One of my favorite hobbies is baking and cooking and I am ALL about making it easy and stress free. Today I’m partnering up with Coupons.com to bring you an AMAZING giveaway, and share with you how I simplify my life in the kitchen when making one of my favorite meals, pizza!
My mother has become the pizza pro lately. She has been teaching me how to make homemade pizza easier and quicker than you could even go grab one. Not to mention it’s healthier for you, and MUCH more delicious!
My main reason for loving this meal though? How simple it is to put together!
First, roll out your dough to your desired size (make sure to flour your surface first!) My mother makes homemade dough using a French Bread recipe (which I can get for you if you’d like), or most stores have ready made dough you can buy to simplify the process even more!
Then spread your desired sauce on the rolled out dough. Again, my amazing mother makes her own sauce, but for simplicity’s sake feel free to use store bought!
Now you’re ready for toppings! Add whatever you wish. We used freshly grated mozzarella cheese, basil, mushrooms, pineapples, and ham. The possibilities are endless!
Ready to go in the oven!
A pizza stone is almost essential for homemade pizza making, it draws the moisture out of the crust so it is crispy and cooked thoroughly. When using a pizza stone, it is recommended you put the stone in the oven to get nice and hot before adding the pizza, hence why we were using a board when we were applying toppings. The better method is to use what is called a pizza peel, to slide the pizza right onto your hot stone for baking.
Ding, it’s done! We cooked ours at 450 degrees for about 15-18 minutes, but your time will depend on your dough, oven, and dough thickness. Make sure you use a pizza wheel to cut your pizza perfectly!
I told you it was easy! All of the ingredients are so inexpensive, and the supplies are minimal! Make sure you check Coupons.com before you head to the store to save even more on your pizza essentials.
Tip: This starter Pizza Stone kit is great to get you going!
