Pizza. Who doesn’t love some good pizza?! It’s one of my favorite meals. It’s also probably the reason why a lot of us struggle with an expanding waistline, right?
Pizza is so customizable. Did you know November 12th is National Pizza with Everything Except Anchovies Day? I am using my affiliate links in this post and may earn a few cents if a purchase is made through them, but at no cost to you.

SO. What’s your favorite pizza toppings?
6 Ways to Have your Pizza
~> I don’t have to tell you that you can visit just about any grocery store and buy yourself a frozen pizza to reheat at home.
~> You probably have half a dozen or more pizza restaurants and carry-outs (like this one) to buy a hot pizza already made. Our favorite carry-out is Little Caesar’s…well, it’s my 13 year old’s favorite. And, it’s my favorite kind of price: cheap ($5).
And, I don’t have to make and bake it. It’s done!
~> You can make your own pizza dough at home and go for homemade. I love this idea, truthfully, but I haven’t made it a regular part of our family meal plans.
- I’ve made this pull-apart cheesy pizza bread with store bought dough.
- I’ve made this easy english muffin pizza. This makes a nice quick lunch or dinner.
- Make bread machine pizza dough
Bread Machine Pizza Dough
A homeschooling mom shared this Bread Machine Pizza Dough recipe with me and I have yet to try it since it’s so much easier to run down the street to get a Little Caesar’s Hot ‘n Ready which is my son’s favorite pizza, period.
However, I may try this dough recipe for a day when I want to make more than just one type of pizza (pepperoni). I prefer more of a deluxe style pizza which sausage, onion, green peppers, and mushrooms. No one in my home eats pizza that way. My husband likes all meat on his pizza, one son takes all the toppings off (and with it some of his cheese) and our Lil Caesar’s Pizza lover just wants pepperoni.
1 cup plus 2 Tablespoon warm water
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups flour
1 package yeast (2 1/4 tsp)
Add water, oil and salt to bread machine. Dump in flour. Make a well in the flour and pour in the yeast. Start machine on dough setting. When it’s done place dough in a greased bowl and let rise in a warm place for a 30 minutes. Make your pizza. Bake at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes.
~> You can also make a low-carb pizza crust.
Low-Carb Cauliflower Pizza Crust
Low-carb Cauliflower Pizza Crust is something I’d like to try but haven’t yet. This is the crust I need, says my waistline. I’m convinced this is probably a delicious crust. It’s made, afterall, with cheese. My blogging friend and mentor Saidah has made this so I’ll send you to her blog to get the recipe.
