Ultimate Guide to Homemade Pizza

Crisp crackling crusts and gooey, stringy cheese is something that the home cook has pined after for years and years. While it’s tough to match a really good brick oven pie with a homemade pizza, you can get pretty close with a good recipe and a few key tips. Plus, you can now and forever just skip over any of those chain delivery joints.

This is a collection of pretty much anything and everything you need to make really delicious homemade pizza, from dough to sauce.

I’ve compiled over 100 resources and links from my most trusted reading list so just go ahead and bookmark this bad boy right this minute.

Making Homemade Pizza Dough

Many people think that good homemade pizza is all about the recipe, but it’s really all about the crust. You can buy a variety of pizza doughs these days, but making homemade pizza dough yourself is the best way to go. Follow these links and you’ll be well on your way!

Homemade Pizza Sauces

Ok. Pick your crust and the next step is homemade pizza sauce. Just combining the above crusts with the below sauces gives you a pretty solid list of homemade pizza recipes. It should keep you busy for many pizza parties!

Homemade Pizza Recipes

With a good dough and a good sauce recipe, you can pretty much toss anything on a pizza, but sometimes it helps to have an actual homemade pizza recipe. Here’s a bunch of my favorites, new and old!

Classic pizza flavors (dough, meat cheese, veggies) go great in all kinds of things. Here are some delicious, if maybe a bit different, ways to sneak it into homemade pizza!

Equipment and Gear

Believe it or not, you don’t need a lot of fancy equipment to make really good pie. You can make the dough by hand and cook it on a plain baking sheet and get pretty good results (you can even roll it out with a wine bottle). If you get into it though, grabbing some of these things will make your life much easier (and pizza better)!

Making the Ultimate Guide Even More Ultimate!

I did my best to include resources and recipes that I personally love in this list, but I’m sure I missed good stuff out there on the Internet.
