My husband and I love pizza, but hate waiting for delivery and don’t always feel like driving to get it. What’s a person to do? I mean, of course it’s obvious — make your own. We made the decision recently to make our own pizza. We are trying to eat healthy and it was a way to choose what we put into our mouths.
We chose fresh and some pre-made ingredients, but you can totally use all fresh. I’ve always liked the bite that fresh spinach gives to pizza so of course we had to have it on our pizza. We also wanted bell peppers, onions (I love onions). The mushrooms and black olives were canned and bought from my local Food Lion store.
I preferred Boboli because the crust was thick, which is the kind of crust we like and it was available at grocery store. I bought the Inspirations Neapolitan pizza sauce on sale. It was a closeout item and only cost me 78 cents. I bought two jars.
We chose a pizza cheese blend and a pre-made pizza crust that only took 10 minutes to bake. The only effort really was chopping the vegetables.
Creating a family pizza night doesn’t have to be hard or expensive. We made two pizzas and had plenty of leftover sauce for two more pizzas later in the week. We had a couple of slices and watched a great movie on Netflix.
