Build Your Perfect Pizza

Build your perfect pizza

Next time you’re craving pizza, try making your own at home with ingredients we can deliver right to your doorstep. Making your own pizza is simple, and it allows you complete control over the ingredients and toppings that go on your pie. You can even make individual serving pizzas and let each person build their own, forever silencing disputes over whether or not pineapple belongs on a pizza.

You don’t need a specialty oven or fancy gadgets, and the topping possibilities are endless! (We share three of our favorites below.) And hey, there’s nothing more satisfying than eating a fresh, delicious pizza that you made yourself. 

Pick Your Pizza Crust

Get started by rolling out Essential Baking Company’s dough ball or save yourself some time with either the ready-to-heat-and-eat thin crust or take & bake garlic bread

Add the Sauce

Next, add Cucina Fresca's Marinara, a classic red sauce that's rich in flavor and color, or Tutta Bella's Rustic Marinara, which captures the essence of Neapolitan cooking: simple, fresh, and flavorful. For a delicious alternative, try Cucina Fresca's creamy Alfredo Sauce.

The Cheese 

Sprinkle with Tillamook's Shredded Mozzarella or find a new favorite in our cheese category.

The Toppings

Finally, load it with all of your favorite meat and veggie toppings - from Coro's Sliced Pepperoni and Carso's Diced Grilled Chicken Breast to cremini mushrooms and leafy spinach.

And Bake (or Grill)!

Bake until the crust is golden and the cheese is melted. [Tip: The hotter the oven, the better the pizza! Pre-heat your oven between 450-500F.)

During warmer months, you can enjoy homemade pizza without using your oven -- instead, try grilling your pizza. Cooking pizza directly over a flame gives grilled pizza a little bit of smoky char, similar to wood-fired or coal-fired pizza.

To make grilled pizza, you want to preheat your grill and get it very hot (again,  450-500F) for the best results. Use a pizza stone, cookie sheet, or foil if you have it available to help prevent the dough from sticking to the grill grate. Grill the pizza with the grill lid closed to mimic an enclosed oven.

Veggie Pizza

Pepperoni Pizza

Ingredients spread on wooden board to make pepperoni pizza

Pepperoni pizza with a garlicky twist! Instead of the typical pizza crust, we used Essential Baking Company's Take & Bake Garlic Bread as the base. Then added a rich marinara sauce and piled it with pepperoni, grilled onions, and lots of cheese.

Chicken Alfredo Pizza

We saved our favorite for last. Swapping marinara for a rich and creamy alfredo sauce is an easy, delicious upgrade. Plus, with Essential Baking Company's Ready-to-Heat Thin Pizza Crust, you can have dinner on the table in 30 minutes.
