Let’s face it– pizza is a staple in our lives. We love taking that first bite and seeing how long we can get the gooey cheese to pull. Crust, sauce, and cheese seem to be the perfect combo! With pizza shops around every corner, this tasty treat is readily available. However, there’s something extra special about indulging in a pizza fresh out of your own oven, made just the way you like it. You can even get the kids involved! A lot of the best homemade pizza recipes are generally easy. You can buy dough at the store or even sometimes at your local pizza shop, or make your own. From there, just get your desired toppings!
The Forq app is filled with tons of the best homemade pizza recipes! Scroll through to find some, or add your own!
Start with the Dough
Arguably, the most important thing about pizza is the dough. I have pre-bought dough at the grocery store before, but if I don’t have time to make it homemade, I prefer going to my favorite pizza restaurant to buy it. In my experience, it is super cost effective! However, the best homemade pizza recipes start with homemade dough. For classic pizza, try this No-Rise Pizza Dough. Sometimes I even use a Cauliflower Pizza Base. Using a base like cauliflower is an awesome healthy alternative, but just because dough is a carb doesn’t automatically make your pizza unhealthy. Your body needs carbohydrates for energy, so it’s moreso the toppings you choose to add that decide how healthy your pizza is!
Choose Your Sauce
piYes that’s right, choose your sauce! Don’t get bogged down with the idea that the only sauce that belongs on pizza is red. Try any sauce you want, or even no sauce at all! Switch things up with something like this Tomato and Pesto Pizza. Or, one of my personal favorites is to take leftover alfredo sauce, add some more cheese, chicken, and broccoli. Yum!
Add the Toppings
The best homemade pizza recipes start with the dough, and end with the toppings! I love being creative with my pizzas, although I do appreciate a good cheese pizza. Personally, I prefer slicing up fresh mozzarella for my cheese, then building my pizza from there. I usually add fresh basil and other veggies I find in my fridge. Get creative! If you need a little inspiration, here are a few of the best homemade pizza recipes on the Forq app:
