This was soooo good tonight. We made many different pizzas (pictures to come).

Previous Reviews I have made this time and time again with GREAT success, and yummy pizza to boot! Everyone loves it, and I am so glad to have this on here!!
: You deserve a HUGE pat on the back for this recipe! This is great pizza!!! People were all over this, and asking what I used as sauce. When I told them the answer, they were SO surprised.
This is the best simple pizza we have made, and I appreciate you putting it on here! Thanks so much Cire!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add water, yeast, sugar, and salt to mixing bowl.
  2. Let sit 10 minutes. You should see bubbles of yeast (if not, you may have the wrong water temperature: start over).
  3. Mix in flour conservatively - don't add too much. After mixing it in, keep adding until dough is not wet looking and can be kneaded.
  4. Knead dough until smooth.
  5. Let rise at least 30 minutes (ideally 1 hour) at room temperature.
  6. Pre-heat oven to 475 degrees.
  7. Split dough into pieces (3-5 depending on size of pizza).
  8. Roll dough out each to the size of your pan (toss if desired to help reach appropriate size).
  9. Sprinkle corn meal onto each pan.
  10. Place dough onto pans, stretching or squeezing if necessary to fit properly.
  11. Spread some tomato sauce onto dough, leaving about an inch around the outside without sauce.
  12. Spread some cheese on top of the sauce.
  13. Add additional toppings as desired.
  14. Bake for 8-12 minutes, or until dough is fully cooked. The bottom of the pizza should be at least a little crispy.
