Homemade Pizza Supreme

Even if you've never made pizza from scratch, I hope you'll try this recipe. it's the highlight of my favorite casual meal. You have to plan ahead to allow rising time for the dough, but it is easy to work with and the crust is so good.
  • Total Time
    Prep: 45 min. + rising Bake: 30 min.
  • Makes
    2 pizzas (6 slices each)

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 2 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 to 6 cups all-purpose flour
  • SAUCE:
  • 2 cans (8 ounces each) tomato sauce
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons grated onion
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • TOPPINGS:
  • 4 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 4 ounces Canadian bacon, diced
  • 1 package (3-1/2 ounces) sliced pepperoni
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, sliced
  • 1 medium green pepper, sliced
  • 1 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup minced fresh basil

Directions

  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add oil, salt and 2 cups flour. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rest in a warm place for 10 minutes.
  • Combine sauce ingredients; set aside. Divide dough in half. On a floured surface, roll each portion into a 13-in. circle. Transfer to two greased 12-in. pizza pans; build up edges slightly.
  • Bake at 375° for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Spread with sauce; sprinkle with toppings. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted.

    Good recipe. I especially like the simple sauce recipe. I’ve used it many times.

    Tried this last week & it was wonderful. A big hit with the family. It had been a while since I'd made dough from scratch, but after making this, I don't know why I waited so long to make dough! It went together easily & was so elastic & pliable. The crusts were incredibly beautiful, light & tender. Family has asked this be made again (yay!) and I will always use this recipe from now on. I've never had such good pizza.

    Just made this pizza last night and it turned out wonderful. I used pepperoni, ham, onions, and mushrooms as my toppings. Everyone loved the crust. I did mix some olive oil and garlic salt and spread it on the crust edges when it came out of the oven. This pizza recipe will be the one I use all the time now!

    I HAVE FINALLY FOUND MY FAVORITE PIZZA DOUGH RECIPE!! IT CAME OUT LOOKING EXACTLY LIKE THE PICTURE, AND TASTED AMAZING. THE ONLY THING I CHANGED WAS TO SUBSTITUTE 1 CUP OF WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR. IT MAKES IT HEALTHIER, CRISPIER AND ADDS A LOT MORE FLAVOR THAN JUST WHITE FLOUR. ALSO USED MY HOMEMADE SPAGHETTI SAUCE AS OPPOSED TO THE RECIPE . I HAVE FOUND MONTEREY JACK CHEESE ( I USE TILLAMOOK) TO BE A MUCH TASTIER SUBSTITUTE THAN MOZZARELLA. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THIS RECIPE! arnetage68

    This has become my go-to recipe for homemade pizza. My kids love it and actually prefer it to any take-out pizza! The dough is quite easy to work with. I do substitute olive oil for the vegetable oil.

    To make a crispier crust substitute the 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil to 3 tablespoons of olive oil.
