Pregnancy Pizza to Induce Labor

Once upon a time at a pizza restaurant in California, a woman walked into the restaurant and asked for a pizza that would put her into labor.  The manager, not knowing quite what to do, came up with a pizza to serve her.  It had everything under the sun loaded up on it and what do you know?  It actually worked.  Ever since then this restaurant, Skipolini’s Pizza, has been serving up this pizza to pregnant women who are hoping that it will have the same effect on them.

Perhaps this overloaded pizza may do more than just give you indigestion.  It might just kick start labor for you as well.  This is not the recipe that Skipolini’s uses but here are the ingredients you need to make our prego pizza.

Prego Pizza Recipe


1 lb loaf frozen bread dough, thawed
Jar of spaghetti sauce or pizza sauce
Mozzarella cheese, shredded
Parmesan cheese, grated
Green Peppers
Sausage (ground sausage, Italian sausage or both)
Ground Beef


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Roll thawed pizza dough into circle or square and place in pizza pan.

Brown ground beef and set aside.  Brown ground sausage and set aside. 

Top pizza with pizza sauce.  You can use as much or as little of the remaining ingredients as you like.  The more toppings the better though.  Then top pizza with about half the mozzarella cheese.  Sprinkle meat ingredients, then veggies, garlic, oregano, and parmesan.  Use the remaining mozzarella cheese to cover pizza.

Place pizza in oven and cook for about 25 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is lightly browned.
