It’s easy to make your own pizza and the creative possibilities are endless. Just think of the money you can save using ingredients you already have.
Have you ever had a food or meal you just loved only to eventually become sick of eating it? That has surely been me several times over. But what I’ve noticed is that I never become sick of eating pizza.
Could it be those endless combinations that can turn the pizza into a completely different meal every time it’s made? I think so.
And, whether you like a thin crust like me or a traditional thicker crust is completely your choice. Elevate your homemade pizza skills by making it any day your way.
SAVE MONEY AND ENJOY HOMEMADE PIZZA
I have noticed that the cost of pizza is on the rise at the pizza shop’s in my area. And, if you have dietary restrictions like me, then that cost is even higher. So, why not develop a new gourmet pizza making skill and tantalize your taste buds?
For the base, you can purchase your pizza dough ready made either pre-packaged or frozen. I especially like the gluten free Udi’s brand or the gluten free sour dough Ugly’s brand found in the freezer section at my local health food store.
You can even buy dough ready to roll or make your own dough from scratch.
Challenge yourself when deciding on your pizza toppings. Have a look inside your refrigerator first to see what needs to be used up. This can be raw vegetables that are past their peak and/or little bits of left overs.

*Frozen diced peppers can also be used in pizza making. Thaw first or warm in pan over low heat a few minutes, then pat dry. They do not have to be cooked first.
*Frozen sliced mushrooms can be used. Thaw first or warm in pan over low heat a few minutes. Pat any remaining moisture dry using paper towel.
