DIY School Pizza Recipe To Make The Next Time You Wa


This article will teach you how to cook a pizza on your stovetop or oven. With the right ingredients, you can make delicious pizzas at home.

Let’s face it: School pizza is unavoidable. Even if you’re lucky enough to have a school with a dining hall, the lunch pizza you get probably isn’t that great and no one will be mad if someone brings in a homemade alternative. Whether you think the sauce is too sweet or the cheese is too stringy for your taste, this made-from-scratch recipe will allow you to customize and make each slice just as you like it!

The Pizza Dough

Whether you’re making pizza for a school lunch or just because you’re craving something cheesy, this recipe is sure to please. While store-bought dough can be used in a pinch, there’s nothing like homemade pizza dough. This recipe is easy to follow and only requires a few ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen.

Once you’ve made the dough, it’s time to start prepping your toppings. If you’re feeling traditional, go for the classic combination of mozzarella cheese and tomato sauce. But don’t be afraid to get creative with your toppings! Some of our other favorite combinations include:

If you love and miss the old-school rectangle pizza, here’s the recipe:
Half sheet pan and line with parchment paper.
2 ⅔ flour
¾ cup powdered milk
2 T sugar
1 packet of quick rise yeast
1 tsp salt
1 ⅔ cup warm water (105-110 degrees)
2 T vegetable oil
½ pound ground chuck
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
1 8oz block mozzarella cheese – grated yourself (To be authentic school pizza, you must use imitation mozzarella shreds.)

The Sauce

When it comes to pizza, the sauce is everything. This DIY school pizza recipe features a delicious and easy-to-make sauce that will have your students begging for more. Combine crushed (I make the sauce the day before):
6oz can tomato paste
1 cup water
⅓ olive oil
2 cloves garlic minced
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
½ tbsp dried oregano
½ tbsp dried basil
½ tsp dried rosemary crushed
in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Spread this sauce over your favorite pizza dough recipe and top with cheese and any other toppings of your choice. Then bake according to your dough recipe’s instructions and enjoy!


Preheat the oven to 475°F. Spray the pan with Pam and lay parchment paper on top (Pam will make sticky) In a large bowl , mix flour powdered milk, sugar, powdered milk yeast, salt, and flour – mix until well blended.
Pour oil into warm drinking water (110-115 degrees) and pour it into the mixture.
Stir the mixture with a wooden spoon until the batter is formed – don’t be concerned about lumps. You just need to avoid dry spots
Distribute dough in the pan with fingers until it’s even. If dough refuses to cooperate, allow it to rest for 5 minutes before trying again.
Bake the crust only for 8-10 minutes. Remove from the oven and put aside.
The meats should be cooked until they resemble crumbles. Set aside and rinse the excess water.
Take out the pizza sauce to bake it until a little bit and then assemble:
Sauce spread over the crust
Sprinkle the meats
Sprinkle cheese
Bake at 475°F for 8-10 minutes, until cheese, melts and starts to brown.
Take the oven out – allow to cool for 5 minutes
Slice into pieces and then serve!
