Who needs delivery when you can make your own pizza in the comfort of your own home? The best part about making your own pizza is that you can control what ingredients you use, and you can have as little or as much of it as you want!
The key to really good pizza is, of course, the crust, and a delicious combination of your favorite ingredients. It’s also a lot cheaper than I originally thought it would be to make my own. At the local ShopRite, I bought two 16 oz pizza dough for $1.79 each, tomato sauce, tomato, basil, and avocado and the total was a lot less than a large pizza. Just for fun, we made one white and one whole wheat pizza… and we had lots of leftovers and extra money to spend on a bottle of wine! Check out how we made it below:
- Fresh bake shop pizza dough
- Your favorite cheese (or no cheese)
- Pasta sauce
- A bottle of red wine (or your favorite beverage 😉
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Roll out the dough on a bed of flour. As you can see, we didn’t make it perfectly like the typical round pizza, but it came out just as delicious, flatbread style.
Spoon a few tablespoons of sauce into the center of the pizza and use the back of a spoon to spread it out. Add the cheese, and all of your favorite ingredients!
The ingredients and directions are for the pizza on the left. We made two individual pizzas. One with white dough and the other with whole wheat dough. I found that the whole wheat dough came out better – soft and chewy on the inside and crisp on the outside.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until the crust is crisp and golden brown at the edges, and the cheese and ingredients are melted on the top. 🙂
