How to Make Homemade Everyday Pizza


  • 1In a medium bowl, dissolve yeast in the warm water. Sprinkle a scant amount of sugar over the top to help the yeast bloom.
  • 2While 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.
  • 3Let the dough rest for at LEAST five minutes.
  • 4Preheat oven to 425°.
  • 5While the dough is resting, make your sauce by mixing all the ingredients together in a small bowl.
  • 6Prepare toppings of your choosing.
  • 7Now 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.
  • 8Now add the sauce and your desired toppings, pop in the oven for 20 – 25 minutes.
  • 9Let cool for about 5 minutes. Enjoy!
