Moms Homemade Pizza Recipe @pinch

Need an easy homemade pizza recipe? This is it. It is simple and delicious. The crust is a simple yeast crust that doesn't require a rise and works like a charm. Once baked, It is thick and fluffy. The perfect base for the sauce and your favorite toppings. The sauce is thick and almost sweet with the right balance of spices. There is enough sauce for two pizzas, so we made a second to ensure leftovers. The crust does rise a bit and makes this a thick crust pizza which we enjoyed. When only homemade will do! The dough recipe makes one 12x18 baking sheet (with 1 lip). Mom always doubled this to make 2 pizzas with leftovers for Dad's lunch the next day. The sauce makes enough for 2 pizzas. I freeze the other half for up to 45 days either in a zippered freezer bag or a disposable plastic container. Use any pizza toppings you like. I like turkey pepperoni, black olives, mushrooms, artichokes, and sweet onions.(I got this pizza a little dark, but I also forgot to turn more lights on in my kitchen. The line down the middle was me being over havezealous to eat!)
