Easy Home Made Pizza in 30 Minutes

Saturday is our local farmer’s market day and it is a very exciting day at our house. Usually after our day of shopping we prep a big meal with lots of our local veggies. Tonight’s dinner turned into an impromptu attempt at fresh homemade pizza. I had never made pizza from scratch but we decided that worse case scenario it would be edible. Making pizza sounds like a bigger hassle than calling for delivery but start to finish it only took about 30 minutes and it was really filling. 
The dough: 
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
Mix together well, then place on a lightly floured surface and knead a few times until the dough is a good consistency. Roll out into a thin crust and place on a baking sheet. 

We brushed on a little olive oil before we added the sauce and toppings, and we didn’t make our sauce. We used Classico brand because its about as simple as store bought sauce can be.
Top with all your favorite toppings and bake at 400° for 18-20 minutes. Voila!

In case you were wondering, we just topped it with what 
we had on hand which ended up being:
  • Cheese
  • Tomatoes
  • Green peppers
  • Onions
  • Assorted olives
  • Jalapeños

Overall we liked it. The crust was a little thicker than we liked and we will use more sauce next time but those are just our preferences. It was a quick easy recipe and could be adapted to whatever ingredients on hand as long as you have the sauce.
