The first set of ingredients of the earliest pizza only composed of: tomatoes, the Italian flat bread, and cheese.

If this is your first time making pizza, one of the homemade pizza tips you can follow is to just purchase a ready made pizza dough/crust from the supermarket, and just top it with your preferred ingredients at home.

3.    If you wish to really perform the steps of how to make pizza from scratch, however, you should prepare DIY pizza crust or dough; don’t worry, there’s a recipe for this, with easy to follow steps, but remember that what takes time is kneading and rolling the dough, thus you should have the patience when preparing dough for your pizza.
