The Mama’s Pizza


  • 2 already cooked pizza crusts
  • 1 small jar of pizza sauce (non-meaty spagetti sauce will do as well)
  • 1 8 oz bag of finely shredded italian blend cheese
  • 1 8 oz bag of finely shredded pizza blend cheese
  • 2 T dried basil
  • 1 T garlic powder
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 T honey
  • 2 T extra virgin olive oil
  • toppings: any vegetable and meat of choice (tonight we’re using 12 oz of chopped canadian bacon and a 3.5 oz bag of bacon pieces)


  1. Preheat oven according to instructions on crust package.
  2. In a small bowl combine basil, oregano, garlic powder, and black pepper. Mix well and set aside.
  3. In a small, microwave safe measuring cup (the kind with a spout, like Pyrex) combine honey and olive oil and heat for about 20 seconds. Mix well.
  4. Lightly drizzle honey/oil onto pizza crusts. With hands or paper towel, spread evenly over both crusts.
  5. Sprinkle 1/4 of spice mixture on each crust (use 1/2 mix total).
  6. Generously pour pizza sauce on center of each crust. Spread with the bottom of a large spoon or ladel, leaving about an inch of crust around the edge.
  7. Sprinkle one cup (about half) of each type of cheese evenly on each crust.
  8. Sprinkle half of toppings evenly on each crust.
  9. Repeat steps 7 and 8.
  10. Sprinkle the rest of the spice mix over the top of each pizza.
  11. Bake according to instructions on crust, or until the cheese is bubbly and the crust is golden.

Yields 12-16 pieces of pizza, depending on how you dvide it up.
