
Active Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Make sure the rack is in the center of the oven.
Slice the shallot and about half of the pepper, reserving the rest for another use.
Remove the pizza crust from the package, but leave it on the cardboard. Spread with ½ cup tomato sauce. Sprinkle with about ¼ cup of the shallot. Scatter with the pepper and cheese curd. Arrange some of the pepperoni on top. Gently shimmy the pizza from the cardboard directly onto the oven rack and bake until the edges are golden, 8 to 10 minutes.
Using a clean towel or the cardboard, carefully transfer the pizza to a cutting board. Sprinkle with dried oregano or chile flakes, if you want some heat. Cut the pizza into wedges and serve warm.
