1 can (13.8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated classic pizza crust

2 teaspoons olive oil

1/2 cup pizza sauce

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (8 oz)

1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley

2 packages (3 oz each) sliced pepperoni

1 stick (1 oz) string cheese


1.  Heat oven to 425°F. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. Unroll dough on cookie sheet; starting at center, press out dough into 14×12-inch rectangle. Brush dough with olive oil; bake 7 minutes.

2. Spread pizza sauce evenly over crust; top with mozzarella cheese and parsley. Arrange pepperoni in football shape on center of pizza (see photo). Cut string cheese lengthwise into 4 strips (save 2 for another use). To make football laces, place 1 strip horizontally on center of football. Cut remaining strip into 5 pieces; arrange vertically on top of horizontal strip.

3. Bake 10 to 13 minutes longer or until crust is deep golden brown and cheese is melted and bubbly. To serve, cut into 4 rows by 4 rows, making 16 pieces.

Another great treat from Pillsbury!
