Easy Pizza Dough Recipe anyone can make.  Who wants to learn how to make their own pizza dough? We really don’t want to run to get pizza if we can make it at home! I think most of us have some sort of tomato sauce, tomato paste, pizza sauce or spaghetti sauce. All we have to do is add a little Italian Seasoning to the tomato base and we are good to go. I try to stock one or two small bags of sliced pepperoni in the freezer for when I want to make a pizza and for a certain salad I make. I really like knowing what is in my pizza dough…..

I use the following items from my pantry or freezer to make a pizza (the toppings are all optional items)

Pizza Dough and Toppings

1. flour, SAF yeast, salt, water and olive oil for the dough

2. tomato sauce, pizza sauce or spaghetti sauce

3. pepperoni

4. freeze-dried onions (reconstituted)

5. freeze-dried mushrooms (reconstituted)

6. freeze-dried bell peppers (reconstituted)

7. freeze-dried sausage (freezer-then reconstituted)

8. cheese: freshly grated, frozen, freeze-dried (reconstituted)

9. freeze-dried chicken (reconstituted) I use my favorite barbecue sauce with the chicken

10. dehydrated cilantro

11. dehydrated tomatoes (put under the sauce before adding cheese)

12. bacon-freezer

13. anything fresh from the garden if in season-basil for sure

14. pineapple

15. olives

  • ¾ cup warm water
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place all the ingredients except the pizza sauce, cheese, etc. into a bread mixer. Add more flour if needed to make the dough pull away from the sides of the mixing bowl. Cover the dough with greased plastic wrap and let rest for 10-20 minutes. Roll the dough out and place onto either two round 12 inch greased pizza pans or one greased large cookie sheet. Precook the dough for about 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Add the sauce, sprinkle the cheese on top. Add precooked meat and veggies as desired. Bake another 15-20 minutes until the cheese is melted and sizzling around the edges.

    Sugar is listed as an ingredient but no instructions for it. Surprised no one caught it.
