Homemade Beats TakeAway any Time!
How many times have we opted for fast food for lunch or dinner instead of cooking? There’s no telling how much money we’ve spent on that one meal that easily becomes a few (or more) meals a week.
Instead of picking up that telephone and calling for delivery pizza, get the family together and make one at home.
Making homemade pizza can become a great new family tradition. Choose a day of the week when everyone can get together and enjoy the experience.
You can even pretend that you are in a real Italian eatery and go all out by decorating the dining room table to resemble a pizzeria.
The best thing about homemade pizza is picking the toppings. Since it is your personal pizza, you can have as many different toppings as your heart desires.
It’s a chance to raid the cabinets and the fridge to find good stuff to top your creation.
How will you prepare the crust? Now, this step can be easy or an adventure. If you wimp out and go easy, you can use an already prepared crust from the store like Pillsbury pizza crust in the pop open can or a Boboli pizza crust.
It you want to treat the family to a high time of flour and dough, choose to make your own crusts. With your own, the size of the pizza can be customized for each person in the family.
Making your own dough crusts will also make use of those handy pantry staples. You can find a classic pizza dough recipe on the Internet and in just about any cookbook, so find one that you like and go to it.
When the dough is ready, shape it into a circle of appropriate size. Create a rim on the dough so that the sauce won’t bubble over onto the oven rack.
Now comes the fun part. The dough is ready to be dressed to the hilt.
For the sauce, we’ll let you slide and use the store bought kind if you wish. Spread the sauce over the dough and be sure to cover it to the rim.
Next, top the pizza sauce with your favorite cheeses. It’s more economical to purchase a block of cheese and use a grater to slice it for pizza toppings.
Those already shredded bags have only two or three cups in each which is not going to go the distance for an entire family. Besides, fresh cheese melts better.
Want to have even more fun with your family pizza creations? See who can make the wackiest pizza.
Throw a little leftover chicken or hamburger on top. How about jalapenos? They are good for those who like it hot.
Don’t forget the spices. It wouldn’t be a pizza without oregano, basil, and some thyme.
If you have at least two baking stones or pizza trays, you can make more than one at a time. Everyone can help to clean up while you wait for dinner to be ready. When the timer goes off, Bon ApetÍt!
If there are leftovers of your pizza, enjoy them tomorrow morning for breakfast!
