Easy Sicilian Pizza

I know that the authentic Sicilian Pizza does not use mozzarella cheese but usually uses pecorino cheese and anchovies. However, the Sicilian Pizza I am talking about today is the New York style Sicilian Pizza. The dough for this pizza is thicker than the regular NY pizza and pie is usually square/rectangle in shape.
Alritey, now that we have cleared all that, here is the easiest way to make a home made Sicilian Pizza. All you need is a can of pizza dough, tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese and toppings ( I used pepperoni, bacon, sausage and onions) for your pizza.

First, you would need to spray on some non stick cooking spray onto your baking sheet. Then press the pizza dough onto the sheet. Make sure that its not too thin, this is after all a Sicilian Pizza.

Next, spread the tomato sauce onto the dough. Do not go overboard with the sauce, we do not want a soggy pizza pie.

Sprinkle some mozzarella cheese over the sauce.

This is the fun part. You can put any topping that you like on the pizza. From chicken to mushrooms to pepperoni, be creative! I have pepperoni, bacon, sausages and onions on mine.

Cover it all up with more mozzarella cheese and pop it into a 400F oven. Allow it to bake for about 16 minutes and then remove it from the oven to cool.

Here we go! One piping hot Sicilian Pizza with pepperoni, bacon, sausages, onions and lots of ooohheey gooeey cheese!
