Easy Homemade Pizza Recipe

Homemade pizza recipe with bacon, feta cheese, and onions

Homemade pizza can be super healthy and it’s super fun and easy to make. I love having pizza day or family pizza making night. Kids love to make their own pizzas too. When you make homemade pizza, you know exactly what’s in it and you can feel good about feeding it to your family.

When I make homemade pizza, I use the Pioneer Woman’s Favorite Pizza Crust Recipe.  I make it exactly as she directs except I use freshly milled whole wheat flour.

I make garlic butter sauce for my pizza by melting a tablespoon of butter and adding a half a teaspoon of Italian seasoning and a grated clove of garlic.  I mixed it together and spread it on the crust with a pastry brush.

For the kid’s pizza, I use traditional pizza sauce. I make it by making Easy Roasted Tomato Sauce and adding to one cup of sauce, 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning and a clove of grated garlic.  I use about 1/3 cup of the tomato sauce on a pizza.  My recipe for Homemade Pesto Sauce without Nuts would also make a magnificent sauce for homemade pizza.

For my pizza, I loaded it with mushrooms and goat cheese. Then I sprinkled some mozzarella on top. I topped it with a sprinkle of sauteed onions and crispy bits of bacon. For the last topping, I sprinkled a bit of parmesan cheese.

This pizza was amazing.  The best and most decadent bite of pizza I have ever tasted in my life, hands down.  Talk about a decadent homemade pizza!

For the kid’s pizza, I started with pizza sauce. Then I sprinkled the pizza with some dried greens that I made earlier in the summer to boost the nutritional content of the pizza.  They look like herbs and they taste great, even to kids that would otherwise not eat greens.  I’ve been sprinkling them in a lot of dishes to make them even healthier. I love hiding vegetables in food to increase the nutrients.

Next, I sprinkled the pizzas with shredded mozzarella cheese. I topped the homemade pizza with pepperoni. 

I baked the pizzas at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes until the cheese was melted and slightly golden.

It’s not difficult to make homemade pizza. Give it a try at your house.

    That look amazing !!

  3. We make homemade pizza for supper on a regular basis! My oldest son and hubby love BBQ chicken pizza the most, my two younger sons prefer plain cheese (sometimes pepperoni), and I’m always the one doing adventuresome things. Like pesto sauce with raw thinly sliced zucchini and caramelized onions (top fave). Or white bean spread with sage and tomatoes. Another of my faves is goat cheese, mozzarella and garlic-roasted broccoli. mmmmmm! Goat cheese is MADE for pizza! Love it so much!
