  • 1 can (13.8 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Classic Crust Pizza Crust
  • 1 can (8 oz.) pizza sauce
  • 8 ounces shredded cheese (mozzarella, cheddar or pizza blend)
  • Favorite pizza toppings (pepperoni, cooked sausage, mushrooms, baby spinach etc.)


  • 1
    Preheat oven and prepare pizza crust according to package directions, placing the dough onto a baking sheet or pizza stone.
  • 2
    Slice or dice meats, veggies and other topping ingredients in similar-sized pieces.
  • 3
    Using a large spoon, ladle pizza sauce over dough. Use the back of the spoon to spread it to a uniform thickness, making sure to spread it almost to the crust edges.
  • 4
    Layer a generous portion of shredded cheese over the sauce.
  • 5
    Add toppings, one at a time, in layers.
  • 6
    Bake according to package directions (usually 12-18 minutes), until crust is golden and cheese is bubbly.

Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    It’s your homemade pizza—go crazy! Mozzarella and cheddar are great base cheeses for a tasty pie, but feel free to experiment with other varieties like pepper Jack, burrata, feta—whatever you’re craving.
  • tip 2
    There’s no limit to what you can use to top your homemade pizza, either. Use fresh veggies like chopped bell pepper, baby spinach, arugula, tomatoes or strips of portobello mushrooms. Add flavorful ingredients like chopped olives, bacon bits, roasted garlic or fresh basil. And be sure that whatever meats you add to your pizza have been pre-cooked before they dress your pie.
