Pizza has always been my favorite food, for as far back as I can remember. Then about 2 years ago I started not liking the taste of the sauce and/or crust, depending on where the pizza was from. Now the only pizza I really like is CiCi’s  which is 45 min. away.

The other day when I was at Publix I saw some  Mama Mary’s Pizza crusts hanging on an end cap and decided to try them. There were 3 in each pack, 7″ original crusts. I didn’t see any thin crusts which is what I prefer but next time I’ll try to find them. I bought some Boar’s Head Turkey Pepperoni & Ragu Pizza Sauce to top it with. I had some Provolone cheese that I’d bought a few days before in the deli and decided to use it. I had planned on making it one night when my son Anthony wanted pizza, but last night I was on my own for supper so I decided to make one of them.

Brush with olive oil

Spread on pizza sauce

add pepperoni (I like a lot)

and cheese (don’t care if it’s not pretty)

Preheat oven to 450°

Turn oven down to 425°

Bake for 8-10 minutes on pizza pan or oven rack

I baked my pizza on the rack in a toaster oven for 8 min. So did I like it? That would be a big yes. The crust was crispy and golden brown just the way I like it. The sauce had a good flavor, not too spicy or acidic, and of course the provolone added a very nice taste and brought back good memories (I grew up in Ohio where they use Provolone on pizza). Next time I’ll try the thin crust though, less carbs 🙂

  1. Yay for discovering a crust you like!! I grew up in Ohio too but I don’t remember provolone on the pizza we used to get from a pizza place owned by my great-aunt. (and, no, we aren’t Italian!)

  2. You make it so appetizing! I’d like a slice right now.

  3. I haven’t been happy with store-bought crusts either! Happy you found one you like. I have a few recipes for homemade, but I’m not wild about them either.

    • I was talking about restaurant pizza too. I rarely make my own pizza but thought I’d try it. I’ve only tried one other store bought pizza.

  4. My favourite food!

  5. I have still to find a store bought pizza base that I like. I tend to use flatbreads as a base instead. Have a great week. Cheers from Carole’s Chatter

  6. It always feels good to find a meal that tastes great and is easy to make. I think I’ve seen those pizza crusts before.

  7. That’s great to hear about pre-made crusts. I love pizza too and this sounds like a fun way to make it!

  8. I love Mama Mary’s crusts but haven’t used them in forever! I think they’re definitely the best of the premade crusts. I think I have had thin crust though it has been awhile so I can’t be quite sure. Your pizza looks fantastic and these crusts are going on my grocery list.

    • I made the other two crusts last night, one for my son and one for me. I forgot to put the olive oil on the crust, but it was still really good. My son liked his too! I’m going to buy more the next time I go buy groceries. Hopefully I can find the thin crusts.
