18 Best Pizza Recipes - Easy Homemade Pizza Ideas

Pizza night is a staple in many households, but more often than not, families opt for the takeout menu as their easy dinner solution. But before you do, consider this: homemade pizza is easier than you might think! All it takes is dough, sauce, cheese, and your favorite pizza toppings (you can also invest in a pizza stone, but it’s not a necessity). The rest is easy! Plus, making your own pizza means you can customize it to your family’s preferences. Try half pepperoni and half mushrooms or make a big veggie filled pizza for you and your S.O., and smaller plain cheese pizzas for the kids. The options are endless! And with these pizza recipes for inspiration, you’re sure to find something that everyone will love.

So, what do you need for the perfect pizza pie? For starters, a great pizza dough recipe! You can make it in advance and freeze the pizza dough so it’s ready whenever the craving strikes. That said, you don’t need dough for some of these pizza recipes. There are options for French bread pizzas (one of Ree Drummond’s favorites) and flatbread pizzas, too. Next, consider your sauces: tomato, pesto, white sauce, etc. Then pile on the cheese and your favorite toppings—anything from sausage and peppers to buffalo chicken. There’s even a salad pizza that will change the way you think about salads… and pizza for that matter. Whichever direction you choose, if you haven’t tried making your own homemade pizza before, now’s the time to start! 👩‍🍳 Buon appetito!
