Making pizza at home doesn’t have to be a complicated endeavor and when done right, the payoff is huge: delicious, cheesy pizza in the comfort of your home.  Customize at-home pies with your favorite sauce and toppings and the pizza opportunities are endless. I love looking at fancy pizza restaurant menus to get unique topping inspiration to recreate at home. Some current favorites: mushrooms, fontina, thyme and pesto, and caramelized onions, goat cheese and parm.

With a quick trip to the grocery store, you can buy everything you need to make excellent pizza at home. It’s way better than any boxed frozen pizza you can buy and really not that much work. Plus, it’s always a fun family or date night activity too. Make sure to blast your oven to the highest temperature it will go for a nice crispy pizzeria-style crust. 

Buying a high-quality store-bought dough can make your pizza-making experience even easier and there are some excellent dough options out there. To narrow down your search, we rounded up some of our favorite store-bought pizza doughs to set you on the right pizza path.
