Hey y’all! This easy homemade pizza has quickly become a favorite in our home. A few weeks ago, Louis and I got ingredients to make a pizza together, and it turned out so tasty we’ve made one once a week since then!
Here are the ingredients we use:
1 pack Weisenberger Pizza Crust Mix
1 jar Mezzetta Authentic Pizza Sauce
HEB Cheese – Pizza Blend
Hormel Original Uncured Pepperonis
Feel free to add any other toppings you enjoy on your pizza! Duh. The Weisenberger Pizza Crust Mix is awesome because it gives you a homemade pizza taste without having to make it totally from scratch and wait around all day for the dough to rise. You simply add hot water and let it rise for at least five minutes (we usually give it around 30 minutes). The Mezzetta pizza sauce was recommended by my parents, and it is YUM-O. One jar lasts for about three pizzas, and I even dip my pizza in it because I love the taste so much! I think these two ingredients are really what make this pizza so delicious. Feel free to branch out on the cheese and toppings as your little heart desires, but don’t say I didn’t warn you if you stray from Weisenberger and Mezzetta and your pizza tastes like Italian turds.
Another optional ingredient is a handsome sous chef. (To help in the kitchen obvi…not to chop up for your ‘za.)
Follow the ingredients on the Weisenberger pizza crust mix by adding 1/2 cup of hot water to your mix and stirring it up. Then, cover it in a little oil and form it into a ball. I cover my mixing bowl with a kitchen towel and set it outside to let it rise in the miserable Texas heat.
Once your dough has risen, spread it out into a circle (or a different shape if you’re feeling jazzy) on your greased pizza pan and add your selected ingredients. I also usually add some melted butter and garlic powder to the crust because we are oh-so fancy. Set your oven to 500 degrees, and bake your pizza for 10 minutes.
From prep to plate this pizza takes less than an hour to make, so it’s perfect when you’re craving homemade pizza but don’t have all day to wait for the dough to rise! Hope you enjoy this simple, homemade pizza soon!
