So for NYE I decided to try making homemade pizza. My husband and I have been saying we wanted to try it. I’ve heard once you make your own you’ll never buy again! I didn’t want the regular pepperoni so I went for mozzarella, tomato and basil. Let me tell you how amazing it was!! The pictures don’t do it justice!
I bought the dough from Publix for about $2. The mozzarella was also bought at Publix and I got a smaller pack for $4. I used the fresh mozzarella not the shredded cheese packs. I actually had some basil at home. Next time I’ll leave out the pizza sauce because of the heartburn it causes this pregnant lady. I didn’t use a recipe just decided to wing it!
*Preheat your oven to 400
*Roll out your dough preferably on a pizza stone with parchment paper underneath (this will make taking the slices off easier)
*Add olive oil to dough – this is when you can add your pizza sauce also
*Cut up tomatoes and mix with olive oil (mine includes lots of herbs) – add to pizza
*Break up mozzarella in chunky pieces – add to pizza
*Wash basil and add to pizza
*Top with shredded parmesan cheese
*Cook for 18-20 minutes. The tomatoes, mozzarella and basil don’t take long…so use your nose as a timer
*Let pizza cool for about 5 minutes before you try cutting it
