Homemade Pizza

Last night, I busted out the good old KitchenAid and endeavoured homemade pizza crust.  This is normally my husbands domain, but I thought I would give it a try.

I used the recipe from the KitchenAid mixer recipe book.  Although anything involving yeast scares me, this was actually super easy and turned out really well.  I only took a "before" baking photo, but I can assure you it was all cheesy and bubbly and amazing after baking.

Instead of typing out the whole recipe and instructions, I thought I would just post the link and then tell you how I modified it and what I used for toppings.


  • I used an equal mix of white and whole wheat flour.
  • I baked it on the pizza stone.  I heated the stone up, spread cornmeal all over the stone and then spread the dough on the stone.
  • I baked just the crust on the stone for 7-10 minutes, then added the toppings and baked for an additional 10 minutes.

I was going for sort of a tuscany vibe, but whilst still cleaning out the fridge a bit in the process.
