Sheet Pan Pizza | Nik Snacks

Easy to make and freeze, this sheet pan pizza has a thin crust accented with olive oil and topped with a scant amount of tomato sauce, shredded Parmesan and razor thin slices of the spiciest pepperoni.
I'm completely obsessed with pizza. It's by far my favorite food. I cant and won't ever turn it down. Pizza is life and I even wear it around my neck. See?


Pizza is my boyfriend's favorite food too (he's the one who gifted me the pizza jewelry). When we first started dating, we'd bond over making pizza dough and discuss techniques on how to make it better. As a matter of fact, he has more knowledge about pizza than anyone I know. He is so skilled, that he can take frozen store-bought pizza and turn it into something edible that makes you forget it was once wrapped in plastic.


I don't possess that level of culinary genius, but I do have this pizza dough recipe. Ovee the course of TWO YEARS, we made and taste-tested (I mean, ate with reckless abandon) over 160 pizzas in order to make sure this recipe was solid. It's our go-to. It's our baseline. It's what is always in the freezer for when the urge to have pizza strikes.


Personally, I like the sheet pan pizza because it brings back memories of making pizza with my mom when I was little.


The thin crust accented with olive oil and topped with a scant amount of tomato sauce, shredded Parmesan and razor thin slices of the spiciest pepperoni and fresh jalapeño rings makes me happiest. Hopefully this dough will make you happy too!

  1. Question - will the foil help the crust get crispier? Or is it more for easy cleanup?

    1. Mostly for cleanup but would also assist with removing pizza from pan for cleaner slicing.

    2. Oh,it's 100% for easy clean up. If you have a teflon or non-stick/copper sheet pan, no need for it.
