All pizza ingredients needed for recipe. Dough, Sauce, Cheese, Toppings of your choice.



Publix Italian Dough

Ahh…the dough! It’s quite possibly the most important of all the ingredients we’ll be using for our pizza. Now, you may be saying…can’t I just get any old pre-made dough and move on to the next part? No way! We want your pizza to be top notch, and the best way to get the ultimate flavor is by using none other than our Publix Italian Dough from our Publix Bakery. Our Publix dough is made fresh every day, making it the ultimate base for our pizza. If you’re looking for other ways to use pizza dough, check out our blog about repurposing our Publix Italian Dough!



Publix Pizza Sauce

You can’t have a good pizza without a solid base. For this specific pizza, we’re going to keep it simple. There are a million different ways you can make a pizza, but we’re focusing on the classic. No olive oil, no truffle oil or pesto needed… we’re sticking with a basic Pizza Sauce. Our pizza sauce offers a classic flavor you may remember from your childhood, and can be found in our stores near the pasta sauces.



Publix Shredded 2% Mozzarella Cheese

We’ve saved the best for last, and the final and most enjoyable ingredient is (drum roll please)… that’s right, you guessed it! Mozzarella CHEESE! Now, before your family eats the whole bag, we have to get it on the pizza! We know you’re hungry, so we’ve made it easy by providing shredded cheese. It’s easy being cheesy. (See what we did there?)

Now that we have all of our ingredients lined up, it’s time to make this delicious 3-ingredient pizza.

  1. Set dough out at room temperature for at least an hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F. Flour hands lightly and pat dough evenly into lightly greased or nonstick pizza pan. (Or turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and roll to desired thinness).
  3. Top crust with desired amount of pizza sauce and 1 cup mozzarella cheese.
  4. Bake 18 to25 minutes (depending on thickness of pizza) or until crust is golden, cheese is melted and it is thoroughly heated. Let stand five minutes; slice, serve and enjoy!



Well, there you have it! Celebrate National Pizza Day in style and in flavor with a homemade, delicious pizza! Share your #NationalPizzaDay creations with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
