How to Make a Homemade Pizza

Making a homemade pizza from your apartment at The Quarters can be a fun activity for the whole family to enjoy. The process is relatively simple to do, and by following this easy recipe you can enjoy your homemade pizza in as little as 90 minutes. You will need the following ingredients.

Dough:

  • 1 (.25 ounce) envelope of active dry yeast

  • 1 cup of lukewarm water

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • ¼ Tsp salt

  • 2 TBS of shortening

Sauce:

  • 1 TBS of vegetable oil

  • ½ cup chopped onion

  • 1 (6 ounce) can of tomato paste

  • 6 fluid ounces of water

  • ½ Tsp of white sugar

  • 1 Tsp of salt

  • 1/8 Tsp of black pepper

  • ¼ Tsp of garlic powder

  • ¼ Tsp of dried basil

  • ½ Tsp of dried oregano

  • ¼ Tsp of dried marjoram

  • ¼ Tsp ground cumin

  • 1/4Tsp of chili powder

  • 1/8 Tsp of crushed red pepper flakes

Once you have assembled all of the ingredients:

  • Dissolve the yeast in warm water and let it stand until it is creamy, about 10 minutes

  • Combine all of the ingredients listed under the dough category into a large bowl with the yeast and stir. Once the dough has pulled together, place it on a lightly floured surface and knead it until it is smooth and elastic. Place the dough back in the bowl and cover it with a towel and let it rise for about 45 minutes.

  • While waiting for the dough to rise, heat up some oil in a small sauce pan and add the tomato paste and water. Mix in all of the other ingredients listed under the sauce category and let it simmer for about 15-20 minutes.

  • Once the dough has risen, spread it out onto a pizza pan and cover it with the sauce. Add cheese and any other toppings you would like and place it into an oven that has been preheated to 400 degrees. Let it bake for about 20 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
