Step 3 –Evenly press the pizza dough onto the baking sheet.

Step 4 –Evenly add the pizza sauce to the top of the pizza dough.

Step 5 –If you’re making a cheese-only pizza, evenly sprinkle all of the mozzarella cheese on top of the pizza sauce.

Step 6 –If you’re making a pizza with other toppings, layer only 1/2 of the mozzarella cheese on top of the pizza sauce. Top the mozzarella layer with your preferred toppings and then add the remaining mozzarella on top of them.

Step 7 –Transfer the pizza to the oven and bake until golden-brown and bubbly, about 15 minutes.

Step 8 –Transfer the pizza to a wire rack and let it cool, about 3-5 minutes.

Step 9 –Slice and serve.
