  • 1 lb pizza dough frozen, thawed, or a batch of No Yeast Pizza Dough
  • 14 oz red pizza sauce (jar) or half of a batch of Homemade Pizza Sauce
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 4 cups olives chopped, use kalamata, green and/or black


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and lightly coat a 12- or 13-inch round pizza pan with cooking spray. Roll the pizza dough out into a circle on a lightly floured work surface. Transfer to the prepared pan, folding the dough over at the edges.
  • Spread the pizza sauce in an even layer over the dough. Top with an even layer of chopped olives. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until crust is lightly golden brown. Cut into slices and serve!


  • If you’re up for it, I highly recommend making your own No Yeast Homemade Pizza Dough. It is super easy and is totally worth the tiny bit of effort required!
  • As long as you’re going homemade for the crust, you may as well make your own Homemade Pizza Sauce, too! It is super easy and will taste way better than anything you can find in the store.
  • The best cheeses to use on homemade pizza are mozzarella, provolone and cheddar.
  • Baking time for pizzas will vary by a bit, so use your oven light and start peeking in around the 15-minute mark. The crust will be a golden brown color when the pizza is done and the cheese will be melted uniformly all over the surface.
