Home made pizza is really easy and fun to make. You can either use a  food processor or bread machine but this recipe is done by hand. Pizza is an ideal quick dinner, if you have ample supply of ready made crust in your freezer and have simple toppings on hand, your family can have a decent hot meal..

You can adapt any pizza recipe to your own taste with varied topping. However you have to follow the method properly to get perfect pizza. Balance of the pizza sauce can be kept frozen for later use. The topping ideas  for pizzas are endless, you can choose cooked chicken, seafood, minced meat, tuna or hot dog together with pineapple, olive, mushroom, eggplant and many more.  A make- your- own pizza dinner  is a wonderful way to get your family together in your own kitchen.
