"Don't get crazy." <-- If this is your first time making pizza from scratch, that's probably what you thought to yourself as you read the title. It's really not hard.  I promise.

2) Stir in the salt, oil, parmesan, garlic powder, onion powder, italian seasoning, and flour.  Add flour until the dough is no longer sticky.

3) Place the dough into a well oiled bowl and cover, letting the dough rise for 1 hour.

While the dough rises, you can make your pizza sauce.

Ingredients (sauce):

1 (6oz.) can tomato paste
6oz. warm water
3 tablespoons parmesan
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon anchovy paste**
3/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon each - oregano, marjoram, basil, pepper, cayenne, red pepper flakes

**If you can't find anchovy paste (like me), you can make your own**

Blend in your food processor - 20 anchovy filets, 4 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon wine vinegar, a clove of garlic and ground pepper (to taste).  It makes more than you'll need, so I recommend freezing the extra paste by the teaspoonful, for future pizzas.

Back to the sauce...

Directions:

1) Mix everything together and let sit for 30 minutes to blend the flavors.

Once you finish the sauce, and the dough has risen...

Punch down the dough and form a tight ball.  Spread out over a floured (or cornmeal) pizza stone.  Top with sauce, cheese and then pepperoni - I used 16oz. of shredded mozzarella and 6oz. container of pepperoni.

Place the pizza on the bottom rack of your preheated oven.  Bake for 18 - 20 minutes at 425 degrees.

What are your favorite toppings? 
{Mine are extra cheese, hamburger and jalapenos}

  1. This looks absolutely amazing. I could eat an entire pizza like this one. Homemade crust is always THE best! My fav toppings to add are: pineapple
    mushroom
    peperoni
    black olive
