Friday Night Pizza

Many people enjoy ordering pizza on a Friday night. It’s affordable, fills the family and no one has to cook. We just can’t seem to find a good pizza place to order from in Florida. It stinks!

That’s why I usually make homemade pizza on Friday nights. It’s still affordable and fills the family, but I DO have to cook. It is quick and yummy!

Publix makes it easy with these pizza doughs already flattened out! Amazing.

Pizza

Ingredients

  • 2 packages of pizza dough(I buy the ones already flattened out from Publix.)
  • olive oil
  • 2 cans of tomato sauce(I buy plain tomato sauce, but you can buy a can of pizza sauce if you prefer)
  • salt and pepper
  • crushed red pepper
  • oregano
  • shredded or whole mozzarella(If whole slice thin)
  • grated pecorino romano cheese
  • pepperoni
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced small
  • 1 package of mushrooms(I prefer baby bella because they have a lot of flavor), rinsed and diced small
  • 1/4 of an onion, diced small
  • 2 cloves of garlic sliced

Directions

  1. Lightly oil the pizza pan and then stretch it out a little to the size of the pan.
  2. Drizzle a little EVOO on the dough.
  3. Spread as much sauce as you’d like.
  4. Sprinkle on a little pepper, crushed red pepper and oregano.
  5. Add the mozzarella and grated cheese. (You could keep it as simple as that or add your favorite topping.  I usually do a pepperoni pizza for the kids and a veggie pizza for Matt and I.)
  6. Saute green peppers, mushrooms, and onions.  Add sliced garlic in the end with a little salt and pepper.
  7. Add YOUR favorite topping to the pizza.  Drizzle with EVOO and bake at 450 degrees till it’s nice and crispy!My new oven has a pizza setting which is amazing!  the pizza cooks in a really short time at a high temperature.  It tastes the best like that.

Enjoy!

I'm a stay at home mom and my life revolves around feeding my family of four. I love to cook for my husband Matt and two boys(Matthew-11 and Dominick-9). I'm not good at entertaining big crowds. That makes me nervous! I TRY and cook healthy meals, and I TRY to buy organic. Matt likes almost everything except for olives, mustard and fancy cheeses-everything I love)! So I try to find recipes without those ingredients or sneak them into the food I make and then he picks them out... And when he likes something, he has no control. Can't stop. Won't stop! But he really tries to make good choices in what he eats. In the last five years or so we both have made changes for the better in our diet. Matthew eats very little and is very picky. It's hard to watch him eat cause he's always picking! My mom get's so annoyed watching him eat! I was the same damn way as a kid. I tortured my parents by becoming a vegetarian for 7 years! I still can't eat all meat. I'm picky. Dominick loves almost everything! And when he loves it, you know it. It's all over him and the floor. Unlike Matthew. Not a single crumb.... I am 100% Italian-I think.. I grew up in Long Island and always ate really great food!!! While the other kids in school were bringing Lunchables or buying lunch, I was eating a chicken cutlet sandwich! My mom is an amazing cook. Much better than me. I have to pull recipes and follow them. She just whips stuff up in minutes and its amazing! And my dad loves all of her food, and all food in general! Except if its too healthy, like salmon.... Most of the time when he's eating his eyes are closed. He says he can taste it better that way... My sisters both live in Long Island and our conversations usually consist of food, fashion, beauty or kids. Ali is similar to my mom. She whips up delicious meals. And they are usually healthy and light. She says she doesn't eat carbs, which is a lie. Every weekend shes at the pork store picking up twisted Italian bread, sausages, and ravioli. Her eyes light up when her 2 year old Joseph eats. Her goal in life is to feed him. And she hates casseroles. Refuses to make them. Lol Jen is very busy as a dance mom with her two girls. But when she gets in the kitchen, watch out! She cooks up a storm. Her salads are the BEST ever! Usually, it's accompanied with steak and rice or fried chicken cutlets! And there are leftovers for the whole week. The goal of my blog is to share some of my family's favorite foods. I'll let you know what works out well and not so well for me when it comes to feeding the fam!
