Homemade Pizza

pizza 3

Last week all I wanted to eat for dinner was some good homemade pizza. But with my work and school schedule, making pizza was just not going to happen. So when the weekend came I spent the lazy Saturday sipping wine and making pizza. It wasn’t too difficult to make, and it wasn’t super gourmet, but it was sharing that time cooking that I appreciate.

There are a ton of variations for how to make pizza, but here’s what I put on mine…

Homemade Pizza

Serves 2

Fresh pizza dough

Marinara sauce

Mozzarella, shredded

2 tomatoes, diced

1/4 red onion, chopped and sautéed

4 white mushrooms, chopped and sautéed

1 tbsp. fresh basil, chopped


Sauté the red onions, and mushrooms until they are caramelized, then set aside. Roll out the pizza dough and place on pizza stone. Set oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (adjust to how crispy or doughy you prefer your pizza dough). Cover pizza dough with marinara sauce and mozzarella. Put on the pepperoni, followed by the sautéed vegetables, and fresh basil. Put the pizza in the oven for 10 minutes (again, adjust to how you like your pizza cooked).
