Pizza from scratch in under an hour. Much better than the ones you buy! Use your favorite toppings.

This was my very first try at homemade pizza and it was a hit. The size was a perfect 14" diameter. The only change I would make is to try to cut down the salt a bit. There's plenty in the cheese and pepperoni, so I'll leave it out of the sauce completely. I'll also try 3/4t in the dough and see how that works. Oh, and for my husband who likes his crust cooked a little more, I'm going to try browning it in the oven either before or just after the first layer of cheese. Thanks for the recipe, MizzNezz!
