Homemade Pizza Making Tips

Here in my home we are huge pizza lovers! We try to make a homemade pizza every week and vary up our toppings to keep it fresh and interesting. One of our favorite types of pizza to make is a good homemade chicken ranch pizza. Have you ever tried it? If not, it is really easy to make and is super delicious!

I know some people buy pre-made pizza crusts but we like to make our own. It does take a little longer in the prep time to make a homemade pizza, but I feel a good homemade crust is essential to a perfectly baked pizza.

Another important ingredient is the pizza cheese. We do not use any imitation cheeses here in our home as they always taste like rubber. We are really picky in regards to our pizza cheese so feel that buying the best cheese that you can find is essential to a great tasting cheesy pizza!

Making your own homemade pizza isn't hard at all and I do recommend that you use fresh vegetables as your toppings. (frozen veggies don't taste as great as the fresh ones). Once you have your pizza assembled you can bake it in the oven or on very hot summer days you can put it on your barbecue grill and grill it! Yummy!

I would love to hear about your pizza making tips along with what type of pizza is your favorite? Do you prefer red sauces or white sauces on your pizza? Please feel free to leave me some comments below!
