Homemade pizza and menu time

I know you see a lot of homemade pizza on my menu lists. There are some nights I just don't feel like cooking a real meal. Easy and quick dinner nights are always my favorite, but easy usually means buying something frozen, already prepared, processed or has 450 ingredients. When I discovered homemade pizza, I was in love.

Now, pizza in any form isn't the healthiest thing ever, I mean, it is cheese, after all. But, making it myself means I know exactly what goes in it, and honestly, I think it tastes much better than frozen pizza, and it's cheaper than take-out pizza. I use a yeastless pizza crust recipe, or you could use a yeast crust recipe. There are so many pizza crust recipes out there, you can look one up and take your pick. And you can essentially put any toppings you want on there to make it a little more healthy. Sometimes we do green pepper, sometimes tomatoes, sometimes spinach, whatever we are feeling that night. The possibilities are limitless.

You can find the recipe HERE.

And here is our weekly menu plan:

Chicken and cheese quesadillas

grilled cheese and hot dogs

Pork stir fry over rice (bumped from last week)

Chicken tacos

Baked chicken breasts with roasted cabbage wedges

Homemade veggie pizza (Superbowl night, DUH! I have no idea what we are doing this night...we may be celebrating with friends and if so, this will get scrapped)

Crockpot lasagna

Grilled chicken wraps with roasted potatoes and spinach salad

Homemade pizza rolls
