  6. Repeat the layers one more time, except the pepperoni.
  7. Repeat the layer one final time, but you should be out of ricotta cheese.
  8. Top the pizza lasagna with the last layer of cheese, then add a final layer of pepperoni, the chopped peppers, and the rest of the onion. You could also add other pizza toppings like banana peppers, bacon bits, mushrooms, etc.
  9. Bake at 350`F for 40 to 50 minutes. Cover with foil for about the first 20 minutes so the cheese doesn’t brown too fast.
  10. Remove from the oven and let the pizza lasagna cool for a couple minutes, then cut into squares and serve.

This pizza lasagna was gone in no time at our house, it was one of the biggest hits I’ve made lately! My son couldn’t wait to get home from school the next day so he could eat the leftovers!
