Below are the ingredients that you will need to prepare this homemade pizza recipe:
- 1 cup warm water
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1/4 cup olive oil
For the pizza sauce, you’ll need:
- 1 14 oz. can tomato sauce
- 2 teaspoons dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon sugar
And for the toppings, you will use:
- 2 cups part-skim mozzarella cheese
- Any other desired toppings, such as vegetables or meats
Note that this recipe includes dairy, but if you’re looking for a dairy-free option, feel free to use vegan cheese or cheeseless pizza. You can also make a white pizza by skipping the sauce and just using olive oil and garlic as your base.
The Recipe How-To
To make the perfect pizza dough, I start by combining 1 tsp of sugar and 1 packet of active dry yeast in a large mixing bowl. Then, I add 1 1/4 cups of warm water and whisk until combined.
After that, I sift in 4 cups of all-purpose flour and 1 tsp of salt. Using a wooden spoon, I mix everything together until it forms a shaggy dough.
I then add 1/4 cup of olive oil and knead the mixture for about 10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic. Cover the bowl with a damp cloth and set it aside to rise in a warm spot for about an hour.
Assembling the Pizza
Once the dough has doubled in size, divide it into two equal pieces. Roll out each piece to form a 12-inch crust. Place the crusts onto baking sheets that have been lined with parchment paper.
Preheat your oven to 450°F. Spread each crust with homemade pizza sauce followed by a sprinkle of dried oregano, then top with part-skim mozzarella cheese and any other toppings you like.
Baking the Pizza
Bake each pizza for about 15-20 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and crispy.
DIY Pizza Kits
If you want to make your own pizza but don’t have enough time? You can easily prepare homemade pizza kits! After you prepare the pizza dough, cut it into individual portions and wrap them in plastic wrap.
Then store these wrapped dough balls in an airtight container or in zippered plastic bags inside the fridge where they can last for up to 3 days or even longer if stored inside the freezer.
When you are ready to use them, all you need is just to take them out from the fridge or freezer to defrost and rest before spreading them with pizza sauce and toppings you prefer.
Now, let’s enjoy making homemade easy low-fat kosher-dairy pizza!
Substitutions and Variations
Now that you have the base recipe, it’s time to get creative and make it your own. Here, I’ll provide you with some substitutions and variations that you can try out to add variety and excitement to your pizza night.
For the cheese lovers out there, instead of using part-skim mozzarella cheese, you can try shredded or sliced regular mozzarella cheese for a more indulgent flavor. You could also experiment with other types of cheese like feta or goat cheese if you’re feeling adventurous.
If you’re looking to reduce the carb content of your pizza, substituting all-purpose flour with almond flour or coconut flour is a great option. Alternatively, if you want to increase the protein content of your pizza, you could try using whole wheat flour or even chickpea flour.
For a vegan option, skip the cheese entirely and load up on veggies like bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, and zucchini. You can even use vegan cheese or a cashew-based cream sauce for added creaminess.
Looking for an even healthier option? Consider trying a non-dairy yogurt-based pizza sauce instead of traditional tomato sauce. You could also swap out your toppings for nutrient-dense options like kale, spinach, and artichokes.
If you’re short on time but still want to enjoy homemade pizza flavor, consider using store-bought pizza crust instead of making it from scratch. You can find whole wheat or gluten-free options in most grocery stores.
Whatever substitutions or variations you decide on trying out, don’t be afraid to get creative and have fun with it! Pizza night should be a time to experiment and indulge in your culinary exploration.
Serving and Pairing
Now that your delicious low-fat homemade pizza is ready, it’s time to enjoy it. Slice the pizza into 8 even pieces and serve warm. This pizza is the perfect meal for a casual dinner with friends and family or a fun movie night.
To pair with this pizza, I recommend keeping it simple with a mixed greens salad on the side. The fresh, crisp flavors of the salad will complement the hearty taste of the pizza crust and tomato sauce without overpowering it.
For those who like to indulge a little, adding a glass of red wine is a tasty option. A merlot or pinot noir will enhance the robust flavors of the tomato sauce and cheese in the pizza.
If you prefer something non-alcoholic, try serving a refreshing soda or sparkling water to balance out the savory flavors of the pizza.
Don’t hesitate to get creative with your toppings either! This recipe can be adapted to your liking, giving you endless possibilities for pairing with different drinks or sides.
Overall, this dish is sure to please any crowd and make for a memorable meal. Enjoy your low-fat homemade easy pizza and savor every bite!
Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating
One of the best things about this low-fat homemade easy pizza recipe is that it can be made ahead of time, stored, and reheated without losing its delicious taste and texture. Whether you want to prepare it for a future meal or save leftover slices for later, this recipe makes it easy and convenient.
To make this recipe ahead of time, simply prepare the pizza as directed in the recipe how-to section but stop right before adding the toppings. Cover it tightly with plastic wrap and store it in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. When you’re ready to use it, let the dough come to room temperature for 30 minutes before adding your favorite toppings and baking it in the oven.
Storing leftover pizza is also just as easy. Once your pizza has cooled completely, wrap each slice individually with plastic wrap and store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. You can also freeze leftover slices by wrapping them tightly with plastic wrap followed by aluminum foil. Frozen pizza slices can be reheated in either an oven or air fryer.
To reheat your refrigerated pizza, preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Place your slices on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 8-10 minutes until heated through. You can also reheat your leftover pizza in an air fryer at 375°F (190°C) for roughly 6 minutes.
With these make-ahead, storing, and reheating tips, you can enjoy delicious homemade pizza anytime at your convenience. Just follow these simple steps for perfect results every time!
Tips for Perfect Results
When it comes to making the perfect low-fat homemade pizza, there are some key tips that can help ensure your dough is just the right texture and your toppings are cooked to perfection. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when making this easy pizza recipe.
Firstly, be sure to preheat your oven before getting started. This will ensure your pie cooks evenly and your crust turns out crispy and golden brown. A hot oven also helps to prevent any sogginess in the center of the pizza, which can be a problem if the temperature is too low.
Another important tip is to use part-skim mozzarella cheese instead of full-fat mozzarella. It still melts beautifully and adds that classic cheesy flavor without all the extra calories and fat. And if you’re looking for a dairy-free option, try using vegan cheese instead!
When it comes to making the dough, keep in mind that active dry yeast is key for achieving that light, airy texture that we all love in pizza crust. Be sure to activate it in warm water with a bit of sugar before adding it to the flour mixture. And when kneading the dough, use all-purpose flour for best results.
If you’re struggling with getting your toppings just right, try precooking any meats or veggies beforehand. This way, they will be fully cooked by the time your crust is ready and won’t have any raw or undercooked bits.
And finally, don’t be afraid to experiment with different flavor combinations! Whether you’re into classic margherita or something more unconventional like chicken pizza or veggie pizza, there’s no wrong way to make homemade pizza. Just remember these tips for perfect results every time.
So, what are you waiting for? Grab the ingredients and start making your delicious low-fat homemade easy pizza!
