Looking for a simple meal to make on a weeknight? While homemade pizza doesn't always sound too simple, in practice, it couldn't be more easy. To make this recipe extra delicious, Basil essential oil are used to both flavor the sauce and to support cardiovascular and nervous system health.* Oregano also offers powerful antioxidants if you choose to add it to the sauce.
2½ cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon olive oil
⅔ cup warm water
1 15-ounce can tomato sauce
1 6-ounce can tomato paste
2 garlic cloves, peeled
1 tablespoon dried oregano
2 teaspoons dried basil
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon granulated sugar
1 drop Basil oil
1 toothpick Oregano oil (optional)
- Combine the all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
- Add the olive oil and water a little at a time and knead until a smooth dough forms. The dough should not be sticky. If it gets too sticky, add a bit more flour and knead the dough.
- In a food processor or blender, combine all sauce ingredients except essential oils. Pulse until smooth.
- Dip a toothpick in the bottle of Oregano and swirl it in the sauce. This is a very strong oil-- use it sparingly.
- Roll out dough and use a medium or large heart shaped cookie cutter. Add the sauce and your favorite pizza toppings before baking.
- For mini pizzas, bake at 350°F for 7-10 minutes.
Tip: Substitute Oregano oil with Marjoram for a milder, different flavor.
