Invest in a pizza stone
There are a few kitchen “extras” that I feel are worth the money and space they take up. Since we typically make pizza once a week, I decided a pizza stone might be worth it. I purchased one just like this from Amazon, for such a great price! And now I can’t believe I waited so long! This one kitchen product was a big game-changer for our pizza nights. It creates the perfect slightly crisp crust and gives us a really even bake that I could never achieve using a cookie sheet. You should own one!
Pizza dough with no rise time? Yes, please!
I’ve made a lot of dough (bread dough, not money) in my life, but this is my favorite, most versatile recipe. It’s simple, flavorful, and my favorite part is I don’t have to wait for any rising. That means I can whip up pizza with homemade dough in just a matter of minutes. There’s no tricky rising, punching, covering and waiting for more rising, guessing when the dough is ready, etc. It’s seriously the best.
Start a Family Pizza and Movie Night!
If you don’t already have a weekly family pizza and movie night, give it a try! Here’s why we love it. First, it get’s your family out of your TV/movie rut. If you’re like us, our kids want to watch the same movies over and over and over again. We like to try new movies from the library, so it’s FREE! Second, it’s an activity we can do together as a family and everyone enjoys it. No matter your age, watching a fun new movie is always a treat! Lastly, making pizza is a family event and it creates a night where I don’t have to plan dinner. We like to mix it up with toppings, but the basics stay the same, so it requires almost no thought on my part. Yay for me!
