I know when you think of making pizza, it doesn’t quite sound easy, sounds more time-consuming but I promise when I use to word ‘easy’ I really mean it. This recipe is fast, flavorful, and it’s ready in the half the time it takes to order pizza.

 

My kids are always asking for pizza, always. After our last grocery run, I picked up some yeast, knowing I would be putting it to use sooner than later. This recipe is a great way to let the kids participate in making their own pizzas. It’s so easy and they have so much fun being little chefs.

  

We decided to make two pizzas, a cheesy one for them, and a veggie one for us. I just grabbed whatever fresh vegetables I had on hand and threw them on our pizza. I also added more spices to our crust. There is so much room for creativity, and any flavors you choose. I’ve included the recipe for this pizza, but you can substitute any/all ingredients to make the pizza to your liking.

 

  What you need:

Crust

  • 2-2 1/4 cups flour
