    I Love Pizza!!!

    I started making pizza at home because we could not get a THICK (and flavorful) enough dough ANYWHERE. I make the dough in my bread machine with bread flour and add gluten to make it a chewier crust. Sauce is VERY important, it has to have enough garlic and tang.  I love a good...

    It's Nothing Special...except to Me.

    I love to make homemade pizza and have developed a reliance on a few certain brands.  First, I only make cheese...why ruin a good thing by adding junk on top? I use: jiffy pizza crust mix, contadina pizza sauce, mozzarella and cheddar cheese That's all.  Nothing...

    We Make It A Contest

    My family and I have a pizza contest. I will buy all kinds of different toppings and make the dough in my bread maker. The kids get a kick out of being able to play with their own dough. Everyone makes their own pizza with whatever they can think to put on it. We cut each pizza...

    Talking Pizza

    My parents got a divorce about a year ago and its been really hard. But thankfully I have pizza. Allow me to explain. My father is a very awkward man and when ever I went to see him we never had anything to say. We sat awkwardly and then said... well, I guess I should go now. So...

    I Make My Own Gluten Free Pizza

    I've tried those premade mixes from the health food stores. They always end up like a brick or rubber frisbee and taste like a shoe. I've tried one from a semi-famous pizzeria but it costs $20 for a small one and still doesn't taste right. I spent some time looking up recipes...

    Why Not?

    It's the easiest thing in the world. I believe that it's a lot cheaper than ordering pizza, and you can put on it, exactly what you want. It might take a couple more minutes, but it tastes so much better! Home-made tomato sauce, thyme, oregano, some pineapple chunks...

    Calzones

    I've made homemade pizza before many times. Today I saw the calzones episode of Seinfeld and it inspired me to make my first calzones. Pizzas and calzones are fun family projects to get your husband and or kids in the kitchen to help. They have fun making it and picking toppings...

    I Usually Cheat

    I usually cheat on making my own pizza. I'll get the basic frozen self rising dough cheese pizza and I'll decorate it. Mushrooms, hamburger meat, black olives, jalapenos, more cheese, what ever. Then I'll drizzle some olive oil on that sucker before it goes into oven. When...

    Every Saturday

    Ususally kids mix the yeast dough. I spread & sauce, Kids cheese & pepperoni. Its not the best but it saves money & the kids actually eat it. The End.

    Creative Pizza

    Making pizza is a fun family event that my children and I enjoy.  I've even had my nieces and nephews come over and they've enjoyed it as well. I don't usually make the crust.  I buy it pre-made.  All I have to do is add a little oil and water and voila! ...

    Pizza Stone!!!

    So I've had this pizza stone for a very long time and never used it, until one day when I was watching Martha Stewart, and I saw something I just had to try. It was called the Popeye Pizza. The dough recipe is by far the easiest and tastiest I have ever had in my life, and...

    Not Very Often

    I only make thin crust pizzas a couple of times a year it takes a lot of time and work to do it entirely from scratch so I make several and freeze them for later. I do however make deep dish pizzas more often as they are a big favorite of my family.
