Homemade Pizza From Scratch


I feel like pizza can save most problems.  Sound crazy?  Perhaps.  However, I speak from experience.  Whether I’m feeling happy or sad, I almost always want pizza.  It highlights celebrations, makes a simple Friday in feel more special, or lifts me out of a blue mood with each cheesy bite so for me, it’s a necessary staple in our house.  Recently, I discovered that I could assemble homemade pizzas in bulk and store them in my freezer  to enjoy at a moments notice the next time a craving would strike.  I can’t tell you how awesome and convenient this has been.  The topping possibilities are endless and you can get really creative with them too.

Prep time

Cook time

Total time


Serves: 1 10″ Pizza*

  • 1 ts yeast + ⅔ c warm water {at about 110-120*}
  • 1½ c unbleached flour
  • ½ ts fine salt
  • 1 ts sugar
  • 1 tb oil
Tomato Sauce
  • 2 tb olive oil

  • Salt and Pepper
  • Parmigiana bones {optional}
Desired Toppings

    1. Stir the yeast with the water and set aside,
    2. Using either your hands or a mixer, knead everything together. It is ready when the surface is smooth and the dough comes together.
    3. Cover in a greased bowl for an hour or until it doubles in size. Make sure to place in a dark/undisturbed place.
    4. Press the dough out onto silpat/parchment then cover and rest for 1-2 hours. This will further develop the flavor of the dough.
    5. Finally, lightly flour and roll out the dough to your desired thickness. Par-bake at 450* for 8-10 minutes.
    6. Top with toppings of choice then finish baking for 10-15 more minutes

    Size depends on how thin or thick you like/roll out your dough.
