Homemade Pizza Crust

Pizza is a family favorite. Instead of ordering out, why not make it yourself?

Typical toppings include tomato pizza sauce, sliced ham, pepperoni, black olives, onions, green peppers, sausage, pineapple, mushrooms, and cheese. Don’t let this list ingredients limit you. What sounds good to you? If you were calling in your order, what would you get on your pizza?

Photographed is a BBQ Chicken Pizza. It’s topped with BBQ sauce, cooked chicken, saute’d onions, green pepper, jalapeno, and parmesan cheese.

Be creative and add what sounds good to you. Enjoy!
