Spice up pizza night by making your own homemade pizza or flatbread by using a prepared crust and your favorite toppings!
Friday night is pizza or takeout night at our house because by then we're all too tired to think about making dinner. Most of the time we'll make homemade pizza or flatbread because its so easy. Plus, we can make whatever flavor we're in the mood for!
I've never made homemade pizza crust because living in NJ I can purchase amazing crust from our local pizzeria or buy it frozen from my local grocery store.
Most stores now sell refrigerated or even pre-made crusts that you can use too. Here are some of our favorite topping varieties along with different types of pizza and flatbreads.
From regular crust, deep dish, Keto friendly, and even those using french bread, I'm sure you'll find a new favorite!
