Quick and Easy Pizza Recipe with Mezzetta!

This post was sponsored by Mezzetta.


Finals week is fast approaching and I just don’t have time to make anything special for dinner when I get home from studying all day. I still wanted to incorporate some of my favorite meals into my menu plan, so I decided to create a quick and easy pizza recipe with Mezzetta products.


When I say quick and easy, I really mean QUICK and EASY. Everything is store-bought from the pizza dough and sauce to the cheese and toppings. This recipe took me a total of 10 minutes to make and it was really tasty too! When I make homemade pizza it usually takes me around 2 hours because you have to let the dough rise but I just don’t have time for that during these next couple of weeks.

Don’t get me wrong, I do love making homemade pizza though because it brings back memories of my mom making it for us when we were younger. We’d come home from school with an appetite and there would be so much homemade pizza on the countertop waiting for us to enjoy it! During Winter break when we’d be home from school all day my mom would make it for us because she knew it was our absolute favorite treat.


I decided to make a super quick version of it using these simple ingredients. I loved using the Mezzetta toppings on my pizza because it adds a level of dimension and flavor that I really enjoy. For my toppings I chose one of my mom’s favorites: banana peppers and olives. These toppings from Mezzetta are so delicious and made a great pair on my pizza.


I first cooked the store-bought dough half-way topped with a little bit of olive oil and then topped it with sauce, banana peppers, olives, cheese and black pepper. It was so delicious and didn’t last 5 minutes in my kitchen! This quick and easy pizza recipe is perfect when you’re short on time however because I incorporated my mom’s favorite toppings, it reminds me of my childhood coming home to pizza like this.
