Homemade Pizza So Good It’s Better Than Delivery

Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a huge pizza fan. I have a dream of one day having my own outdoors pizza oven, and when I watched one being built on HGTV yesterday it set me into pizza mode.

 

I made my own dough:

2 cups of milk

1 package of dry yeast

2 eggs

salt

Flour (until the dough is perfect)

 

Warm the milk a bit, stir in the dough. Add the eggs and salt and mix. Start adding a bit of flour, and when you can no longer use the whisk start kneading with your hands. Let the dough stand in the bowl covered with a piece of cloth for 30 minutes to 1 1/2 hour.

 

Sauce: In a food processor/food chopper add 1/2 – 1 can of diced tomatoes. 1 handful of fresh basil (or a tsp. of dried basil), add fresh or dried oregano, and 1-2 gloves of garlic.

Mix and put it pot and let it simmer until needed. Add salt, ketchup and/or tomato puree depending on your taste buds.

I like to be generous with my sauce, so I added quite a bit.

My toppings:

red onion

sliced tomatoes

green pepper

olives

spinach

pineapple

Fresh shredded mozzarella cheese

 

After the pizza came out of the oven I topped it with dried oregano.

 

The result was one amazingly taste pizza, and I have to admit that it actually tasted better than the ones from the pizzeria.

I did use one secret “ingredient”, but to see what it was you will have to check out my blog FrugalMom’s Favorite Things.

 

Of course everything from the flour to the Spinach was bought on sale and/or with coupons to make it a very frugal meal.


What is your favorite pizza topping?
