Pizza Night!!!

We try to have a weekly "make your own pizza night". The kids love it, even the picky ones, because they get to design their own! Have fun with it! Its a quick fix for a busy night's dinner! A couple of the finished products:

Here is What we like to use for our toppings: (we usually have pineapple, too, but I forgot to pick some up from the store!)

Make your own pizza night:
Boboli pizza crusts ( I like to use the personal size ones, so we can all make our own! You could also make homemade pizza dough if you'd like, but that would take the "quick" part out of the equation!)
pizza sauce - this you can buy premade, but I like to make my own: just take a can of tomato sauce and add garlic salt, italian seasoning, and salt and pepper to taste and mix together.
Cover the crusts with pizza sauce, cheese and the toppings of your choice and bake at 450 degrees for 8 minutes. Enjoy with some garlic bread and a green salad!!
Cheese suggestions:
colby jack
Topping suggestions:
green peppers
green onions
I'd love to hear about your families creations.....
