Quick Homemade Pizza

Ingredients:

  • Pre-packed pizza crust
  • Jar of tomato sauce (any style including the chunky ones work fine)
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter/margarine
  • 1 teaspoon Olive oil
  • Spices (to taste): garlic powder & oregano
  • Options:
    • White pizza: ricotta and broccoli (no tomato sauce)
    • Hawaiian: pineapple chunks and Canadian bacon or ham
    • Cheese burger: ground beef (browned first) and cheddar cheese (instead of mozzarella)
    • Pepperoni
    • Meat lovers: (meat should be precooked) sausage, ground beef and ham (a great alternative is deli meats)
    • Cheese lovers: Anything but gouda, feta or the pungent tasting cheeses as they don’t always blend well
    • Veggie lovers: broccoli, cauliflower, spinach (goes great with some ricotta as well)
    • Great additions: olives, purple onions, bbq chicken, shredded bbq pork/chicken (can find it pre-cooked), pasta with mozzarella & ricotta, basically… just about anything you can get on a pizza from a shop!

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350F.
  2. In a small bowl, add butter, oil and spices.
  3. Mix well.
  4. On a pizza pan (or cut the pre-packaged pizza crust into half or slices to fit smaller square pans), lay out your crust.
  5. Using the back of a spoon or a pastry brush, add a thin layer of the butter/oil mixture covering the entire crust.
  6. Using a large spoon or ladle, spoon out the sauce and spread it across the crust (go to the edges or leave 1/2 inch from the edge to make it a bit cleaner when eating).
  7. Add your options (remember, these crusts aren’t as “sturdy” as normal pie crusts and sag or break under weight)
  8. Add your cheese.
  9. Place in oven.
  10. Cook till the cheese is melted thoroughly but not burning.
