Recipe Tips:

By the way, you can freeze your homemade pizza (or just the dough) for future pizza attacks, or when ordering a pizza is the only thing you have the energy to do. Easier, cheaper and healthier to pull a pizza out of the freezer and bake it!

Feel free to substitute whole grain flours for half the white flour, use gf flour mix, or buy a jar of spaghetti or pizza sauce if you don't feel like making your own. If tomato's not your thing, try basil pesto or parsley walnut pesto or bechamel sauce as a pizza sauce

If you plan on making pizza regularly (as in once a month or more), a pizza stone and pizza peel are great investments. Sprinkle the pizza peel with corn meal, lay on the rolled or tossed dough, add your toppings, then slide the assembled pizza into the oven, onto the pre-heated pizza stone. When it's done, slice the pizza peel under it and remove to a board for slicing.
