A great school pizza must be baked in a pot or tray with high edges (so the cheese and toppings drip over the side while cooking). Cooking the pizza this way is essential to getting a crispy crust – one of the key features of a classic school pizza. One of the key features of a classic school pizza is that there is very little visible crust on the outside. To achieve an authentic look, spread the sauce and toppings all the way to the edge of the crust.


  • 2 TBS Tomato Paste
  • ¼ tsp Garlic Powder
  • ½ tsp Sugar
  • 1 TBS Italian Seasoning
  • 1lb Pizza Dough
  • 1 8oz Can Tomato Sauce
  • Pinch of Black Pepper
  • Olive Oil
  • Cornmeal/Semolina Flour for Preparing The Pan
  • ¼ tsp Onion Powder

Toppings: Cooked ground beef or sausage, pepperoni, cooked onions or mushrooms, cooked bell peppers.

  • 1lb Cooked Ground Sausage
  • 1 8oz Bag of Mozzarella Cheese (Shredded)


Step 1

The first step is to preheat the oven to 425F.

Step 2

Brush a baking sheet with a little olive oil and sprinkle with a little cornmeal or semolina flour. Use your fingertips to press the dough into the baking sheet, keeping the dough even in thickness all the way to the edge.

Step 3

Coat the top of the dough with olive oil and use a fork to create pricks all over. Bake for 5-7 minutes. If bubbles start to form during baking, reach for them with a fork and poke them to let the gas escape.

Step 4

Mix bowl together the tomato sauce, tomato paste, italian seasoning, garlic powder, black pepper, onion powder, and sugar.

Step 5

Spread the sauce on the pre-baked crust, all the way to the edge. Add meat, vegetables, pepperoni, or any other desired toppings. Add a generous layer of mozzarella cheese on top.

Step 6

To recreate the look of a school pizza, let the toppings and cheese go all the way to the edge of the crust.

Step 7

Bake for 8-10 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Use a pizza cutter to cut into rectangles and serve this delicious school pizza on the table.

«Mm-mmm!» The entire student body waited in line for hours every day just to get a slice of that delicious, cheese-covered pie. It was heavenly. It is by far favorite food to eat in a high school cafeteria.
