Makes 1 pizza

Things you'll need

  • 3 cups all purpose flour, separated in halves
  • 1 packet active yeast
  • 1 ½ teaspoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 cans sliced black olives
  • 2 packages pepperoni
  • 1 jar pizza sauce
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese (1 bag)
  • Sliced mozzarella cheese (2 slices)
  • Medium mixing bowl
  • Whisk
  • Electric mixer with dough attachment
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Olive oil
  • Rolling pin
  • Large pizza pan
  • Teardrop cookie cutter
  • Pizza cutter

Let's get started!

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk warm water, sugar, and yeast until frothy.
  2. Add in the first half of flour (1½ cups) and mix with a fork until it forms a loose dough. Mix in oil and salt.
  3. Mix the dough in an electric mixer on a medium speed with the dough hook attachment. Slowly mix in the second half of flour (1½ cups). Continue mixing for another 3 to 4 minutes until dough forms.
  4. Lightly coat the inside of a mixing bowl with olive oil. Place the dough in the bowl and let it sit out at room temperature for about half an hour to rise.
  5. Roll out the dough and place it on a large pizza pan. Preheat oven to 450ºF.

Time to decorate!

  1. Spread pizza sauce on the dough, leaving an inch or two along the edges for the crust.
  2. Sprinkle a thin layer of shredded mozzarella cheese on top of the sauce and then cover with a layer of pepperonis.
  3. Use a cookie cutter to cut a teardrop shape out of a mozzarella slice. Cut the tear drop in half vertically (PICTURE at 6:23). Place the cheese slices onto pizza where eyes should be. Use olives to fill in for the black part of the mask.
  4. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until the crust turns golden brown. Remove and let cool completely.
  5. TaDa! The Deadpool Pepperoni Pizza is finished and ready for action!
