Servings8 slices


  • 1 loaf Rhodes Bake-N-Serv frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp dried basil
  • ¼ tsp dried oregano
  • ½ cup pizza sauce
  • 8 oz fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • 4 oz fresh parmesan cheese, shredded about 1 cup total shredded
  • 8 leaves fresh basil
  • 25 pepperoni slices


  • Turn the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Lightly spray your cast iron pan (I like to use a 10 or 12 inch pan) with cooking spray or brush with oil.
  • Gently press your thawed Rhodes bread dough along the bottom and up the sides of your cast iron pan. If it isn't stretching nicely give it about 10-15 minutes to rest and try again.
  • Mix the olive oil, garlic powder, basil, and oregano together and lightly brush it on to your prepared crust.
  • Bake your crust for 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and add your sauce, pepperoni, cheeses, and fresh basil.
  • Bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees.
  • Turn the heat up to 425 degrees and bake an additional 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Let cool about 10 minutes before cutting and serving.



Thawing your bread dough:
My favorite way of thawing the Rhodes Frozen Dough is to put the frozen dough into a large bowl that is sprayed with cooking spray. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and put the bowl in the fridge overnight. Take the bowl out a few hours before using the dough to come to room temp on the counter.
