Homemade Pizza Night {recipe}

Pizza is a food that almost everyone likes to eat. A homemade pizza evening is fun for all ages and is a great way to spend time with your children, talk about their school activities, stimulate creativity and incorporate healthy ingredients into their diet. You can get you children excited about Pizza Night by hanging up the recipe on the fridge like a restaurant menu. 

Prepare all of the ingredients (flour, yeast, salt, olive oil and water) or you can buy pre-made pizza dough from a grocery store or even from your local pizza place. I like to buy whole-wheat dough from my nearest Trader Joes, but here is a recipe for whole wheat pizza crust. The kids Homemade Pizza Partywill love kneading and rolling out the dough.

Whole Wheat Pizza Dough:

  • Ingredients:
  • 3/4 cup lukewarm water
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour


Stir water, yeast, and sugar in a large bowl; let stand until the yeast has dissolved, about 5 minutes.  Stir in flours until the dough begins to form.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface, and knead until smooth and elastic (it’ll take about ten minutes.)  Spray a bowl with oil spray, and place the dough ball in it to rise.

Cover the bowl with a clean towel, and keep in a warm, draft-free place until doubled in size (about 1 hour.)

Fast prep tipmake dough in advance, then refrigerate for up to a day, or freeze un-risen dough in a tightly wrapped plastic wrap, for up to 3 months.  Defrost in the fridge overnight, and then let dough stand at room temperature for 1 hour before using it.

Serving Size: This recipe is enough for 4 “pan pizzas” or one extra large – double if making more.  After you’ve topped the dough according to your own tastes, bake in a 425 degree oven for about 10-12 minutes.

Now get all of your favorite ingredients together and put them in a bunch of bowls or trays. Choose a bunch of fresh vegetables, meats and cheeses. I love to have fresh mozzarella, spinach, peppers, mushrooms, and fresh tomatoes, but if your family had varying tastes, you can let everyone make their own and all will be happy. Also, have your kids prepare a bunch of their own personal pizzas and then you can freeze them for later.

I am confident that your kids will love “Homemade Pizza Night”  much better than delivery pizza. Healthy and economical. BON APPETIT!
