Jessica Alba shares the pesto pizza recipe that she, her husband + kids love.
If you prefer a pizza with red sauce, Jessica also shared her easy homemade tomato sauce: Simmer two pounds chopped tomatoes, a couple of sliced garlic cloves, olive oil, salt, a pinch of oregano and sugar for 30 minutes. Purée.
More topping ideas from Jessica:
Jessica's prep tip if you're cooking for kids: Cut dough into shapes with cookie cutters before cooking.
Mix a packet of instant yeast and 1/2 cup of flour in warm water. Let sit for 15 minutes until it all turns spongy ("proofed").
When yeast has proofed, add remaining flour slowly, 1/2 cup at a time, mixing thoroughly with wooden spoon as you go. When all flour is mixed in, add salt.
Knead wet, tacky dough into ball with one hand; move to a floured cutting board or wood surface; knead with 2 hands for 8-10 minutes. Put kneaded dough in a large bowl, coat with olive oil, cover with plastic wrap, stick it in the fridge for at least 8 hours and up to 30 hours.
