I don’t know about you, but pizza isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when I think about baking. It is, however, one of the first things that comes to mind when I think about eating.
I love pizza. Violet loves pizza. Everybody loves pizza, don’t they? I mean, how can you go wrong with bread and cheese?
And so our little family (Uncle Dave and Aunt Christine included – remember them? The folks who can tell whether pudding has been added to a cake mix?) set out to whip up a bunch of pizzas using ready-made pizza dough.
What you need:
As many tubes of ready-made pizza dough as you want pizzas. We bought 4
Pizza sauce. We bought 4 jars of Ragu pizza sauce.
A smorgasbord of ingredients so everyone can specialize their pizza.
Suggestions: Pepperoni, sausage, anchovies, Canadian bacon, green peppers, red peppers, mushrooms, olives, onions.
You can make mini pizzas with smiley faces using pepperonis for eyes and a red pepper slice for a mouth. Get creative! The little kids love this and so did the adults. It made for a fun pizza party. In fact, I had so much fun I forgot to document most of it with my camera.
Here’s how our pizzas turned out. So we’re not the best pizza stylists, sure, but they tasted great.
