Apply an even layer of pimento/mozzarella mixture to about 1/2” from the border of crust.

Evenly distribute pepperoni slices.

Evenly sprinkle second half of the grated cheese to the very border of the crust.

Bake for 10-15 minutes until your toppings are bubbling and the crust is golden brown.

Remove from oven, let rest a few minutes. Then cut, serve and enjoy.
