Have you ever wanted to make a pizza cake? Well just keep on reading to find out!
Before you begin, the ingredients you need are:
2 cans of pre-made pizza crust or
3 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup of sliced pepperoni
1 tablespoon of butter (optional)
First, you want to preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Next, you want to roll out your dough and cut out 5 circles the size of your tall sided pan. Place them on a cookie sheet and cook them for 8 minutes. Once the dough has been baked lay them on a cooling rack to cool.
Then cut a long strip of dough at least 1/2 inch wide than the height of the pan. then drape the dough around the inside of the pan leaving 1/2 inch over the top of the pan.
Next place one of the baked circles at the bottom of the pan. Then spread pizza sauce over the crust. Then place your pepperoni on top of the sauce. Finally, place some of your mozzarella cheese on top of the pepperoni. You want to put the pepperoni before the cheese so the next layer will stick to the cheese. Repeat for 3 more layers. For the top layer place the crust over the cheese and top with sauce, cheese, then pepperoni.
Next, fold the extra dough over to make a raised crust edge.
Finally, you bake your pizza cake in the oven or until the cake is fully cooked. Let it cool in the pan for 5 minutes. When you remove the cake from the pan, brush the crust with butter and enjoy!
