Here's a link for building a single porch step:
Hi Sis: You can use pavers to make steps, just be sure that your foundation, no matter what type of step you make, is secure. Dig out some dirt, at least 1/2 the thickness of the paver, pound the dirt down, put in leveling sand and pound that down, too. Then, put in your row of pavers, and use something like QUIKRETE Quick-Setting Cement (fairly inexpensive) between the sides and tops/bottoms of each stone. Follow the directions on the package. Also, have your steps tilt toward the front, very slightly, to let water run off to avoid slipping. If you need more than 1 or 2 steps, you can buy things called stringers. Here is the site for them. https://www.lowes.com/search?searchTerm=stringers
They make pre-made ones that require virtually no skill!
Hi! We purchased precast concrete for our front steps. They delivered, anchored them to our foundation wall and installed railings. As soon as nonessential businesses are allowed to reopen in Pennsylvania, we are getting a unit that is two steps down to the street from our new sidewalk. Another possibility for you is to hire a mason to build it for you. You could go with brick or concrete. It would be a small job, but still a job. Good luck!

With care and intense trepidation.
This post might be able to help you:
You can purchase pre cut stringers and treads made from pressure treated wood. Attach with metal hurricane ties.
If you only want one step you could lay a concrete block or bricks.
Build it from decking then let it dry out TleSt 6 months then stain it or paint .
If you can get hold of a railway Sleeper that would work or maybe Clinker blocks!
