This homemade pizza was really fun to make. I made the pizza dough and the sauce from scratch and just added our favorite toppings. My kids helped with the toppings. The crust recipe I used came from http://allrecipes.com/recipe/premium-pizza-crust/detail.aspx and I followed the recipe using the sponge rinse method. I ended up having to add at least another cup of flour, and next time I will probably add some more flavor with some herbs. I also recommend brushing the edges of the crust with egg white to help it brown, and I did have to bake mine for longer than suggested to get a non-doughy crust. Overall this was a great base recipe for making crust! Just add some of the flavors you like to make it your own.
The recipe I used for the pizza sauce came from http://allrecipes.com/recipe/exquisite-pizza-sauce/detail.aspx and it was very easy to make, it just calls for a lot of seasoning. Next time I might cut some of the seasoning just a bit, but this was a yummy sauce!
The dough was easy to roll out and shape!
This was my sauce...
I thought it would be fun to make one circle pizza and one square!
This was the pepperoni prior to baking!
And here is the hawaiian pizza. My favorite toppings!
