I just love a crispy crust pizza. So browning the bottom of the crust before baking was genius! Doing so gives the crust more of a "deep dish" baked feel to it. Of course you can use any kind of toppings on your pizza but because we love pepperoni the most, that's what I used. The whole idea of this recipe is to give you a different way to prepare your Mama Mary's pizza crust. What I also loved about this is how easy it was. I got a delicious pizza prepared, cooked and served in under 30 minutes!!! How cool is THAT? When you're in a hurry during the week or need a quick meal before you run out the door, then try this! I'm pretty sure you're going to love it as much as we did!

4 ounces (about 1/2 cup) Mama Mary's Pizza Sauce
1 -2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Brush top of crust with olive oil.
Melt Crisco in the skillet over medium heat and then place crust in the skillet and cook for 5 minutes on the stove top.
Spread pizza sauce on the crust and add cheese and then pepperoni.
Place the skillet in the oven and cook for 10 minutes until cheese is melted and crust is lightly browned.
(If you don’t have an oven proof skillet, then remove pizza from the skillet and place on a pizza pan and cook for 5 minutes.)
Allow pizza to rest for about 5 minutes before transferring to a cutting surface.
