Making Homemade Pizza (YouTube)

I finally made another YouTube video. I had to make some upgrades in a camera and that took some time. My hope is to keep working on more videos. My son Isaac helped me (my great cameraman! :). Hope you find it helpful!

In this video I'm showing you how to make homemade pizza. Starting with making the crust to the finished pizza.

Below the video you will find the recipe I used for the crust and a recipe for pizza sauce. In the video I used canned spaghetti sauce but if you'd like to make your own the recipe is included.

Pizza Crust
Makes 2 – 14inch pizza crusts

4t yeast
1 ½ cup warm water
4 to 5 cups flour
2t salt
3T olive oil

In a mixer such as a Bosch or a Kitchen Aid add yeast and warm water. Let it sit for a few minutes to dissolve and activate. Add 4 cups of flour and all remaining ingredients. Mix dough well adding the extra flour until the dough does not stick to the sides of the bowl. Knead for about 4 minutes in the Bosch and 6 to 8 in the Kitchen Aid.

Cover and let rise for 45 minutes.

Punch down dough and shape into a ball and roll out to fit a 14 inch pizza pan.

Pre-bake pizza dough at 475 for 5 minutes. Remove from oven, add sauce and toppings. Return to oven (475 degrees) and bake 12 to 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and golden brown. 

Pizza Sauce
3- 8oz cans tomato sauce
1- 6oz can tomato paste
1T Italian seasonings
1t minced garlic, heaping
1t salt
pinch or two of cane juice crystals (or sugar) - according to your own tastes

Heat this up on the stove on low until hot.


  1. Oh my gosh! Thank you for posting this! It looks so easy and yummy!

  2. I enjoyed the video very much. Watching you make the pizza addressed several questions I have had in the past while making this recipe for my family, such as the dough being sticky. I have usually added a little flour to roll the dough. I look forward to making pizzas again and using the oil instead. I have followed your blog for many years and have enjoyed watching your children grow up and reading your blogs during the different stages in your life.

    1. Carol Sue.. Glad to hear the video helped answer questions for you.. :)

  3. What a great video! Thank you!

  4. How fun to hear your voice after all these years. Thanks for the video!

  5. I LOVE your videos!
    Makes me feel like I'm in your kitchen with you (a dream of mine!)
    I use a roller similar to yours, but mine is a plastic one from Pampered Chef. :)

    1. Thank you Laurie!! I think a day spent in the kitchen with you would be so much fun!! :D ...
