Snow Day Completely Homemade Pizza

MOM!!!! WILL YOU FIX US SOME PIZZA???? The snow is coming down so hard that visibility is less than  4 feet. There is no pizza in the house and nothing (so you think) to make a pizza with. “We don’t have any pizza”. “You can make one! We know you can! There are mushrooms!”. What you need is Snow Day Completely Homemade Pizza!


Snow Day Pizza


Are you trapped in the house with kids and need something to do? Make Pizza! This takes some time, so I recommend to only embark on this adventure if you have an hour or so on your hands!


The results? Pretty darn good! We aren’t ready for a pizza parlor just yet – but pretty good and satisfying for a snow day completely homemade pizza dinner. Thank you internet!


No canned pizza sauce? No problem if you have some canned crushed tomatoes and other basic pantry ingredients.

Still trying for the Be prepared lasagna – I know you think it is just a tease at this point.

For the Crust- if you have pre-made crusts that works too!

  • 2 ½ Cups all purpose flour
  • 2 ¾ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbs vegetable oil
  • ¾ - 1 Cup water

For the Sauce- If you have pre-made sauce- that works too!

  • 1-2 tbs olive oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 medium onion chopped finely
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • 2 quarts crushed tomatoes
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tsp raw sugar
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • For the toppings
  • ½ cup of any desired toppings we used browned breakfast sausage, sautéed fresh mushrooms and ham
  • 1 Cup of shredded mozzarella
  • You make up your own – grilled onions, browned hamburger, grilled pineapple are some options
  • Sliced provolone cheese


  • For the crust
  • Mix all dry ingredients and add ¾ cup water and the oil. Stir (use stand mixer if you have one with the dough hook) until a ball forms. If dough is stiff – add more water. This dough will not be sticky – so do not add water until it is sticky. Turn out onto a floured surface and kneed for 3-4 minutes
  • Roll out into the desired shape and thickness (this dough will only rise a tiny bit) and is quite stretchy and requires quite a bit of rolling.
  • Bake at 400 for 5 minutes. Apply Sauce and toppings followed by cheese.
  • For the Sauce
  • Add oil to stainless steel pan over medium heat. Add garlic and chopped onions and stir. Cook until onions are soft – 4-5 minutes. Add the chicken broth. Cook until reduced by half. Add the crush tomatoes and stir. Add salt and pepper to taste as well as the sugar. Add dried oregano. Reduce heat and simmer until desired consistency. If the sauce is more lumpy than you would like – put in blender and puree. Add Basil just before applying to the pizza crust.
  • For the pizza
  • After pizza crust has baked for 5 minutes, remove and add sauce – as much as is desired and all toppings desired. Add cheese last. Once all toppings are applied – bake at 400 for 15-25 minutes


easy and delicious

Thanks for sharing the recipe! That sounds like a fun snow day activity, and running the oven will help heat up the house. I know it is March already, but I bet we will have at least 1 more cold snap before winter completely goes away.
