Simply Pizza !

Home made Pizza

Home made pizza is great and easy to make when you have short notice for company or are not sure what to make for dinner. I am even planing on having some friends over and doing a make your own personal pizza party. This is a great starter recipe for creating your own pizza, you could do anything from a Greek to BBQ pizza. I can remember my grandma making pizza growing up, sadly we do not have her recipe for pizza dough, I hope over time I can create one very similar.

Here is what you will need

1/2 lb sausage
2 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup shortening
3/4 cup milk
1 1/4 cup tomato sauce
1 11/2 cups shredded cheese
1/2 bag mixed frozen peppers and onions

  • Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, shortening in a bowl and mix together, once evenly mixed add in the milk once mixed, knead the dough for 1-2 minutes on a lightly floured board.
  • Roll out the dough so that it is about 1/4 inch thick and pinch or roll up the edges.
  • Cook the sausage thoroughly and break into small pieces.
  • to assemble the pizza, spread the tomato sauce evenly, cover with cheese, then top off with the frozen peppers and onions and finally the sausage.
  • place the pizza on a pizza stone, in a preheated 425F oven for 15-20 minutes.


  1. What a beautifully seasoned stone! Is that Pampered Chef? Theirs are the best I have ever used!

  2. Why yes it is, Pampered chef makes great products and we also use their stones for baking our bread. if any of my readers dont have one they should get one, its something that when taken care of lasts a life time
