Homemade Pizza

Homemade Pizza

I found some whole wheat pizza dough at my local Trader Joe’s & decided to make a homemade pizza. This was an excellent, crispy & delicious pizza… it was a big hit with all of us (especially the kids). I will be making my own pizzas from now on! Really easy, much healthier & so tasty.

How to Make a Homemade Pizza:


  • 16 oz prepared pizza dough (I used whole wheat & it was amazing)
  • 1/2 cup of pizza sauce or marinara sauce
  • 1-2 cups of mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • Pepperoni (as much as desired)
  • 1 cup of sliced mushrooms, sliced very thin
  • 1-2 tbsp sweet yellow onion, sliced very thin
  • Fresh pineapple cut into small chunks (or canned pineapple tidbits)
  • 1/2 tsp fennel seeds, crushed (reminds me of my favorite Louie’s Pizza)
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tbsp shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp fresh parsley, chopped

Let the dough sit on a floured surface for 20 minutes before rolling it out.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

Roll the dough into whatever shape & size of pizza you desire. Place on a round or square baking tray coated with cooking spray.

Spread sauce, mozzarella, pepperoni, mushrooms, onions, pineapple, fennel seeds, basil & Parmesan cheese on top.

Place into the oven and bake for 10-14 minutes until desired crispiness. Remove from oven and add fresh parsley. Enjoy.
