Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Pizza Dough (1 pckg)
into a rectangle onto a lined baking sheet. Cut an award ribbon out of the dough. I used a large bowl as my guide and just cut two ribbons below the circle. If it is easier for you, you can bake the entire crust until it’s golden brown, remove it from the oven, then cut out your shape.
Bake crust until it's golden brown, 8-10 minutes.
Pizza Sauce (1/2 cup)
on the crust. Spread
Shredded Mozzarella Cheese (2 2/3 cups)
on the crust, being sure the center of the circle is really loaded. You don’t want to see the sauce in the center area of the circle.
Pepperoni Slices (36 slices)
in half. Arrange the halves around the edge of the circle and the long rectangular areas. You want the entire area of the ribbon to be covered. Use a knife to cut "#1 DAD" out of pepperoni slices.
Bake until the cheese is melted and bubbly, about 8-10 minutes.
Lift the parchment paper and the pizza up off the baking sheet. Slide the pizza onto a large cutting board or serving platter. Serve immediately.
