Easy Homemade Pizza Recipe!


Pizza tops the list as a fan favorite for Super Bowl food year after year.  So this year why not try your hand at a semi-homemade version and score a touchdown with your home team!

Homemade Party Pizza  – (Yields 2 large pizzas)


  • 2 balls of pizza dough – they are typically about 1 lb. each (we buy dough at our local pizzeria, you can buy it or make it yourself)
  • ¾ cup tomato sauce
  • 1 lb. thinly sliced mozzarella (we have been using fresh mozzarella and it’s out of this world)
  • Basil (optional)


  1. Remove pizza dough from the refrigerator and allow it to warm to room temperature, at least one hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 450°. Grease 2 large pizza pans.
  3. Place a ball of pizza dough on each pan and starting in the center of each gently knead the dough pressing it out toward edge of pan.
  4. Ladle ¼ cup of sauce in center of each and again spread toward outer edge until evenly distributed (if sauce is looking a little thin for your taste, ladle a bit more on).
  5. Top with thinly sliced mozzarella.
  6. Bake for 12 minutes or until bottom is golden brown and top is bubbly.
  7. Remove from oven, top with basil (optional), slice with pizza wheel and serve. Pop 2nd pizza in oven – the first will go fast!
