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!

For a more charred effects, turn the broiler on to cook for 1 minute or less.
