Here's a meal for two (or one hungry college kid) that can be ready in 30 minutes or less !
And better yet, all of the ingredients can be kept in the freezer or the pantry, ready for the midnight munchies.

This instructable is mirrored on the blog .

Step 1: Get These Things!

-bag of pizza dough from a bakery
-small can of pizza sauce
-2 cups of shredded mozzarella
-white flour
-olive oil

-medium/large pizza pan (or cookie sheet)
-small bowl
[Not Pictured]

Step 2: Preheat!

Use your finger to preheat the oven to 450°F(230°C).

Step 3: Flour!

Spread flour all over that pan. DO IT. DO IT OR YOUR PIZZA WILL DIE!

Oh yeah, and put some on your hands, too.

Step 4: Dough!

Slap the dough onto your pan. Make sure it's got a good coating of flour.

Step 5: Get Crusty!

Start flattening the dough into a disk(or a rectangle if you're using a cookie sheet). Push the extra to the edges to make the crust. 

Step 6: Get Crispy!

Brush the outer edges with olive oil. This will make the crust a bit more crisp once cooked.

Step 7: Sauce!

Pour about half of the jar onto the center of the dough. Then use a super-badass spinning sauce-spreading move to coat the whole damn thing!

Step 8: Cheese!

You like pizza. You like cheese. So hurry up and put the damn cheese on the pizza! Hurry up you're hungry and you're taking too longSTOP THAT'S TOO MUCH! Don't use all of the cheese. What the hell's wrong with you? All of the cheese is too much cheese! Save the rest for later.

Step 9: Bake It!

By now, the oven should be at 450°F. If it's not, congratulations! You prepare pizza like a racehorse. Now pop it in the oven for 20 minutes.

Are you just gonna wait there? Hell no! Now's the time to turn on the TV and munch on that leftover mozzarella. 

Step 10: Stuff Your Face Hole!

After 20 minutes, your delicious pizza should be golden brown and scalding hot, so carefully remove it from the oven and Blah Blah Blah JUST EAT THE DAMN PIZZA!

    Outstanding! I've worked in a pizzeria, and your addition of the "little things" lifts your creation miles above a freezer pizza: first, spending an extra buck or two and getting prepared dough. second, dust up your hands, and dough and the pan! flour is NOT expensive. third, brush up the edges with olive oil. and fourth, you don't need as much sauce or cheese as you think you do. OH, and perhaps most important, PRE-HEAT THE OVEN!....and don't rule out using pasta sauce, if that's what you have. i like the lumpy consistency of pasta sauce, and it's often lighter and less sweet.

    You're right about the pasta sauce. I use it when I'm making multiple pies because I can only find larger jars. It's great to know I have support from someone who's worked in the business!

    Because all of the ingredients can be kept ready in the freezer for a long time and because it makes for good clickbait.

    I've really only got one thing I'd like to add to this, and that is regarding the cooking temperature. I see that you've written it in Fahrenheit, but I think that adding the temperature in Celsius would be good as I believe there to be quite a few who does not use Fahrenheit as their unit for temperature measurement. 450°f is roughly 230°c.
