Homemade Pizza With Mild Tomato Sauce

"I like making this for my hubby because he loves pizza;. unfortunately he gets terrible heartburn whenever he eats it; but he hasn’t with this recipe. :), This is done before the pizza delivery would arrive! There is always something to throw on a pizza in your fridge. Top with whatever you like. In my opinion, the more the better; and since it makes 2 - 12 “ pizzas put whatever you want on one and make the other one different. I have used this recipe time and time again and my friends/family have secured this one as well. This freezes very well. For freezing instructions, see bottom of directions."

Ready In:
2 12 inch pizzas




  • Preheat oven to 425F degrees.
  • Put flour in large bowl with yeast, sugar, salt; stir together.
  • Stir in vegetable oil and mix well.
  • Add water to the flour mixture and beat vigorously 20 strokes; let rest 5 minutes.
  • Divide dough into 2 parts; toss or roll to shape and place on a pizza pan.
  • In a large saucepan combine tomato sauce, oregano, salt, garlic and pepper; bring to a low boil then simmer for about 10 minutes.
  • Remove sauce from heat and stir in cream.
  • Divide sauce between both pizzas to your own desired amounts.
  • Sprinkle parmesan cheese over top and add other toppings BUT NOT mozzarella cheese.
  • Bake pizza in hot 425F oven for about 15 minutes.
  • Add mozzarella cheese and bake for 10 minutes longer.
  • To Freeze: Make pizza as the above directions including baking. Once cooled wrap thickly in plastic wrap, then wrap in foil, seal tightly and I like to wrap once again in plastic wrap. Will last for 3 months in the freezer. To reheat; totally unwrap frozen pizza and put on a pizza pan with holes in it or directly on the rack of the oven (if you use direct racks place foil underneath to prevent overspills). Bake 425F for 10-15 minutes. If you have loads of toppings it could take another 5 minutes or so. Watch it after the 10-15 minutes.
