Let's Make It
Reserve 1 Tbsp. Parmesan for later use. Mix remaining Parmesan with 4 cups flour and yeast in large bowl. Add water and oil; stir until mixture forms soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface 5 min. or until dough is smooth and elastic, gradually adding remaining flour.
Cut dough into 4 pieces. (Each piece is enough for a 12-inch pizza.) Spray 1 dough piece with cooking spray; cover with plastic wrap. Let rise in warm place 15 min. (See tip for how to store remaining dough for another use.)
To Make One Pizza:
Heat oven to 400ºF. Roll 1 dough piece into 12-inch round on lightly floured surface; place in pizza pan. Bake 6 min. Top with tomato sauce, tomatoes, mozzarella, pepperoni and reserved Parmesan.
Bake 15 min. or until mozzarella is melted and edge of crust is golden brown.
Since this recipe makes enough dough for 4 crusts, you can store any unused dough in the refrigerator or freezer to have on hand for a quick pizza. Or if serving a crowd, you can use all the dough to make 4 pizzas.
Place each of any remaining dough pieces in separate resealable freezer-weight plastic bags that have been sprayed with cooking spray. Seal bags; refrigerate up to 2 days or freeze up to 3 months. If freezing the dough, thaw it overnight in the refrigerator before using as directed.
