Homemade Pizza Night
Use fresh ingredients you have on hand for homemade pizza night.
How often do you find yourself crunched for time in the evening with the daunting task of making a healthy dinner? Don’t even think about calling the fast food places, making a homemade pizza is easier then you think!
So you have the local pizza dump on speed dial. Heck! You don’t even have to call anymore, you can order pizza on-line and problem solved. It doesn’t have to be that way because making your own healthy homemade pizza isn’t really that difficult. With ready made pizza dough available online and at your local grocery store, the hardest part will be deciding what to put on it.
Ingredients You Need:
- Ready made pizza dough
- Canned tomatoes
- Parmesan Cheese
- Freshly Ground Black Pepper
- Ham Slices
- Banana Peppers
- Shredded Cheese
- Red Pepper Flakes
- Or Your Favorite Pizza Toppings
Pre-Heat the oven to 400 degrees.
Grease a cooking pan for the dough. A cooking spray is easiest and works the best or drizzle on some Extra Virgin Olive Oil and spread it around with a paper towel or simply use your fingers (its good for the skin :).
Spread the pizza dough evenly across the pan building up ridges on the edges. Avoid putting holes in the dough by working it out gently.
Layer pizza topping. We’ve selected some of our own personal favorites for this recipe, but you can add your own toppings. The key is to spread each topping out evenly so that your toppings are distributed for every slice to taste the same. 3 – 5 toppings are best.
Bake your pizza. It doesn’t take long to bake a pizza, depending on how many layers you’ve added. Usually about 20 minutes in a 400 degree oven should turn your pizza golden brown.

Home made pizza is the BEST!
For two people, a regular sized baking pan is plenty of food for the evening. Having a little left over makes for a nice snack after work or a light lunch the next day.
With a little bit of forethought it’s best to let the pizza dough thaw out completely and rest on the counter for about an hour before you begin. We made the mistake of taking the dough out of the freezer a short time before we started baking it and we could definitely taste the difference.
