When the meat is done, remove it from the pot and save the juices from the slow cooker.  Shred the Italian beef with a fork and set it aside to cool slightly.

 

unrolled pizza dough

 

Preheat your oven to 400° F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.   Open and unroll the pizza dough on a lightly floured surface such as a pastry mat, large cutting board, or your countertop.   Then use a rolling pin roll it out until it’s around 1/8 inch thick.
