2. Spray 2 baking sheets with non-stick cooking spray.
3. Divide the dough into 4 equal pieces, and using your hands spread the dough to the size of a salad plate, (Put 2 Personal Pizzas on each baking sheet).
4. Spread each pizza with 3 tablespoons of pizza sauce, then sprinkle on 3 tablespoons of grated mozzarella cheese. Add pepperoni slices.

6. Bake the pizzas in the oven for 12-14 minutes. You Did It! Yum!

Pizza Dough
2 teaspoons yeast
2 teaspoons sugar
2/3 cup warm water
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour

1. In a large size bowl dissolve the yeast, sugar in warm water.
2. Use a wooden spoon to gently stir the mixture a couple of times and let sit for 3-5 minutes.
3. Add salt, olive oil, and flour, and wheat flour. Using a wooden spoon stir until a soft dough ball forms.
4. Turn out onto a lightly floured cutting board and knead for 10 minutes. Knead the dough by using the palm of your right hand to push the dough down, and your left hand to keep the dough in place, (add small amounts (add small amounts of flour if the dough sticks to the cutting board or your hands).
5. Place dough in lightly greased bowl, brush the top and sides of the dough with olive oil, and cover with plastic wrap.
6. Set the bowl on the countertop and let the dough rise 1 1/2 to 2 hours, until double in size.

Dough may be made ahead and kept in the refrigerator up to 48 hours. Before baking, take dough out of refrigerator and let dough come back to room temperature, (about 2-3 hours).
