Makes 2 (12-inch) pizzas

4 to 4-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
2 envelopes FLEISCHMANN’S RapidRise Yeast
1/4 cup thinly sliced pepperoni
1/4 cup finely chopped green onion
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon fennel seed (optional)
1 cup water
3/4 cup prepared salsa
2 tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil

In large bowl, combine 4 cups flour, 1 cup cheese, undissolved yeast, pepperoni, onion, salt, oregano, and fennel seed. Heat water, salsa and oil until very warm (120 to 130oF). Stir in warm liquids into flour mixture. Stir batter vigorously, until it forms a soft ball. Turn out onto floured surface. Knead in enough remaining flour until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.With lightly oiled hands, divide dough in half. Roll and stretch each to a 13-inch circle. Place on 2 (12-inch) greased round pizza pans. Cover; let rise 15 to 20 minutes. Sprinkle tops with remaining cheese.

Bake at 400oF for 15 minutes or until crust is brown. Serve immediately.
