  • 1 loaf frozen bread dough See notes for other options
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup pepperoni slices
  • 10 black olives


  • Thaw frozen dough according to package instructions.
  • Move the oven rack to the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • Grease a 10 1/2 x 15 1/2 cookie sheet (half sheet baking sheet).
  • Spread dough out to make pizza crust.
  • Spread pizza sauce over the crust.
  • Sprinkle cheese over pizza sauce. Be generous!
  • Arrange sliced olives in the top left corner to create the "stars" section of the pizza.
  • Arrange pepperoni to make "stripes" on the flag. See note about options for making the stripes.
  • Bake the pizza for 15-20 minutes. Watch for the crust to be golden brown, and the cheese to be completely melted.


  • Instead of pepperoni, you can use Canadian bacon or regular bacon. You can also use sliced red peppers for vegetarian pizza.
  • Sliced mushrooms can be added to the "white stripes" if you'd like.
  • Instead of using olives sliced blue potatoes can be used.
  • Using frozen bread dough is my favorite because it's really easy. I like the Rhodes brand. 
  • Pizza dough in a can, such as Pillsbury, works great.
  • Making homemade pizza crust is a great option too.
  • Sometimes pizzerias sell pizza dough, or you can find it in some grocery stores in the refrigerator section.
  • Let the dough rest for a few minutes before trying to shape it into crust.
