Who doesn’t love pizzas? Originally from Italy, this flat dough keeps rolling and conquering hungry bellies. This comfort food is one of the easiest choices when we talk about house parties, casual get-together, and even a movie night at home.
Usually composed of dough, tomato sauce and cheese, the wide spectrum of options for toppings makes pizza a very flexible food that is able to conform to different cultures. Because of its adaptability, it is easily embraced by many palates around the globe.
Pizzas are usually oven-baked, but they can also be pan-fried. If you want to customize your own pizza flavor, you can actually make one in the comfort of your home, especially now that most of us really have no choice but to stay at home. Ready-made pizza dough crusts and ready-made pizza sauce are available at supermarkets. But it’s cool to learn how to prepare your pizza from scratch.
Here are some of the homemade pizza recipes that you can try at home, even without an oven. Have fun whipping out your own version of pizza!
