Creating Your Own Pizza

My kids have both always loved pizza. We learned some fantastic simple pizza recipes over the years. It can get very costly to keep ordering pizza from the local take out places. So, we started making our own pizzas and today, 20 years later, my kids still like the homemade pizza over the take out pizza.

There are several thoughts for crusts. We have used bagels as the crust. We’ve used large bagels, small bagels, onion bagels, jalapeno bagels, cheese bagels and even egg bagels. We cut them in half, add sauce, add cheese and then add any toppings we want.

We have also used english muffins for the crust of the pizza. We like the pizza crunchy, so we always toast the english muffins before adding the sauce. As above, we add sauce, and then we add cheese and any other toppings we want. We buy pineapple chunks, black chopped olives and even use leftover cubed chicken pieces.

We have also used refrigerated biscuits as our crust. Just unroll them and flatten them out on a cookie sheet. I bake them so the dough is not raw then add your sauce and toppings and then place them under the boiler. These make wonderful mini pizzas with a very light tasting crust.

We also have used different sauces on our pizzas. We use pizza sauce, alfredo sauce and barbeque sauce. A restaurant chain here in California is well-known for their barbeque chicken pizza. We can make that also. Instead of pizza sauce, we place barbeque sauce on the english muffin or the bagel, then add the cheese and chicken cubes.

If you like vegetables, you can add cut up onions, cut up bell peppers, sliced zucchini or any other vegetable your family enjoys.

You can also add meats. Sliced pepperoni is often a kids’ favorite. You can also brown hamburger meat to add to your pizza. If I use hamburger meat, I let it marinate for a small while in the pizza sauce so that the meat has flavor.

We’ve had a lot of fun trying different cheeses and different toppings on our pizzas. Question the kids what they want and let them help with the creation.

Add a salad and you have a fantastic inexpensive meal.

Bon Appetite!!
