Easy, No Fuss Pizza

warm pizza with vegetables

Everyone loves pizza, it’s the ultimate crowd-pleaser. Skip the delivery order and take pizza night to the next level with a homemade pizza. Get creative with the toppings and let the kids get involved to make their own pies.

The recipe makes 2 large pizzas (sheet pan size) or 6-8 small individual pies. 

Why should you make pizza at home?

  • Nothing beats the flavor of freshly baked pizza straight out of your oven.
  • Homemade pizzas are definitely more nutritious compared to the majority of frozen pizzas.
  • Big money saver.
  • Making your very pizza will impress your friends and family.
  • A great and fun way to spend time with your family, especially with kids. In my family, pizza nights are the best nights.

  • 3 1/2 cups (500 grams) all-purpose flour+a little more for dusting
  • 1 tablespoon (10 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon (10 grams) active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) olive oil+ a little more for greasing

  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese or vegan cheese shredded

Instructions

  • In a mixer, combine flour, sugar, and yeast. With the mixer running on low speed, drizzle in olive oil until combined with flour.
  • Pour in gradually water and mix just until a dough is formed (about 2 minutes). Then add salt. If the dough is dry add a tiny bit of water until it comes together.
  • Let the mixer knead for 5-6 minutes, the dough should be smooth and a little sticky.
  • Form the dough into a ball. Place in a bowl than grease it with a little olive oil.
  • Cover the bowl and set it aside in a warm area until the dough doubles in size (approximately 1 to 2 hours).
  • Preheat the oven to 45O°F/230°C.
  • Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and divide it into 2 equal balls (or smaller ones if making personal pizzas). Cover each with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap and let rest for 10 minutes.
  • Use your fingers to stretch it, then your hands or a rolling pin to shape it into rounds or squares.
  • Top with pizza sauce, cheese, and your favorite veggies.
  • Bake for 8-15 minutes until golden.
  • Enjoy warm!
