In this post I am going to show you how to make homemade Supreme Pizza. If you didn’t know, pizza is one of my all time favorite things to eat! And I actually consider it healthy, while many people don’t. How is pizza healthy? First of all, it is if you are making your own homemade pizza from scratch with organic ingredients and balancing it with fresh veggies and protein. So, that’s what I do!
I have been making pizzas for a long time. I even worked at a pizza place in high school, slanging pizzas every day after school. So, I’ve had a lot of practice making, topping, and baking pizzas. And, Supreme Pizza is one of the most classic pizzas. I love making Supreme Pizza as it’s loaded with protein and lots of veggies. I’m using my classic Thin Crust Pizza Dough recipe for the crust, and entirely organic toppings! Get the recipe below and learn how to make my homemade Supreme Pizza.
Tips for Making the Best Supreme Pizza
• Make your pizza dough at least 24 to 48 hours in advance of when you plan to make the pizza. I know this may seem annoying, but trust me it’s worth it!
• You can bake this pizza on a baking sheet with parchment paper or on a pizza stone. The pizza stone I have can be found here. And it works in the oven and also on the grill!
• This recipe is for one 8-inch pizza. The pizza dough recipe makes two 8-inch pizza doughs. You can make both at one time (just double the topping ingredients) or you can save a dough for the following day or in a couple days as the dough stays good for a week in the fridge.
• I also bought a pizza peel. I find the stainless steel pizza peels are the best. And if you are going to make pizza on the regular, it’s an inexpensive investment that can make pizza making much easier!
• Don’t over sauce your pizza. It seems like you may not be putting enough sauce on, but trust me this dough cannot handle a ton of sauce or it becomes soggy. So, the key to crispy and chewy dough is less sauce!
• Don’t put too much cheese on your pizza. I know, it’s difficult to do as you just think the more the better. If you put too much cheese on top of your pizza, it can become soggy because this pizza is on the smaller side and it doesn’t bake for very long. So if it seems like not enough to your eye when dressing the pizza, trust me it is!
• You can reheat extra pizza in the oven or in your air fryer for easy leftovers!
Why go organic?
You may be wondering why I push organic ingredients for everything, even savory and healthy dishes. Organic ingredients go beyond just health and wellness, and contribute so much to the taste and flavor of a recipe. So, if you think that you’re making something healthy and buying fruits, veggies, or meats so maybe you don’t need to spend the extra to go organic here – let me sway your thinking.
Organic ingredients are made in a more pure way, therefore using no additives, no GMOs, and minimal ingredients. This really allows the true ingredients to shine – and because of that their flavor shines through. Therefore, organic ingredients are more flavorful than their non organic counterparts. So, just because it’s already a healthy recipe, or you’re already buying good for you ingredients – it doesn’t mean you can skip organic! Trust me here, and make the switch. Your body and your taste buds will thank you!
So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
Homemade Supreme Pizza
Thin Curst Pizza Dough
1/4 cup organic tomato basil sauce
1 1/4 cups organic shredded mozzarella cheese
10 slices Organic Valley Summer Sausage
1/4 organic green bell pepper, sliced
2 slices organic red onion, diced
8 organic black olives, sliced
Preheat the oven to 550°F and place pizza stone inside. Or, alternatively line a baking sheet with parchment paper if not using pizza stone.
Divide pizza dough into two portions. Reserve one portion in the fridge for later (or double toppings recipe above to make both now).
On a floured surface, roll out or use your hands and stretch the pizza dough. Generously flour your pizza peel. Or alternatively, if using the baking sheet, grease the parchment paper very well with olive oil and a sprinkle of flour.
Place pizza dough on pizza peel or baking sheet. Top with sauce going all the way to the edges edges (trust me here, as it bakes in!). Top with three-quarters of the cheese, sausage, bell peppers, onions, and olives. Top with the remaining cheese.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and lightly browned.
Remove from oven and allow to rest for a few minutes. Top with fresh grated parmesan.
