Divide dough in half. On lightly greased 12″ pizza pans sprinkled with a light coating of cornmeal, pat each half of dough out into a 10 to 12-inch circle on pizza pans.
Divide sauce evenly between Pizza Crusts and spread out.
Sprinkle each pizza with 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan Cheese. Sprinkle each pizza with 2 tsp. dried Oregano Leaves.

Saute’ sausage until almost done, stirring to break up. Add the peppers, onions, mushrooms, olives, and pepperoni and continue cooking until sausage is completely done.
Dump the skillet full of cooked toppings in a colander to drain. Drain very well.
Sprinkle toppings evenly onto the tops of pizzas. Sprinkle 1 cup shredded Mozzarella Cheese on each of the pizzas.
Bake 20 to 25 minutes on the lower rack of the oven at 425 degrees until the crust is brown and the filling is hot and bubbly.
