Supreme Pizza is typically a pizza for meat lovers - topped with pizza sauce, mushrooms, green bell peppers, onions, black olives, pepperoni, Italian sausage, and lots of mozzarella cheese.
You can definitely follow the cooking instructions below to make a traditional supreme pizza, but this recipe will help you make a unique supreme pizza that will knock your socks off. It is still a meat lovers pizza, and it is so delicious. (Though honestly, both ways will make delicious pizzas!)
This pizza recipe comes from my husband’s friend, who used to be a chef at a local restaurant, and he has shared some fantastic recipes with us. Besides this pizza recipe, he has also shared his Buffalo Chicken Pizza recipe with us. When you bite into that pizza, it tastes just like you are biting into a chicken wing!
You will love making your own pizza at home - and for the veggie lovers out there, you can make this recipe using veggie sausage or just leave it out! Be sure to check out my appetizers to serve with pizza post for an epic pizza night.
Ingredients Needed to Make This Supreme Pizza Recipe
To make this unique supreme pizza, you will need the following ingredients:
- Pre-Made Pizza Dough - You can buy it at your local grocery store or make your own. (I buy mine at a local pizzeria.)
- Yellow Mustard
- Smoked Polish Sausage - I urge you to try the Polish sausage. It really complements the mustard and onions. If you really don't like it, you can try ham or Canadian bacon instead.
- Olive Oil
- Onion - You can use yellow onions (or red onions if you want the onion to be a little sweeter.)
- Bell Peppers - Two different colors make it more colorful, so I use one red bell pepper and then either one yellow bell pepper or one green bell pepper.
- Asiago Cheese - Freshly grated if possible.
- Whole Milk Mozzarella Cheese - Freshly grated if possible.
- Optional: Parmesan Cheese & Red Pepper Flakes for serving.
When buying your ingredients for the pizza, make sure you buy the smoked Polish sausage since there are two different kinds of Polish sausage, fresh and smoked. (The funny thing is that I really don’t like smoked Polish sausage, but I love it on this pizza. It must be the mixture of all the ingredients together that makes it so good.)

How to Make Homemade Supreme Pizza
Are you a pizza lover looking to make the ultimate supreme pizza at home? This step-by-step guide will help you make a delicious supreme pizza that will impress your friends and family. Following these directions will make one large pizza, but this recipe can easily be doubled to make two pizzas.
First, take the pizza dough out of the refrigerator and let it sit on the counter to warm up a little while you prepare the toppings. If the dough is warmed up a little, it will be easier to stretch out into your pan.
Preheat your oven to 450°F and oil your pizza stone or baking pan. Greasing your pan prevents the pizza from sticking.
Next, cook the sausage. The sausage is already cooked, so you are just warming it up for the pizza. I would suggest slicing the sausage link into slices and sautéing it in a skillet until the outside has a nice sear on it.
While the sausage is cooking, thinly slice two bell peppers (I like using red peppers, green peppers, or yellow peppers) and an onion. I use my mandolin slicer to cut them nice and thin and uniform in size.
You can remove the sausage from the skillet and set it aside, then sauté the peppers and onion in a tablespoon of olive oil in the same skillet. Heat them until they are soft and tender, stirring occasionally.
While the veggies cook, grate the cheeses. Using fresh, real cheese is essential to a good pizza because it melts so much better than the stuff in the bags.
Now that you have all the toppings ready to go, you can put the pizza together and bake it.
Stretch out the pizza dough into your pizza or baking pan. I don't use a rolling pin. I just work the dough with my hands to stretch it out to the edges of my pan. Place it in the preheated oven and par-bake it for 7 minutes.
Par-baking the pizza dough is good to do to make sure the pizza dough is cooked all the way through. Especially when it is a heavy-topping pizza like this one.
After the pizza dough has been par-baked, remove it from the oven and spread out the mustard evenly over the dough. This will be your pizza "sauce."
Next, place the peppers and onion over the mustard, making sure they are also spread out evenly.
Add the sausage to the pizza. Space the slices out evenly.
Sprinkle the asiago cheese and mozzarella cheese over the pizza. Bake for 8 minutes. The pizza is done when the cheese is melted and the crust edges are slightly browned.
Let the pizza cool for a few minutes before cutting it - it gives the cheese a little time to become a little more solid so it doesn't melt everywhere when you cut it. (I've learned this lesson in patience too many times.)
Place pizza on something safe to cut on, then cut it into even slices.
How to Store Leftover Pizza
Once cooled, store any leftover pizza in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
How to Reheat Leftover Pizza
There are a few ways to reheat pizza. We love to use our air fryer to reheat leftover pizza. You can also use a toaster oven or just eat it cold. My in-law's favorite trick is to microwave the pizza for about 30 seconds to melt the cheese, then put the pizza in a hot pan on the stove to get the bottom nice and crispy again.
- Use yellow mustard for this recipe. The yellow mustard flavor goes best with the other pizza toppings.
- Take the pizza dough out to sit on the counter to warm up a little. Warmer dough will be easier to stretch out into your pan.
- Oil the pan so that the pizza will come out of the pan easier.
- A baking pan, like a cookie sheet, will work if you do not have a pizza pan.
- Par-baking the pizza dough will help make sure the dough is cooked all the way through, especially with it being a heavier topping pizza.
- Before cooking the sausage, slice the link into round slices.
