Homemade Pizza

If you haven’t figured it out already, food is an integral part of our family life. Some families go to movies, play sports, or have a family game night together. We cook!

One of our favorite things to cook together is homemade pizza. The kids love it because they get to play with pat and roll out the dough and put on their own toppings. Teacher and I love it because we don’t hear “What’s that? I don’t like that! Can I have peanut butter and jelly instead?”

We made homemade pizza one recent Friday night and I had Princess snap some photos. I was going to have her write the blog post too, but she’s been too busy with homework. Someday though…

Tonight the choices are fairly standard: pizza sauce or garlic olive oil, turkey sausage, turkey pepperoni Princess and Angel Face don’t eat beef or pork so we use turkey products most of the time, mushrooms, red peppers, black olives, and mozzerella and parmesan cheese.

  2. The pic of her eating the cheese reminds me of my daughter when we make pizza, production stops when she gets to the cheese stage. A pizza toppping we like is chorizo, feta, touch of rocket and a drizzle of balsamic syrup.

    • James,

      Chorizo is one of our favorites around here but I’ve never combined it with feta. What sauce do you use with that combination, or does the balsamic serve as a sauce?

      Thanks for the pizza suggestion! I hope you’ll stop by and comment often. 🙂
