Sesame Ranch Crusted Peperoni Pizza

ranch pizza

It’s time for Friday night pizza again! And today we’re going with the good old stand-by, plain pepperoni and cheese. But not just any ordinary pepperoni and cheese, since the pizza was plain I wanted to really jazz up the crust. So for this crust, I added ranch seasonings and sesame seeds, and then a little melted butter after it came out of the oven.

I made the pizza with my favorite quick and easy pizza crust – Pillsbury pizza crust.  Using the canned dough makes the pizza come together in a snap. And the best part is, jazzing up this crust is so easy, your kids can easily help out with, or even make it themselves if they’re a little older.

I made a  big tossed salad to go along with this pizza packed with fresh spring greens, spinach, and peppers. It was such a nice, simple pizza to enjoy while watching movies. Later we had popcorn and hot chocolate – it was a great evening in!
