3 cups flour
1 cup water- temp about 110-115 degrees
1 pkg yeast (disolved in the water)
pinch of salt
mix above ingredients for dough and knead for at least 10 minutes-minimum, set aside and let rise for appox 2 hours.
1 large onion & 1/2-1 green pepper (cut in strips)
1 12 oz can diced tomatoes
1 small can tomato paste

Saute onions and green peppers in small amount of olive oil until softened. Add diced tomatoes and simmer for 1/2 hour. Then add the tomato puree and tomato paste and simmer for another 1/2 hour. Set aside.

When dough has risen (about double bulk or more), then spread out in a large jelly roll pan (cookie sheet with sides) which has been greased with crisco. Spread the sauce onto the dough, then top with the mushrooms, pepperoni and lastly the shredded cheese.
Bake at 375 degrees (mid oven) for approx 1/2 hour or so. Slice into squares and serve.
