7 Easy and Fun Pizza Recipes!

PIZZA!!!! That’s the only word I tend to hear these days whenever I ask my husband and Kenya what they want for dinner. Our newest Sunday night tradition has become making homemade pizzas together as a family, and it’s so much fun. One of Kenya’s favorite parts is getting to choose the toppings for his side of the pie. We’ve even found that foods he normally won’t eat on their own become totally appealing to him when tossed on his pizza.

From mixing the pizza dough to pulling that fresh and hot pie from the oven, here are some easy and fun recipes to get your family even more excited about this most beloved of family traditions: Pizza Night!

  • White Whole Wheat Pizza Dough 1 of 7
    White Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
    Start pizza night off right with thisHealthier Pizza Dough. White wheat is in fact a naturally colorless whole wheat which has virtually the same nutritional benefits of the traditional whole wheat you are used to. Plus it has a milder flavor than whole wheat, making it more appealing to people accustomed to the taste of refined flour.
  • The Mother of all Pizza Sauces 2 of 7
    The Mother of all Pizza Sauces
    Not Sneaky Veggie Pizza Sauce. If you're the parent of a picky or challenging eater, this Veggie Pizza Sauce is for you. It's basically a variety of cooked and pureed vegetables, but it tastes just like the sauce you get in your favorite pizzeria. While it is right at home on top of a crisp pizza dough, it's also perfect on pasta, rice or even quinoa. I find it so versatile in fact, that I usually make a double batch and freeze what I don't need so I can easily reheat it for dinner next week. Or next month.
  • Pizza Balls 3 of 7
    Pizza Balls
    Pizza Balls. The portioning is smaller than a big slice of pizza and they're easy (and fun) for little hands to hold. I also find them a bit less messy than slices that can drip cheese and sauce everywhere. When these pizza balls are piping hot, the little spheres pull apart to reveal gooey melted cheese and whatever toppings you can think of to put inside. They're great for dinner, to put in the lunchbox or even for when you need an afternoon snack that will sate your kids without stuffing them before dinner.
  • Pizza Pinwheels 4 of 7
    Pizza Pinwheels
    These Pizza Pinwheels are really like a pizza "sandwich" because the filling is savory, kind of like a ham and cheese sandwich, but much cooler looking. They almost dare you not to eat them. It's also a versatile recipe in that you can substitute your fillings to fit your mood. Whether you decide to replace the ham with turkey or chicken or even go with just traditional red sauce and cheese, these Pizza Pinwheels will have your kids coming home from school asking for more!
  • Hawaiian Pizza Pockets 5 of 7
    Hawaiian Pizza Pockets
    These Hawaiian Pizza Pockets are much healthier and cost effective than those store-bought freezer variety. If you need to have frozen pizza pockets on hand, just make a big batch of these and then freeze them!
  • Pizza Muffins 6 of 7
    Pizza Muffins
    Chloe was on the kitchen floor playing with one of the muffin tins and it gave me a genius idea: Pizza Muffins! Why, you may ask? Why not! Pizza is crunchy, cheesy, delicious, totally kid-friendly and when it's cooked in the shape of a muffin, it just adds a cool twist to the same old slice that you're used to.
  • Quilt Pizza 7 of 7
    Quilt Pizza
    Planning a kid's birthday party always seems like an easy feat 4 months before the big day. Then, before you know it, you're a few weeks out and actually have to come up with those new and fun ideas to keep everyone entertained. It can be daunting to say the least. While I'm totally game for ordering a few pizzas and calling it a day, this Quilt Pizza is much more exciting, easy to make and a great way to get all your guests involved. It becomes an activity in and of itself.
