Making Some Pizza – Yumo!

Lately, my family and I have been making homemade pizza– Yumo!  Most of the time we buy the dough in our local supermarket – usually found near the deli, dairy and bakery departments.

We’ll add fresh tomatoes, homemade sausage, tossed salad, different cheeses – or go cheese-less.  Add sauce, fried onions, peppers and any left over veggies.  It’s nutritious, inexpensive, filling, easy, goes great with soup during these cold winter nights and just plain old delicious!

Have fun and remember kids of all ages could help – and – you can prepare the pizzas ahead of time and just pop them into the oven to have a meal ready in a flash!

Maybe on of you will be daring and try a Fried Egg Pizza – ??
