Refrigerated pizza dough and a microwave sauce make home-made pizza quick work.


1/2 cup onion chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
1 (13-ounce) can refrigerated pizza dough
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
2 ounces pepperoni


  1.  Preheat oven to 400F.
  2.  Combine onion, garlic and oil in a 4-cup glass measuring cup. Microwave at HIGH 30 to 40 seconds. Add tomato sauce and oregano; microwave 2 1/2 minutes. Stir in salt and pepper. Remember to use hot mitts when removing cup from microwave.
  3.  Divide dough into 4 pieces. Flatten each to a 6-inch circle and place on a large baking sheet. Spread sauce on dough; sprinkle with mozzarella and top with pepperoni. Bake 10 minutes or until bubbling. Serves 4.
