Homemade Pizza Ideas

Homemade Pizza, what a treat!
With a few fresh ingredients and a little time you can make a great, nutritious and delicious pizza.

The photo on the left above shows the ingredients for one of my homemade pizza ideas.  When making whole wheat bread I used some of the dough to make this pizza crust.  The thin sliced Health Kick tomatoes are from my garden.  In the skillet I sauteed peppers and onions from my garden then added free range chicken raised on our farm.  I chose Monterey Jack cheese to top this pizza.  The small dish on the right contains olive oil and crushed garlic.

First brush the crust with the garlic oil
 Sprinkle a small amount of grated cheese on the crust
Place tomato slices over the cheese
Again sprinkle another small amount of cheese over the tomato slices
Next add the sauteed mixture and top with remaining cheese.

Bake in 450 degree oven until cheese is melted and crust is slightly brown.

Homemade Pizza Ideas:  Use your imagination.  Choose your favorite toppings ( peppers, herbs, onions, pepperoni, sausage, olives, chicken & pineapple, garlic, etc.) in the combination you enjoy.  Use tomato sauce or sliced fresh tomatoes. Choose your favorite cheese or cheeses.  Purchase a crust or make your own. Get the kids involved.  Have a pizza party, let everyone help add their favorite toppings.  Enjoy your homemade pizza!
