Homemade Pizza

If you have always wanted to make your own homemade pizza from scratch, this is the recipe to try! I got the dough recipe off of the internet and it is the best I have used. It is a mixture of both white all-purpose flour and whole wheat flour. It tastes so good that you forget you are eating a healthier crust. I have tried making pizza using only whole wheat flour. It seemed to easily dry out and taste a bit "papery", if that makes sense. So, the combo of the wheat and white flour seem to work really well together. The whole process of making the dough from start to finish takes less than 1/2 an hour. 




Prep time: 30 min

Cook time: 20-25 min

Serves: 4-6

You Will Need The Following For This Homemade Pizza Recipe:


Tip: Use WARM water. If the water is too hot, it will kill off the yeast!

Dough

  • 1 tsp. Sugar
  • 1 1/2 c. white all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 c. wheat flour
  • 1 packet of dry yeast
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 T. vegetable oil
  • 1 c. warm water


Toppings 

Choose any of your favorites! For this recipe I used the following:

  • Pizza sauce
  • Mozzarella Cheese
  • Pepperoni
  • Sliced Onions
  • Sliced Habaneros
  • Mushrooms.






Preparation

To prepare this dish, start by dissolving the sugar in the water in a large bowl. Then, add the yeast and let stand for about 10 min. Once 10 minutes have passed, add the oil into the yeast mixture and stir. 



In another bowl, mix the white all-purpose flour, wheat flour and salt. Stir in 1/2 of this mixture into the yeast mixture. Add the rest of the dough slowly  mixing a little at a time until all the dough is all mixed in. At this point, it should be a sticky ball.




Note: The dough may seem flakey, but it will come together as you knead it!

Knead the dough for about 5 minutes. You can either divide the dough in half to form 2 smaller pizza's or keep it as one for a larger pizza like I did. 

I never used a mixer to make the dough & just kneaded the dough the old fashioned way. So, not sure what the process would be for using an electronic mixer.

Cover with wax paper and let it rise for about 10 minutes. Then, roll out the dough to form the pizza!

You will then need to lightly oil either a cookie sheet (like I did) or a round pizza stone if you have one. Since I do not have one, I used a cookie sheet and it works just as good!
