Homemade Pizza

Printable Recipe
~1 large pizza or 6 small

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 T yeast
  • 2 T vegetable oil
  • 2 T sugar
  • 1 t Italian seasoning
  • 1 t salt
  • 2 1/3-3 cups flour
  • pizza sauce
  • mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • cheddar cheese, shredded
  • your choice of toppings
Cooking Directions
  1. Stir sugar into water, add yeast and proof for 10 minutes.
  2. Stir in salt, seasoning and oil.
  3. Add about 2 cups flour and mix, forming a small ball.
  4. Add flour as needed and knead until smooth and elastic--about 10 minutes. (I put it in my mixer with a dough hook.)
  5. Place dough in a greased bowl and let rise until doubled--about 45 minutes.
  6. Roll it out and top with sauce, cheeses and toppings.
  7. It will make 1 normal size pizza or about 6 smaller ones.
  8. Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes.
Holly's Note:
My boys like making their own individual pizzas. You can also do calzones instead of pizzas. Bake for about 25-30 minutes.
