    Hello,

     

    As Mike said, it seems what you created is web part page.

     

    If so, I understand your requirement as you want to make the web part page as your home page of every new site you will create in the future. If I misunderstand you please feel free to let me know.

     

    You can do it within 2 steps:

     

    1.       Open your site in Sharepoint designer. Copy your custom web part page from library to the root path. Then right click on the page and click “set as home page”.

    2.       Go to site settings in UI. Save your site as a site template.

     

    After that, you can create new site with the web part page as home page by choosing the new site template.

     

    Hope that’s what you need.
