Pizza is one of those dinners that is in constant rotation in my house. I whip up the dough pretty quickly, give it about an hour to an hour and half to rise, prepare my toppings and ta-da dinner is ready!! What I love about pizza for dinner, is how customizable it is. For veggies, I always use whatever I have on hand which could be green peppers, black olives, mushrooms, tomatoes, and/or spinach. I happened to have leftover boiled chicken from a soup I made a couple days ago so, I shredded that and added some buffalo sauce for buffalo chicken pizza.

I love making pizza dough at home. In just a few basic steps and some patience to let the dough rise, you get a beautiful fluffy ball of dough. Sometimes ill add garlic powder or dried herbs like oregano to give it a little zest. This is the same basic dough recipe I use for 2 normal larger-sized pizzas. For the individual sized ones, I divided the dough into 6 smaller dough balls. If you want them even smaller (which I have done many times,) I would divide the dough into 12 pieces!

As for the sauce, I usually use the jars of traditional tomato pasta sauce, or canned tomato sauce or you can make homemade if you prefer. For the cheese, ill shred a block of mozzarella, or use pre-shredded mozzarella or even the Italian four-blend (Mozzarella, Provolone, Romano, and Asiago.)
