Homemade pizza has always been intimidating, and often unneeded when there are so many various pizza joints. Once I tried and perfected this dough, homemade pizza has never been the same. The sauce is super simple, giving it an authentic Italian meal. Often I gift “Pizza Kits” to friends to make a pie of their own at home. Have fun with your favorite toppings, and enjoy a night in! Prego!

    • Drizzle some olive oil in the mixing bowl, and place the dough to rise for an hour.
    • Divide either into half or 4 smaller balls and flatten with fingers to create air bubbles on a either a pizza stone or cooking sheet.
    • Add some olive oil to the crust, followed with sauce, and bake for 10 minutes before adding cheese. If adding meat toppings, do so before adding cheese- bake for another two to three minutes with your favorite veggie toppings. For a more charred effects, turn the broiler on to cook for 1 minute or less.
