How to Make Healthy Homemade Pizza

In this section you will learn how to make pizza with your favorite pizza toppings. Plus, I have supplied you with a printable guide for making pizza.

Be sure to see the recipe card in the following section for all of the pizza combinations above!

Best Pizza Toppings

How to Make Homemade Pizza:

  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees. If you’re using a pizza stone, add that in now.
  2. Cover surface and hands or rolling pin with flour. Stretch or roll out each dough ball. Add to a pizza pan, then top with sauce and desired toppings.
  3. Special Tip: If using a pizza paddle, add some cornmeal to the paddle (it will help the pizza slide and also give it that “delivery crunch”). Once the dough is stretched/rolled out, add it to the wheel, then add toppings.
  4. Place in an oven at 500 for 10 min, watch closely and spin it 1/2 way through.
  5. Once cooked through, remove from the oven and let the pizzas sit for 3 min, cut into 8 slices and serve.
