SANDRA'S HOMEMADE PEPPERONI PIZZA and TWISTY BREADSTICKS
Pinch of kosher salt
Pinch of freshly ground pepper
½ teaspoon Italian herb seasoning blend
1 teaspoon honey
¼ package of pepperoni slices
½ can of sliced olives
2 cups mozzarella cheese
--Garnish with fresh chopped basil
Preheat oven to 475 degrees, and set rack to a low position in your oven. Prepare pizza pan by brushing it with olive oil, then sprinkling it with cornmeal, and set aside.
Roll out pizza dough into a round, slightly larger than pizza pan. Place rolled-out pizza dough onto pizza pan, and fold under edges to form a lip; brush all over with olive oil, and par-bake for 5 minutes, remove and set aside.
Meanwhile, heat a large skillet to medium-high head, and add the olive oil, onion and bell pepper, and saute until onions are translucent. Add the garlic and continue sautéing for 30 more seconds. Add the remaining ingredients, and bring to boiling point, and then reduce heat and let simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, until sauce reduces and thickens. Place the sauce on the par-baked pizza crust, and continue baking for 15 minutes, until crust and cheese are lightly golden.
Meanwhile, begin forming breadsticks:
