Homemade Pepperoni Pizza
This homemade pepperoni pizza is perfect for pizza night! We use the best homemade pizza crust, however there is a secret to making amazing pizza at home! That is how you cook it! Of course you also need to have an amazing pizza crust, which is why when we make pizza at home we make our crust from scratch. Sometimes though, we change it up and make cauliflower pizza crust or portobello mushroom pizzas, either way it is safe to say we are a pizza loving family!
The best way to cook homemade pizza is on a pizza stone or on a Big Green Egg Grill. My husband loves to cook this pizza right on our big green egg grill so it gets a nice crispy crust.
If you don’t have a grill with a pizza stone there are a lot of different ones, that will work on different grills on Amazon. You can also use a pan like this one as well and bake this homemade pizza in the oven. Both of these will give you a crispy crust, but we prefer to cook our pizza on the grill.
The great thing about making pizza at home is that the whole family can get involved. My kids love to help make the pizzas so dinner becomes a nice family night activity that we all enjoy.

To cook your pizza on the grill you are going to need a pizza stone. Turn on your grill and then close the lid and heat the grill until it reaches 425 degrees. Then bake pizza on the grill on top of the pizza stone until your pizza is done cooking.
