Family Fun Homemade Pepperoni Pizza

Updated on August 30, 2017

Making Homemade Pizza

Making homemade pizza with your family is something that the children can get into. Make this pizza for family night. Get ready to bake this comfort food with the help of all the family. That is where all the fun comes in. Children love to say, "I made that!"

We have made many pizzas with my daughter since she was a little girl. She loves mixing up the ingredients and kneading the dough. At times we cheated and bought a pizza dough mix, where you just add water and let it sit for 10 or more minutes in a warm place for the dough..

Of course there is the easy way to pop in the oven a Chicago Deep Dish Pizza.

Pizza Dough Recipe


1 cup plus 2 tablespoons warm water (105 to 115)

2 1/4 teaspoons (a 1/4-ounce envelope) active dry yeast

3 cups unbleached flour

1 1/4 teaspoons salt

2 tablespoons olive oil

1. Pour the water into a small bowl and sprinkle the yeast over it.

2. Let the mixture stand until it becomes slightly foamy, then stir it until the yeast dissolves.

3. In a large bowl, combine the flour and salt. Add the yeast mixture and the oil to the flour and stir until a soft dough forms.

4. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Dust your hands with flour and knead the dough. Add a little more flour if the dough is too. Continue kneading until the dough is smooth and springs back when pinched, about 10 minutes.

5. Lightly oil the inside of a large bowl. Place the dough in the bowl and turn it over once so that the top and bottom will be coated with oil. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set it in a warm place until the dough doubles in volume, about 1 1/2 hours.

6. Once the dough has time to rise, flatten the dough with your fist. Knead it for a couple of minutes. Cut it in two and shape each piece into a ball.

7. Roll out each ball on a floured surface around 10 to 15 inches. Put the rolled out dough on a floured pizza pan or baking sheet and push a little with your hands till thee dough cover the edges of the pan. This dough recipe will make two round pizzas or one large pizza on a baking sheet.

Pizza Toppings and Cooking Instructions - Don't Stop There, Add Your Own Toppings


2 Tbsp. Italian seasoning (or oregano)

1 big can tomato sauce

2- 3 cups mozzarella cheese (depending on taste)

1 package of Pepperoni (12 oz. or better)

Note: May substitute canned pizza sauce in place of seasoning and tomato sauce.


1. Cook the dough on the pans for 5 minutes in a pre-heated oven of 450 degrees F. This will give a more crispy pizza.

2. Take the pans out and divide the sauce, cheese and pepperoni into two (assuming you will be using the two pizza pans). First add the sauce evenly, then the mozzarella cheese and pepperoni to your taste.

3. Cook in the oven for approx. 20 minutes. Time may vary with different ovens.

Thin or Thick Crust - What is Your Preference?

My husbands favorite is thin crust pizza. My daughter and myself prefer thick crust. Rolling out your own pizza dough is a little closer to the thin crust, though we have made thick crust on occasion.

Do you prefer thick or thin crust pizza?
