This recipe was too good not to add. I found it on the back of a Sargento Bistro Blends package. I had some pizza dough in the freezer from the last time I'd made fresh dough, so I decided to use it instead of making fresh stuff. I mixed up a pepperoni pizza for Ron, then got to mine. I didn't use the exact measurements from the Sargento recipe, but I'm including the suggested measurements below. Mine had about 1/2 the cheese, 2x as many olives and 2x as many peppers. Yum! It was seriously awesome.
