Homemade pizza is high on our list of go-to meals, with thousands of ways to spice it up, you’ll feel like a master chef on your first try.
- 1 package pizza dough
- 1 can pizza sauce
- 1 bag shredded pizza cheese
- Olive oil, pepper, oregano
- Desired vegetables (we used onions, peppers, olives, mushrooms, and spinach)
- Desired meat (we used pepperoni, but sausage, chicken or vegetarian works too)
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees and grease a medium sized baking sheet.
- Roll out pizza dough to fit the square shaped baking sheet.
- Spread pizza sauce across dough, leaving about ½ an inch near the edges for the “crust.”
- Cover pizza sauce with shredded cheese, distributing evenly (you’ll probably need the entire bag).
- Wash, cut, and dry vegetables, distribute evenly across the cheese.
- Distribute meat across the pizza.
- Sprinkle olive oil, oregano, and pepper across the top of the pizza.
- Bake for 12-14 minutes.
- Let cool, slice with pizza cutter and serve. Top with ranch if preferred.
(DDF Tip: Use the “broil” setting on your oven for the final few minutes to achieve that crunchy, golden texture we all love.)
