Steps To Make Domino’s Pan Pizza 

1. Yeast Proofing

Begin with activating the yeast by mixing it with warm water, sugar, and active dry yeast. Make sure you use warm water but not hot. You will see the foam rise on the top of your yeast mixture once it is activated.

2. Dough Game

Further, take a bowl, and add flour, salt, and yeast mixture. Knead the dough until it is smooth and stretchy. Smother some oil all over the dough. Cover it with a lid and let it rest for 1 hour. This will help the dough rise in a pan. 

3. Pizza In Making

After a sound resting time of 2 hours, knead the dough again for 2-3 minutes. Divide into balls depending upon the size of pizza you want. Roll and spread around the dough in a round shape. Grease your skillet or pizza pan with oil all over. Leave no corners. It will help to get that fine and crispy crust. 

4. Finale 

Place the round pizza dough on a pan. Spread the marinara sauce and grated mozzarella cheese all over the pizza dough. Then place the sauteed mushroom slices and bell peppers on the top and add another layer of grated cheese.
