Make Your Own Pizza Night

Usually, on a Friday night, we have pizza. Usually, it’s a homemade pizza, and usually, I make all of it.
However, tonight, I decided to change things up a bit to include the rest of the family in the “adding the toppings segment.  I’m hoping that this will prompt some interest in learning how to cook.

I prepped the toppings (and if I had thought about this earlier, I could have had the kids help with this too.   Well………next time they can!)















I’ve been craving a Margherita pizza for the past week.  So I have Roma tomatoes and fresh Basil






For the husband who loves BBQ chicken pizza









The kids decked their pizzas out first.  My daughter likes a little extra on hers, such as the tomatoes and olives.  My son chose only sauce and cheese, which is interesting that he’s ok with having cheese on his pizza, but he won’t eat it alone or drink milk.  But cheese on a pizza is ok.


IMG_3958Kevin decided to make his pizza 3/4 BBQ chicken and 1/4 using regular sauce, green peppers, red onions and sausage.






I may need to make extra dough for the next time so he can have two personal pizzas the way he likes.

  1. Looks delish and a fun way to get kids in the kitchen. My fav is chicken pizza, yum! Sounds like you guys had fun! It’s great getting the kids involved with making dinner, though can be challenging, it teaches them team work and cooking skills. Then the best part is trying it out of course, I think it gives them a great sense of pride! : )

  2. What Recipe do you use for your dough? I need a good one. How long do you cook it for and at what temp? 🙂 You could do a great cooking blog! Just sayin’… 🙂 ~ Bobbi – Apron Talk
