1. Roll out thawed, raised bread dough (To speed process, heat oven to 200 degrees then turn off oven and place bread dough on oven safe plates to rise.) 
2. Using rolling pin, stretch one dough loaf to fit one greased cookie sheet. 
3. In saucepan, combine paste, tomato sauce, garlic powder, sugar, water, and Italian seasoning. Let simmer 10 minutes. 
4. Spread 1/2 to 3/4 cup sauce over dough to cover all but edges. 
5. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, mozzarella then cheddar cheese. 
6. Bake one pan at a time in 400 degree oven on bottom rack for 12 to 14 minutes or until bottom of crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.

Homemade pizza is truly a special treat. It is so fun rolling out the dough and adding toppings. Children love getting in on the action.
