  6. Roll out your pizza dough on a lightly floured surface to your desired thickness.

  7. Spread the tomato sauce mixture evenly over the pizza dough, leaving a small border around the edges.

  8. Sprinkle 2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese over the top of the pizza.

  9. Arrange the sautéed bell peppers over the cheese.

  10. Bake the pizza in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly.

  11. Remove the pizza from the oven and allow it to cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
