Do you get it? That entry title shows my true dorkiness. Love it.

We eat veggie pizza once or twice a week. I always have a couple bags of Trader Joe's whole wheat dough in the freezer, just in case. Bonus: if you give the kids a bit of dough and some flour in a big baking pan, they will play on the kitchen floor almost the entire time that it takes to make this easy dinner.

I usually make two pizzas, so we can have lots of leftovers for lunch for the week. One pizza is topped with tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella cheese, caramelized onions and sauteed vegetables (zucchini, spinach and mini heirloom tomatoes.) The other is topped with pesto (Trader Joe's again...obsessed, I know), sauteed tomatoes, caramelized onion and goat cheese.

I cook these in a really hot oven (500 degrees) and often put the dough in for a few minutes without toppings, since I don't have a pizza stone. It helps the dough get a little crispy before putting the toppings on it.

Do you make pizza at home? What combinations do you make?

  1. I just had a great idea for a post...probably better for me than you, but if you feel up to it, I am serious. Share your grocery list and sample meals for a week (snacks too!). I know you eat healthy and are budget conscious. Then, I can just steal all the work you have already done and reap the benefits! Thanks!
