  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Combine flour, garlic powder, and black pepper in a medium bowl. Add yogurt; stir well with a wooden spoon until just combined and then keep mixing dough in bowl with your hands until smooth (about 2 minutes of kneading).
  2. Spray a 10-inch cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet with cooking spray. Roll dough into 1-tablespoon balls and arrange in a single layer in pan (it’s ok if there are some open spaces in pan). Spoon marinara sauce evenly over dough balls. Sprinkle about two-thirds of cheese over dough balls. Top with olives and pepperoni and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
