And that’s just what we did. It was pizza night for my family and I and we spent the evening chopping up our toppings, slathering our sauce and sprinkling our cheese. My brother and sister-in-law had a box full of par-baked pizza crusts just waiting to be topped with all sorts of delicious pizza goodness.
We made 7 different pizzas with varying combinations of pineapple, black olives, mushrooms, green pepper, and diced tomatoes. The cheese was mozzarella and the sauce was a garlic marinara pasta sauce, both of which made for perfect pizzas. My personal favorites were the mushroom and black olive or the pineapple pizzas, though many of the others made for very pretty presentations.
You can see the artistic display my brother was going for in his pineapple green pepper pizza. A little bit of color goes a long way.
Since the crust was par-baked, it only took about 10-15 minutes before we could indulge in pizza oblivion. Of course we waited for all 7 pizzas to be done before we actually ate them, which let me tell you was no easy task! I can only imagine how difficult it is to work in a pizza parlor, smelling pizza all day and not being able to eat it.
But making pizza yourself is something I highly recommend. Homemade pizza is just that much more delicious. So here are some recipes to help you on your way:
