How to Make homemade pizza


  1. Dissolve yeast in 1 cup of warm water. Stir in 1 tablespoon olive oil, sugar, and flour to make dough. Place in greased bowl, cover and set aside.
  2. Combine tomato paste, 1/2 cup water, garlic powder, Italian seasonings, and remaining oil in a small saucepan and simmer 5 minutes.
  3. Brown meat with black pepper and crushed red pepper in a skillet. Drain off fat. Add bell pepper and onion.
  4. Grease a 17" x 14" baking sheet or pizza pan. My wife usually greases pan with olive oil. It will make the crust more soft. Press dough onto sheet. Spread sauce, meat mixture and cheese over dough. Bake at 425 degrees for 20 mi utes or until dough and cheeze are golden brown.
  5. Cut into 12 pieces.
