Real Food Recipes | Homemade Pizza Dough

Homemade Pizza Dough

There is nothing quite as delicious as homemade pizza.  And, making pizza dough is really very simple!   Making your own pizza (dough and all) is MUCH cheaper than ordering out for delivery which is a MAJOR plus in our household too! I’m always on the look out for simple and budget friendly recipes.  People often complain that real food costs more.  Sometimes that is true…but it isn’t always the case.  This homemade pizza is a very affordable clean eating recipe so be sure to print it out and save it!

You can also make a double batch and freeze the rest.  Just wrap it in plastic wrap and pop it in a freezer bag.  The next time you want to make homemade pizza you can just pull it out of the freezer in morning and place it in a greased bowl (roll a little olive oil around in it). Then, it will rise just in time for dinner!

I use my pizza dough for more than just homemade baked pizza!  I also use it to make calzones, mini personal sized pizzas, and grilled pizza!  Any way you make it … it is delicious!  You can see other ideas for using homemade pizza dough here.

  1. Have you tried Fleischmann’s pizza crust yeast? I just discovered it and love it because you don’t have to let the dough rise. Besides pizza, I often make bread sticks to serve with soups and chili. Just mix together butter and minced garlic, then spread it on the dough and sprinkle with parmesan cheese before you bake it. Thanks for the tip on letting the dough rise in the oven.

    I love making my own pizza dough – especially since if I make it, I can make it 100% whole wheat. I use instant yeast if I need to cut down on the rising time. Oh, and I’m REALLY lazy so I use my bread machine to mix the dough, LOL! (I totally heart my bread machine….)

  3. I used this recipe tonight to make homemade pepperoni-cheese balls. They turned out fantastic! Thank you for posting this recipe.

  4. We made pizza last night and the dough was super easy along with very good

  5. Thanks for the idea. I will try this for my family this week. I’m going to try making it with whole wheat flour.

  6. How long do you bake this and at what temp?

      I turn my oven on wide open. :) It gives it the brick oven flavor without a brick oven. It only has to cook 5 to 7 minutes this way.

      • I think I must be slow. I don’t understand what you mean by turning your oven on wide open…. lol

        • Denisesawyer says:

          i mean I turn my oven on as hot as it will go. Which in your case could be anywhere from 500 to 535 to 550 depending on your oven model. Any will do – just turn it on as hot as it can go. :)

  7. which pizza sauce do you use?

  8. When I was a kid, my family would make pizza once a week with homemade dough, but I had never made it myself til now. It wasn’t nearly as much work as I expected, even doing everything by hand! Don’t have a pizza pan or stone, so I just rolled it out “free form” on a large cookie sheet. My tip: brush the pan and the top of the crust (before topping) with garlic herb butter! Yummy!

    • Denisesawyer says:

      Sound divine!
      Thanks for sharing. The sky is the limit with pizza! That is what is so great, you can try something new EVERY time. :)

  9. I have a similar recipe I use, but 2 tbsp of honey instead of sugar. I mix it in with the warm water, salt and yeast. It just gives it a subtle sweet taste:)
