Friday night was my turn for Family Night. I decided to invite the dudes over to make some homemade pizzas, and also watch The Karate Kid. The pizza’s were super easy, and we had a ton of fun. Bonding with my 6th grade small group is always a plus, especially when a retreat is about a month away and I’m still trying to get them to register.
Here are some shots from the night, and scroll to the bottom for the recipe.
Easy homemade pizza recipe
- 1 bag of Pre-made pizza dough (publix, it’s light and fluffy)
- 4 cloves of garlic
- 1 tbsp dried basil
- 1 (28oz) can of crushed tomatoes
- Olive Oil
- Mozzarella Cheese
- salt to taste
Preheat oven to 525 degrees
Poor enough olive oil to cover the bottom of pan. Crush garlic, and cook in the olive oil but do not let it turn brown. Add crushed tomatoes and basil, let cook for 15 minutes. Roll dough to the thickness you want, 1 bag usually makes 2 medium-size thin crust pizzas. Spread sauce over dough, add cheese, then any toppings you want. Brush olive oil over the outer crust. Place in oven, middle rack. Cook for 8-10 minutes.
