Supreme Pizza

It's a true supreme pizza: bacon, pepperoni slices, red and green bell pepper, red onion, black olives, mozzarella, Parmesan, and basil. Our Test Kitchen calls it an "old-school supreme pizza [like] one would get at Pizza Hut, Shaky's, or a classic pizzeria." The olives and peppers are classic additions that give the pizza a strong nostalgia factor. It's so easy to make at home, and you probably have a few of the ingredients already on hand.


  • 1 lb. fresh prepared pizza dough

  • 1 cup marinara (such as Rao's)

  • 2 oz. Canadian bacon slices (about 3 slices), quartered

  • 1 oz. pepperoni slices (about 15 slices)

  • 1 small (3 to 4 oz.) red bell pepper, cut into 1/4-in.-thick rounds (about 1/2 cup)

  • 1 small (3 to 4 oz.) green bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch-thick rounds (about 1/2 cup)

  • 1 small (3 to 4 oz.) red onion, cut into 1/4-in.-thick rounds (about 1/2 cup)

  • 1 (2 1/4-oz.) can sliced black olives, drained

  • 6 oz. low-moisture part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded (about 1 1/2 cups)
