Homemade Cheese Pizza

    Why bother ordering out when you can whip up a delicious cheese pizza right in your own kitchen? This one is just like your favorite delivery pizza but on a completely different level of deliciousness.

    There is nothing that we like doing more than assisting you in the preparation of the most delicious homemade pizza imaginable. We have many different ideas for pizza toppings, ranging from the traditional Margherita pizza to the more modern taco pizza. But, there is something so gratifying about a traditional cheese pizza.

    This is the cheese pizza that you normally get delivered, but it’s exactly one million times better. The pizza sauce has an intense tomato flavor, the cheese has an intense cheesy flavor, and the crust has the ideal amount of chewiness. Do you want to know our less-known facts?

    How to make the best cheese pizza

    Homemade Cheese Pizza

    This cheese pizza has exactly the same flavor as what you’d expect from a traditional pie, but it’s a million times better. It is smart enough for adults to enjoy it, yet all children adore it. We tried this cheese pizza out on a few different children in our lives, and all of them gave it an enthusiastic thumbs up. The following features elevate this cheese pizza above the standard pizza you get from the delivery place:

    5-minute pizza sauce. Have you created our original easy pizza sauce? This recipe is a classic, and you won’t believe how full of flavor it is until you try it yourself! Blend together some fire-roasted canned tomatoes with garlic, oregano, and olive oil. Blend until smooth.

    Both shredded and fresh mozzarella. What toppings are found on the pizza with the most cheese? Shredded mozzarella and fresh mozzarella! Because it is made with fresh cheese, it is extremely gooey, and the shredded cheese serves as the glue that holds everything together.

    The best pizza dough. We believe that this recipe for pizza dough is the best one that can be found on the internet. After more than a decade spent gathering advice from gourmet pizza makers, Alex and I was finally able to perfect it. Continue reading to find out more about how to make it…

    Pizza making tools

    Homemade Cheese Pizza

    It’s important to have a few instruments for creating pizza on hand if you want to produce a delicious cheese pizza. When it comes to cooking handmade pizza, we find that these two instruments are absolutely necessary. These are some suggestions that Alex and I have:

    Pizza stone: The crust of a traditional Italian pizza is made crispy on the exterior and chewy on the inside thanks to the use of a pizza stone. This is the greatest pizza stone that we’ve come across, as well as some more information on how to care for pizza stones.

    Pizza peel: What’s a pizza peel? A pizza may be easily transferred onto the sizzling pizza stone in the oven with the help of a special paddle. Either this Regular pizza peel or this Conveyor pizza peel comes highly recommended from our end.

    Use either of these pizza dough variations

    Here are a few recipes for different types of pizza dough that you might use for this cheese pizza:

    • Best Pizza Dough This is the regular pizza dough that we’ve been using for the past several years. Although we use a stand mixer to create it, you may also knead it by hand if you want.
    • The Quick Thin Crust recipe is comparable, but the resulting dough is flatter and easier to stretch out; you might use that one instead.

    What to serve with cheese pizza?

    Homemade Cheese Pizza

    At a sleepover for the cousins, Alex and I prepared and served this traditional homemade cheese pizza to our nephews and to our son Larson. It was a hit with them in every way! We served it with carrot sticks and a healthy ranch dressing (the recipe for which is below), and for the grownups, we made Strawberry Daiquiris. The following are some fantastic accompaniments that go well with pizza:

    • Simple Arugula Salad The easiest salad you’ve ever made, guaranteed! You don’t even have to create the dressing because it’s a fail-safe recipe.
    • The Spinach Apple Salad features a creamy balsamic dressing, glazed pecans, apple and pear pieces, and spinach as the main ingredient. Nobody will believe that it was put together in such a short amount of time.
    • Ranch Dressing that is Good for You It goes great with vegetable sticks! This homemade ranch is ready in only five minutes and packs a strong flavor punch.
    • Favorite Salad, Chopped An excellent salad is created when fresh vegetables, homemade Italian dressing, and grated Parmesan cheese are combined.


    • 1 ball of Best Pizza Dough (or Food Processor Dough or Thin Crust Dough)
    • ⅓ cup Easy Pizza Sauce
    • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese
    • 4 ounces (1 cup) shredded mozzarella cheese
    • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
    • Kosher salt
    • Semolina flour or cornmeal, for dusting the pizza peel


    • Prepare the pizza dough by following the directions provided in the recipe titled “Best Pizza Dough.” (The preparation time is approximately 15 minutes, and the resting time is 45 minutes.)
    • Put a pizza stone in the oven and turn the temperature up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Alternatively preheat your pizza oven (the pizza oven that we use is shown here).
    • Prepare the pizza sauce as follows: Cook up some of the Quick Pizza Sauce.
    • Make sure the toppings are ready: Cut the fresh mozzarella into cubes or shred it into smaller pieces.
    • Bake the pizza: After the oven is ready, sprinkle cornmeal or semolina flour on a pizza peel and then transfer the pizza to the oven. (If you don’t have a pizza peel, you can use a baking sheet that doesn’t have a rim or the back of a baking sheet that does have a rim. But, the expense of purchasing a pizza peel is money well spent!) Form the dough into a circle by stretching it out; for details, see “How to Stretch Pizza Dough.” The dough should be transferred to the pizza peel in a careful manner.
    • Make a thin layer of pizza sauce on top of the dough by spreading it across the surface with the back of a spoon. After spreading the chunks of fresh mozzarella cheese on the dough in an even manner, proceed to sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese over the top. Spread the garlic powder, dried oregano, and a few pinches of kosher salt over the whole surface of the chicken.
    • Make use of the pizza peel to transfer the pizza in a safe manner onto the pizza stone that has been preheated. Bake the pizza for about 5 to 7 minutes, or until both the cheese and the crust have achieved a wonderful golden brown color (or 1 minute in a pizza oven). Cut the meat into pieces, and serve it straight away.
