Easy Homemade Pizza Recipe

My family loves pizza!  If I let them, they’d eat pizza for breakfast, lunch and dinner every single day of the week.  I like pizza just as much as the next person, but I like being able to customize my pizza. So, I decided we would make our own pizza at home.  And that is exactly what we did!  Oh, and did I mention it was super easy and didn’t involve yeast or rising or whatever that’s called.

Oh. My. Gosh.  This pizza was so yummy!  I was able to put what toppings I wanted, how much I wanted of each topping and I enjoyed every second of every bite.

Easy Homemade Pizza

  • 1 1/2 cups Original Bisquick mix
  • 1/3 cup very hot water
  • 1 can (8 ounces) pizza sauce
  • 1/3  package sliced turkey pepperoni
  • 1/2 cup sliced fresh mushroom
  • 1  cup shredded cheese
  • 1/2 can of chopped black olives
  1. Heat oven to 450ºF. Grease 12-inch pizza pan or baking pan. Stir together Bisquick mix and very hot water; beat until soft dough forms.
  2. Press dough in pizza pan or if you’re using a baking pan like I did, just press dough out into a thin circle. Spread pizza sauce over dough. I did not use all of the sauce because I don’t like my pizza really saucy. Top with remaining ingredients.
  3. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is bubbly.

I was really unsure how the crust would turn out but I was pleasantly surprised and I really don’t see a need to purchase prepackaged pizza again. We can each make a pizza just exactly how we want it!  If you don’t like mushrooms or black olives, simply change them out for something else such as bell peppers and onions.

    Crystal, you’re killing me. I love homemade pizza, but my thighs won’t. And this recipe looks awesome.

    What to do, what to do……

    I like that you found Turkey Pepperoni…I have not even seen this before. I have to avoid it and would think the turkey would be much less greasy. We’d have to put double the black olives and mushrooms on ours! Thanks for yet another great family recipe…quick to make and I am sure quicker to eat. LOL!

    Yum WE love doing a pizza night with mini pizza so the kids can make their own. I wanted to thank you for choosing me as a “tender 8” as well!

    That looks DELICIOUS!! I also like to buy the frozen bread dough and use that as crust, but haven’t gotten good at making it thin enough for my liking. Will try your version, thanks!

    That looks so good. We are making pizza roll ups later this week, but maybe we can give this one a try next week!

    I am bookmarking this recipe. I have only made homemade pizza crust once and want to try again. I normally but the pre-made pizza crusts, but want to make my own.

    we make homemade pizza too – but I do use my bread machine and a yeast recipe – it’s so yummy – and a LOT cheaper than eating out.

    Yum! This sounds really good. We do our own pizza too, although I use the individual mix packages (only requires 5 minutes of rising while you’re doing other stuff) but this seems like it would be much cheaper. Was the crust really dense or did it turn out light?

    that is my kind of pizza

    Mmmmmmmmmmmmm….I love black olives but chopped ones look like bugs 🙂 My kids refused to eat them because of it.

    My family is the same way when it comes to pizza! I had never thought of making dough out of bisquick. I’ll have to remember this when I don’t have time to make my own! Thanks for sharing.
