How To Make Homemade Pizza Crust At Home

Homemade pizza crust is really delicious. It is fresh and becomes crunchy when baked. You can add the toppings of your choice to it and bake your favorite pizza.

One day, I was craving pizza at midnight. All the pizza stores were closed at that time. So, I decided to take the matter into my own hands and make it all by myself. I ended up making the whole pizza. It was one of the best pizzas I ever had. The crust was the best thing about it.

To make homemade pizza dough, add flour, yeast, sugar, salt, oil, and water to the bowl. Mix it and knead it until it is shiny and smooth. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it rise. Then, knead it and form small dough balls. Roll a dough ball into a 12-inch circle. Fold its sides and poke with a fork. Prebake it for 5 minutes. Then, add toppings of your choice and bake. 

This was just an overview of the recipe. Find the complete recipe below. But before going to the full recipe, do check out other bread recipes as well.

2. Pumpernickel Bread– Pumpernickel Bread is made with a high proportion of rye flour and wheat flour. It differs from rye bread as Rye bread is made with rye flour with the addition of different grains in it.

3. Corn Pone– Corn pone is made without milk and eggs. It can be baked or fried. The ingredients are simple and easily available. It is easy to make corn pones at home and it takes less than an hour to make them.

4. Rosca de Reyes– Rosca means ‘wreath’ and Reyes means ‘king.’ So, Rosca de Reyes means ‘King’s Wreath’ when translated. That is why the bread is shaped like a wreath.
