Homemade Pizza Recipe

This homemade pizza recipe is perfect for any home cook. Preparing homemade pizza is a fun exercise that can be enjoyed by the whole family. When my niece visits, she always asks us to make pizzas and she enjoys helping us prepare and kneed the dough. It makes for great memories. The secret for the perfect, crispy pizza base lies in the flour and we use semolina flour in our recipe. Semolina is aslo known as pasta flour because it is the best flour to use for making pasta and pizza bases.

Many people claim they make the best homemade pizza. Our homemade pizza recipe is simple and very basic. We believe the secret to a great-tasting pizza lies in the ingredients in the topping, where the base plays a primary purpose in keeping everything together.

Two of our friends own a pizza joint and they sell the best tasting pizzas in town. They use exactly the same base as we use in our homemade pizza recipe and believe me when I say, the town loves their pizzas.

Another great thing about this homemade pizza recipe is how quick and easy it is to prepare. There is nothing fancy about it, we stick to the basics, something that always works in food, and the ingredients we use should be something that is available in the kitchens of most homes.
