Boboli pizza is a lifesaver when you need something quick for dinner. This somewhat thin and crispy pizza crust, still has plenty of “chew”, but also lots of flavor. And the sauce? My favorite!



Pizza Sauce (This makes enough for two pizzas.)

1 15 oz can of tomato sauce

1 T olive oil

1T oregano

1 t chili flakes

½ t sugar

1 ½  t garlic powder

1 T fresh Italian parsley (this really gives a hint of freshness to the sauce) or basil

Salt and fresh ground pepper


1/3 c fresh grated parmesan

1 1/2 c grated mozzarella

½ c of red pepper slices or diced

1/2 c diced or thinly sliced onion

Boars Head Pepperoni sliced thin (12 – 15 slices) This is purely your preference.

6 oz Italian Sausage cooked (I use Boulder Italian Sausage.)Place in bowl and cook in microwave about 1 and a half minutes loosely covered. Drain grease.

2 T Pepperoncini drained


Preheat oven to 450. Set oven rack to highest position.

Open tomato sauce and pour into a big measuring cup. Add seasonings and feel free to adjust to your taste. This makes enough for two pizzas.

Top crust with ½ of sauce. Sprinkle with most of parmesan leaving a little to sprinkle on top when pizza is served.

Top with pepperoni, peppers and onions. Add sausage.

Sprinkle on mozzarella. Throw on pepperoncini.

Place pizza into preheated oven directly on top oven rack. Bake about 10 – 20 minutes until as golden as you like. Take out and let rest for about 5 minutes. Slice and serve with more chile flakes and the extra parmesan.


Feel free to use whatever crust you prefer, but adjust bake times accordingly.

Don’t want your pizza too spicy? Cut the chili flakes in half. Want basil instead of parsley? Just sub it in.
