Make Your Own Pizza
I have to admit, it is much easier to just use a tube of pizza crust when you want to make pizza at home. It is much cheaper and healthier though to make your own. (I've used this recipe a few times, sometimes adding in some Italian herbs.) I usually go in-between though, and buy pizza crust in a baggie at Trader Joe's. It lets me skip the prep, and it's healthier than what's in the tube! I have tried a few different pizza sauce recipes, and am still searching for "the one". Sometimes I use barbecue sauce in place of a tomato sauce, and sometimes I use pesto. Once or twice I've roasted a head of garlic, then spread the roasted cloves onto the crust. Oh my was that delicious! My daughter's favorite topping is pineapple. I like anything from caramelized onion or tomato and spinach with feta to ribbons of zucchini and squash. The point of this is this - Make it your own! You can use just about anything as your sauce, and anything you'd like as your topping. You can try different cheeses. Try something new - it could be your new favorite!
