The art of homemade pizza is not difficult to learn. And it’s so tasty! Check out these favorite pizza recipes and get cooking!
Making homemade pizza is not difficult. I first did it with a Chef Boyardee pizza kit in 1980. Remember those? With the canned cheese? They did the job for kids in the 80s who didn’t have cars and whose parents shockingly wouldn’t buy frozen pizzas but had no problem is a mix and canned cheese. Ahem.
Thankfully those days are passed. Making homemade pizza that rivals the pizzeria takes a little practice, but it’s a skill worth learning. And you can totally do it. I promise!
And will save you from canned cheese on your pizza.Over the years, my family has come to expect pizza on Friday night. I’m not always up to the task, but it’s become clear when EVERYONE jumps in to help make dough or top pizzas, that it’s a weekly ritual they don’t want to pass up.
Will work for pizza is a motto around here.
That is FishBoy19 back in 2002, helping me make pizza. Back then we ate half the batch and froze the rest for lunches. Also, the kitchen was being remodeled. Excuse the mess. 😉
