1/2 Cup pizza sauce
1 Tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

On a clean surface, form pizza dough to shape of Crock-Pot® slow cooker stoneware. Place in the Crock-Pot® slow cooker and spread out evenly. Cook crust on HIGH, uncovered, for ½ to 1 hour (without toppings).

Next, spread a thin layer of sauce over the crust. Add mozzarella slices over the dough. Be sure to overlap slices, in circular pattern until fully covered. If preparing pepperoni pizza, add a layer of pepperoni and then sprinkle with the Parmesan; or if preparing Margarita pizza, sprinkle with sliced Basil.
