Homemade Pizza Recipe

Homemade Pizza RecipeA while back I made a tutorial on how to make thin crust pizza. I have worked on this Homemade Pizza Recipe for years and am happy to share it.

Based on comments though, I decided to remake it. Now I make everything 100% by hand. I also show you how to work with a wet dough, knead dough, add tons of toppings and much more.

You’ll learn a great deal about baking in this one tutorial. I hope you like it 🙂

    is it neccesary to cook it on a stone?

      I have never tried cooking on a regular pan. I have however cooked on a regular flat stone over a campfire and received similar results. I’m not sure if my wife would let me try putting a stone in my oven or not 🙂
