When I refer to "Homemade" Pizza, it doesn't mean the kind that you buy from frozen section at your local grocery store and pop it in an over at home and claim it to be homemade. We are talking about a real deal here (minus making a pie crust from scratch of course, I haven't gone that far yet.).
I made a post about my homemade pizza in the past but never got around to show you how easy it is to whip this thing up. It is great on the day of the week when you feel tired and want something quick but is still healthy. If it is not simple, I am not going to do it. Talking about working an 8-5 job yet still have to spend another hour or two in a kitchen in the evening, hell NO I say!
Pizza gets a bad rep for high sodium, high carb, high fat and zero fiber but you can make it way healthier than that. Ever since making my own at home, I have never had an urge to order from any pizza place ever again and it has been two years at least. We make it on an average of twice a month. Of course the hub resists he sticks with the pepperoni and cheese while I rotate my toppings with various veggies and meats.
We love this pizza crust. It is super thin and almost like flatbread/pita chip when baked. Plus very low in sodium. Too much sodium makes your body bloated which is not always a pleasant thing.
Don't restrict yourself to using "Pizza sauce" only. Any pasta sauce or tomatoes based sauce will do. I have been using this pasta sauce for as long as I could remember as my pizza sauce because it is low in sodium and it tastes great.
Only 40mg for 1/4 cup versus most brands that has whooping 500+mg of sodium per 1/4 cup.
Add your green, red, yellow, purple. Add the rainbow colors of veggies as toppings. Some mushroom and meats if you like. I love baby kale / baby spinach and avocado combo.
Scoop some sauce and spread a thin (or thick if you want) layer on your pizza crust. I simply put my pizza crust on a cooking sheet. No fancy pizza stone needed. Works like a charm!
Top with your veggies and meat
Don't forget your cheese. Remember we try to make this healthy so don't dump an entire bag although you may be tempted to.
I like to sprinkle mine with some herb. Use fresh or dried then lightly sprinkle with olive oil.
Ready? Set....Bake.... I set my oven temperature at 395F and bake between 12 - 15 mins depending how crisp I want the crust to be.
