I love to make individual pizzas. They are just so much fun to prepare and eat, especially for little ones. But for the most part, my experience has been making them with split English muffins. Those are pretty good, but they do not taste like pizza crust. I also like the refrigerated pizza crust you get in a tube that you just unroll and bake. However, I thought it needed a little something. So I came up with my recipe for Easy Homemade Pizzas with Premade Dough. This is the traditional refrigerated dough that I infused with butter and herbs for more of a pizzeria flavoring.

As you can see from the above image, the herb-infused butter is spread all over the top of the rolled-out pizza dough. Then I started rolling up the dough on the short side to form a long roll. After that, I cut this into 12 equal pieces. These pieces were placed on a parchment-lined baking sheet and smashed down with the palm of my hand to form about a 4″ wide disk. I like to bake these for about 5 minutes at 425 degrees to start the baking process before the pizza sauce and toppings are added. This process just ensures that the dough gets done.

This recipe uses the refrigerated pizza dough infused with butter and herbs. I like to prebake the crusts for 5 minutes before adding the sauce and toppings.

  • 13.8 ounces refrigerated pizza dough
  • 4 tablespoons butter, very soft
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 7 ounces pizza sauce
  • 12 slices pepperoni
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (mozzarella, colby-jack or cheddar works well)
  • 4 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 8 ounces sausage (breakfast or Italian)
  1. Incorporate the garlic and Italian seasoning into the butter. Unroll the pizza crust onto a working surface and press out into a 9 x 14 rectangle. Spread the soft butter over the entire surface of pizza crust.

  2. Working with the short side, begin to roll the crust into a long cylinder. Using a sharp knife, cut into 12 equal pieces and place onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Using the palm of your hand, press each into a 4" round circle. Prebake in a 425 degree preheated oven for 5 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, cook the sausage into crumbles in a skillet. Toward the end of cooking, add the pepperoni to the sausage for a minute or two to remove some of the grease from the pepperoni.

  4. Remove the crusts from the oven and carefully spoon some sauce over each pizza crust.

  5. You can add the rest of the ingredients in any order you wish. I like to add the pepperoni, cheese, mushrooms and sausage in that order.

  6. Finish baking in a 425 preheated oven for 12-14 minutes.
