If you’ve never made pizza at home and cooked it on your BBQ Pizza stone or Sahara Pizza oven you should give it a go.! Now, there is nothing wrong with ordering in your pizza especially after a long day but, it will never taste the same as a homemade Pizza.

What You Need – Simple Homemade pizza dough

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon of instant yeast
  • 3/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Up to 2/3 cup warm water
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil

 

What You Need – Delicious Pizza Sauce

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 garlic cloves roughly chopped
  • 2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes
  • 3 tbsp tomato purée
  • 2 tbsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • Handful of fresh chopped basil

What To Do – Simple Homemade pizza dough

  1. Place the flour, yeast, sugar & salt into a mixing bowl.
  2. Gradually add the warm water and oil until dough forms a mass. It’s important to keep an eye on the dough as you may not need all the water.
  3. After you have combined all the ingredients, the dough should be smooth & elastic. Transfer your dough to a floured surface. Knead by hand for approximately 1 minute.
  4. Cover with plastic wrap and let it rest for 10 minutes.
  5. That’s it, it’s ready to use straight away..

What To Do – Delicious Pizza Sauce

  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan over a low heat.
  2. Add the onion along with a good pinch of salt and fry gently for 10-12 mins.
  3. Add the garlic and fry for a further minute.
  4. Tip in the tomatoes and purée along with the bay, oregano and sugar.
  5. Bring to the boil and lower the heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 30-35 mins or until thickened and reduced. Add in the basil at this point.

If you’ve never made pizza at home and cooked it on your BBQ Pizza stone or Sahara Pizza oven you should give it a go.! Now, there is nothing wrong with ordering in your pizza especially after a long day but, it will never taste the same as a homemade Pizza.

Good pizza starts with good pizza dough. This homemade pizza dough is a perfect recipe for beginners to make because it is so easy with just 6 simple ingredients and 15 minutes hands-on work. Once you try homemade pizza dough, it will be hard to go back to store-bought dough or even pizza delivery.

If you want to make it in advance, store it in the fridge and pull it out when you’re ready to make your homemade pizza! This recipe is so flexible! The thing I love about pizza is if you have a fussy eater at home, they can create their own topping. It’s perfect for everyone! I have also added in the pizza sauce I use, nothing too overpowering, just good produce and fresh herbs.

It can seem like a good idea to smother the pizza dough in sauce, but I don’t recommend it as it makes the base a little soggy, and who in their right minds wants a soggy pizza base!

I think the 4 below are some of the most popular combinations for pizza’s and would be my go too if I knew I had fussy eaters coming (although the pineapple is a little controversial!!!)

  • Pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, pepperoni
  • Pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, basil.
  • BBQ Chicken: Pizza sauce, BBQ sauce, chicken, mozzarella cheese.
  • Tomato Sauce, cheese, ham, pineapple.

If you are a little more adventurous though these combinations are delicious and worth a try.

  • spicy salami, peppers, jalapenos, onions, hot sauce
  • crumbled blue cheese, mushrooms, leafy spinach, red onions and walnuts
  • mushrooms, red onions, bell peppers, black olives, tomatoes and spinach.
  • pepperoni, sausage, green bell pepper, black olives and red onions.

Are you ready to get your pizza fix??
