We've taken quite a years worth of break and sincerely apologize for the lack of updates. Life gets pretty crazy and is so busy, but since I made some homemade pizza today with my friend, I thought I'd share it :-)
We actually made the dough from scratch and it turned out super yummy! I used this recipe! We used instant yeast instead of active yeast but it's important that you still add the warm water (& if the dough isn't coming together like with ours, we added a teensy bit more oil to add moisture). Depending on where you live/where you let the dough rise, the dough may need a little bit more time to rise - for us, it took about an hour and when we took it out of the bowl to knead it, it was light and airy and soft. No need to knead (hah) it too many times.
We split the dough into two and made two medium sized pizzas. Here's the recipe we used for the sauce! We actually didn't have 15 oz can of tomato sauce; we had an 8 oz on hand so we used half of the tomato paste but used the same amount of spices and herbs and it turned out just fine! Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit and bake each pizza with your desired toppings for about 10-12 minutes (we did 10) if they are medium sized!
We topped our pizzas with the tomato sauce, some mixed shredded cheese & some cute pepperoni slices we got from the supermarket. But feel free to use any toppings you like and don't be afraid to be creative!
These turned out absolutely delicious and the recipes serve quite a lot of people so you can mix and match flavors and share them with a group of people.
