Cheater's Homemade Pizza

Though I'd love to make my own pizza dough every time I have a hankering for pizza, that doesn't always cut it in the "quick weeknight meal" category. Especially if I end up making Andrew put the pizzas together! Plus, you may remember from this pot pie recipe how much I appreciate an easy meal.

I love Boboli breads. Nonnie and my mom tell me I'm pronouncing it wrong - I say "Bub-oh-lee" and they say "Bahba-lee". I'm not sure which way is right, but they are yummy. I recently picked up a two-pack of the large whole-wheat pizza crusts so that Andrew and I could have pizza for dinner with leftovers for lunches.
For this round of pizzas, I went with simple ingredients - homemade sauce, shredded cheese, pepperoni, and sliced onion.

I made an Italian Feast a few days before, so I had sausage left from the sauce. I cut it into coins for Andrew's pizza. (See the giant pot in the background? It's yummy sauce!)

To make the pizzas, simply spread sauce to about 1" from the edge of the pizza. Top with shredded cheese, pepperoni, onions, sausage, and any other toppings you can think of. Sprinkle a little more cheese on! I like to add "pizza seasonings" - oregano, basil, parsley - but it's definitely optional.

I don't like sauce, so you can see my pizza on the right - I just drizzle a tiny bit of olive oil over the crust.

Bake according to the package directions - I think mine was 425 for 10 minutes. An easy weeknight dinner with minimal effort, plus plenty left over for lunches the next day!

that is nifty..I have never tried pizza at home. Looked complicated to me...but maybe this will be good way to start.
