The Easy Way to Make Pizza At Home

Easy homemade pizza starts with an easy dough. No-knead options tend to be best because they are quick and don’t require equipment or labor-intensive kneading.

If you want a dough-free pizza, there are many other crust-like alternatives. Experiment with a tortilla, biscuit, or English muffin as the base. These are such time savers! 

Of course, the texture may be a little different, but if you a quick 10-minute (or less) meal, these shortcuts are unbeatable.

After establishing the crust, top your pizza with tomato or pesto sauce and a liberal sprinkling of shredded mozzarella cheese. 

Then go crazy with chopped vegetables like:

  • Mushrooms
  • Bell pepper
  • Olives

There’s room for meat too. Adding leftover pre-cooked sausage, shredded chicken, or even browned ground beef is a great way to clean out odds and ends in your fridge.

Season with herbs:

  • Basil
  • Oregano
  • Thyme

I’ll send you a bonus point if these herbs come from your own outdoor herb garden. And if that sounds too challenging, start with an indoor herb garden instead. Where there’s a will, there’s a way.
