Indulge in the timeless comfort of homemade pizza with this simple yet versatile recipe. Whether you prefer classic margherita, loaded with toppings, or experimenting with unique flavor combinations, making pizza from scratch allows you to tailor every aspect to your liking.


1 lb (0.45 kg) pizza dough

1/2 cup of pizza sauce

1 1/2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese

Toppings of your choice (pepperoni, mushrooms, bell peppers, onions, olives, etc.)

Olive oil, for brushing

Cornmeal or flour, for dusting


Preheat your oven to 475°F (245°C) and place a pizza stone or baking sheet in the oven to heat. Roll out the pizza dough on a lightly floured surface to your desired thickness. Transfer the rolled-out dough to a piece of parchment paper dusted with cornmeal or flour. Spread the pizza sauce evenly over the dough, leaving a small border around the edges. Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese over the sauce, then add your chosen toppings. Brush the edges of the dough with olive oil for a golden crust. Carefully transfer the pizza (with the parchment paper) onto the preheated pizza stone or baking sheet in the oven. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is bubbly and melted. Remove from the oven and let the pizza cool for a few minutes before slicing.


Slice your homemade pizza into wedges and serve hot, straight from the oven. Pair with a crisp green salad or garlic knots for a complete meal. Whether enjoyed as a family dinner or a casual gathering with friends, homemade pizza always brings people together.

Making pizza at home is not only delicious but also a fun and rewarding culinary experience. Experiment with different toppings, crust thicknesses, and sauces to create your own signature pizza that will have everyone coming back for more.
