I've never made pizza at home, but am keen to - as my wife says it is easy. Have you ever made it at home - what toppings did you have and how was it? Care to share the recipe? And what do you prefer= homemade or ordered pizza??!!

My personal care assistant made me a BBQ chicken pizza, with peppers, mushrooms, and two kinds of cheese! I was in pizza heaven and, yes, it was pretty easy. Based on that experience, I would say homemade is better.

you can either start with frozen bread dough or with a breadmaker (which is what we use) and make your own. roll it out and put on your own toppings, then bake it... this fall we hope to make our own panzorottis!

Yup - I should try making our own base. The toppings I guess have endless possibilities!

we do both but since money is tight we make them more then anything lately. we use the pakage pizza crust that you have to mix and roll out and then just add stuff that we like. we add tomato, suages, bacon, peppers, onion, mushrooms, garlic, all kinds of things. then sometimes i do a breakfast one to where i use biscut mix instead and gravy insted of sauce, then scrammabled eggs, ham, onion, all kinds of breakfast stuff. but i love delivery pizza lol no mess

Yup - cost is a major factor. So we rarely end up eatiing pizas - if we make them well, we'll probably have it more often

i usually do this at home especially if i'm really short and budget Ingredients: pan de sal, split in halves 2 tbsps. of pasta sauce for every half-piece of pan de sal chopped onions, optional chopped bell peppers, optional grated cheese Assembling the pizza pan de sal: I don’t recommend ready-to-pour pasta sauce in pouches. If you don’t have a tried and tested pasta sauce, you may this or this. I don’t recommend either that you go through all the trouble of cooking a pot of pasta sauce just so you make make some pizza pan de sal. When you make pasta sauce, make a lot and set aside some to make pizza pan de sal. Chopped onions and bell peppers are optional because home made pasta sauce has enough onions and bell peppers. Add them only if you want some crunch in your pizza pan de sal. Toast the split pan de sal in the oven for about two minutes. You have to pre-toast the bread so that they form a crust on the surface. Remember that unlike uncooked pizza crust, you are using ready-to-eat bread. Unless you toast the pan de sal, they will get soaked with pasta sauce and they will turn soggy and difficult to handle. When you’ve toasted your pan de sal, spread the pasta sauce over them. Top with chopped onions and bell peppers, if you prefer, then add the grated cheese on top. Toast for another minute or just until the cheese melts. Eat as soon as they are cool enough to handle so as not to burn your hands and mouth.

if it would be too costly for you to bake the crust, you could use just a simple loaf of bread. just spread it with pizza sauce, then you could add any topping you like such as pepperoni/ham/or anything that's available in your fridge, top it with pineapples and sprinkle with grated cheese. it's your choice. then put it in an oven toaster.after a few minutes you can enjoy your pizza.
