Family night pizza

This family night pizza is very flavorful and crispy. Experiment with cheese and add more garlic for an extra flavor. The main secret to this pizza is the great crust. It has crunch, too, but you can fold it in half. The flavor adds to toppings that you want on your pizza. The recipe is a classic pizza with a twist.

The pizza is thin so you don’t need to spend time waiting for the dough to rise. You can let it rest for 10 minutes and continue cooking the pizza. It requires 10 minutes to cook in the oven, and you will have a delicious dinner ready.

In this recipe, we keep pizza toppings simple, you probably have most of them in the fridge. You don’t want to overload the crust, it’s thin and delicious with a bit of added flavor. We chose 5 types of cheese and topped the crust with minced garlic that took the pizza over the top.

For the crust:

  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp active dry yeast
  • 1/3 whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tbsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tbsp dried thyme
  • 1/4 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tbsp salt
  • 1/4 tbsp dried rosemary

For the topping:

  • 1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan
  • 1/2 cup marinara
  • 2-4 tbsp feta cheese crumbles
  • 2-4 tbsp blue cheese crumbles
  • 4 gloves of minced garlic


  1. Start by heating up the oven to 450F. Put a pizza stone inside.

  2. Combine oil, water and yeast. Add herbs, flours and salt, wait for a couple of minutes. Stir gently. Knead until smooth. Wait a little bit more, your dough will become very soft. If you don't have much time, you can continue immediately.

  3. Cut a parchment paper. You need it to be around 15 inches long. Put it on a kitchen table, roll the dough out with a pin (you can use the glass bottle if you don't have the pin). It should be thin.

  4. Place dough on a pizza stone for 5 minutes.

  5. The dough will form a pocket. Remove it from the oven, place on a pan, remove the paper. Be careful as the steam inside is hot. Press the pocket so you can put toppings on the pizza. Evenly spread marinara sauce.

  6. Sprinkle with 5 cheeses and garlic. Cook in the oven for 5 more minutes. Cheese should melt evenly.

  7. Remove your pizza from the oven and cut it. For a bit of extra flavor you can serve it with flakes.
