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 first, remember 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 large pizza filled with vegetables for you and your SO, and smaller pizzas with regular cheese for the kids. The options are endless! And with these pizza recipes for inspiration, you’re sure to find something everyone will love.

So, what do you need for the perfect pizza pie? For starters, a great pizza dough recipe! You can make it ahead of time and freeze the pizza dough so it’s ready when you get hungry. That said, you don’t need dough for some of these pizza recipes. There are also options for baguette pizzas (one of Ree Drummond’s favorites) and flatbread pizzas. Next, consider your sauces: tomato, pesto, white sauce, etc. Then pile on the cheese and your favorite toppings — everything 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 is the time to get started! 👩‍🍳 Buon appetito!
