Homemade Pizza

So after my first attempt at what I like to call Cheater Pizza (made with pre-made dough), I finally bring you a pizza using homemade dough!

I selected an easy freezer-friendly dough recipe that I had been eyeing up from Money Saving Mom.  While I didn’t freeze this dough, I did want to test this particular dough because I think making your own dough and storing it for a day you NEED pizza is a wonderful idea.  However – the dough recipe moved along FAST and the work was minimal. Yum!

To make my pizza, I use a nonstick metal pizza pan (the type with holes on the bottom – mine was inexpensive at ALDI).  The dough I used allows regular or weight flour to be used, so I used about half of each in the recipe.  I really liked how the dough stretched out to fit the entire pan, instead of fighting with it over and over.  One batch will make two pizzas.

I par-baked my crust because I HATE dough-y crust.  After about 5-7 minutes, I pulled the dough out of the oven and topped with marinara, mozzarella, pepperoni, and pineapple (no one likes pineapple but me!  Haters!).  Next time, I will brust the outer crust with olive oil, add some more sugar to the dough, and maybe also add some italian seasonings to the dough as well.  One day, I will perfect this!

  1. That looks so good! My future mother in law made us homemade pizza while we visited in NY. I don’t eat crust but that entire pizza was delish. I hope you have a great weekend.
