Homemade Pizza

The person who invented deserves a big high five. is delicious, and the options are endless! Taco is one of my favorites, but today we will be making the classic pepperoni .

Pizza Dough


  • 2 1/2 tsp yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups of warm water
  • 3 1/2 cups of flour
  • Pizza sauce
  • Cheese
  • Toppings

Combine the yeast, sugar, and water in a large bowl or standing mixer to activate for about 10 minutes. Add the flour. Use the dough hook attachment to knead the dough for several minutes (5-8) until the dough comes together in a ball. Add more flour if the dough is too sticky. Transfer the dough to a large bowl, coated in oil, and roll the ball around to coat in oil. Cover the bowl with a damp cloth and place in a warm spot for an hour to rise.

At this point I took off a small chunk of dough for a dessert pizza. I rolled the large portion out on our baking stone and the small portion out on a cookie sheet. Stick the rolled out pizza crust in the 415* oven for 7 minutes. Remove and top as you please.

For the dessert pizza I spread melted butter on the entire surface, sprinkled some cinnamon sugar, and baked for about 10 more minutes. When the baking was complete, I drizzled a glazed of a 1/4 cup of powdered sugar and 2 tsp of milk.

The large pizza had sauce, cheese, pepperoni, and olives (only on the pieces for Justin and me). I spread butter on the edges of the crust and lightly sprinkled garlic powder on the butter. I baked this one for an additional 15 minutes.
