Pizza Recipe

Enjoy Homemade Pizza with healthy recipe. This is the pizza crust I’ve been looking for, just soft and chewy enough! The pizza sauce is GREAT, too.

Easy Pizza Recipe


– 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
– 1 teaspoon sugar
– 1-1/4 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
– 1/4 cup canola oil
– 1 teaspoon salt
– 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
– 1/2 pound ground beef
– 1 small onion, chopped
– 1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
– 3 teaspoons dried oregano
– 1 teaspoon dried basil
– 1 medium green pepper, diced
– 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

How To Make Pizza


1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in water; let stand for 5 minutes. Add oil and salt. Stir in flour, a cup at a time, until a soft dough forms.
2. Turn onto floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 2-3 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes. Meanwhile, cook beef and onion over medium heat until no longer pink; drain.
3. Punch down dough; divide in half. Press each into a greased 12-in. pizza pan. Combine the tomato sauce, oregano and basil; spread over each crust. Top with beef mixture, green pepper and cheese.
4. Bake at 400° for 25-30 minutes or until crust is lightly browned.
