How to Make Homemade Everyday Pizza


  1. In a medium bowl, dissolve yeast in the warm water. Sprinkle a scant amount of sugar over the top to help the yeast bloom.
  2. While this is happening, gather together the other ingredients and put in the same bowl. Stir vigorously with a sturdy spoon 20 times. If the dough gets too thick, get your hands in there and do some mix/kneading for about half a minute.
  3. Let the dough rest for at LEAST five minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 425°.
  5. While the dough is resting, make your sauce by mixing all the ingredients together in a small bowl.
  6. Prepare toppings of your choosing.
  7. Now that your dough has rested for a bit, shape on a greased 15” pizza round, or pat into a greased 9 x 13” pan. I like fluting my edges, similar to a pie crust, just so I have a kind of “handle” to hold my pizza in my hands.
  8. Now add the sauce and your desired toppings, pop in the oven for 20 – 25 minutes.
  9. Let cool for about 5 minutes. Enjoy!
