        When I was little, my dad & I made pizza together every Friday- it was our fun little family tradition. We used the pizza crust recipe from the Better Home & Gardens cookbook. It's super easy...

        2 3/4 to 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
        1 package active dry yeast
        1/4 teaspoon salt
        1 cup warm water (120-130 degrees)
        2 tablespoons cooking oil

        In a large mixing bowl combine 1 1/4 cups flour, yeast, and salt. Add water and oil. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, scraping bowl. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. Stir in as much of the remaining flour as you can. Turn out on a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic (6-8 minutes total). Divide in half. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.

        For pan pizzas, bake in a 375 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until brown, then top with toppings and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes. For thin pizza bake in a 425 degree oven for 12 minutes or until brown, then top with toppings and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes.

        This recipe will usually provide enough dough for 2 small pan pizzas, or one large cookie-sheet sized rectangle pizza.

        Your toppings sound delicious! My favorite is pizza with banana peppers and feta cheese :)

          Jamy - add roasted red peppers and sauteed broccoli rabe to your list - YUM YUM

          make sure the roasted red peppers do not sit in water or oil - lay them on paper towels do dry them out a little bit otherwise the water ruins the cheese / crust.

          as for the broccoli rabe, just steam or saute first and cut in bite size pieces.

          YUM - can we come over?

            Yep! :) Grill all the veggies & meats first. Once those are done, it's time for the dough...

            Spray the dough on one side with Pam Grilling (lightly), then put it on the grill for about 2 minutes with the lid closed. Spray the other side of the dough, quickly put the toppings on the side already grilled, close the lid and leave on there for about 2-3 minutes.

            VIOLA! It's the best pizza you'll ever have. :)

            i've had pizza parties...it is pretty easy to make your own dough and sauce.

            you definitely need to have a pizza stone and one of those wood things to put pizza in and take it out...i think it is actually a good idea to have 2 of them...you can make the pizza on one while a pizza is in the oven and take the pizza out with the other wood thing.

            also, it is fun to just provide the basics...dough, sauce, cheese and have everyone bring 1 or 2 toppings..

            i like:

            sundried tomatoes
            grilled veggies (egg plant, zuchinni)

                  Why must I suffer this way? As soon as I decide to "cut back" aka diet everything sounds so good I must have it? I will not order pizza....I will not order pizza.... I will not order pizza.... OK- I give- where is the phone book!

                  We use the Kraft kits alot of the time and then just improvise by adding some garlic salt, oregano and garlic powder. It makes the crust so yummy!!
