Its the start of your three day weekend so why not make homemade pizzas with your family. My children and I love homemade turkey pepperoni and cheese pizza and also chicken, pesto and cheese pizza.
My son and daughter accompanied me to the store to pick up the ingredients. We like to use Boboli pizza crust, mozzarella cheese and a cheddar blend, Buitoni Pesto with Basil, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni and Foster Farms Chicken Breast strips. When we arrived back home, we spread everything out on the counter, turned the oven on and began to prepare our homemade pizzas.
Marinara sauce is included when you purchase the pizza crust. For the turkey pepperoni pizza, my children and I spread the marinara sauce on, then sprinkle a layer of mozzarella cheese and then a layer of cheddar. Lastly, we place about 8 – 10 pepperoni slices on top of the cheese. Then place it right in the oven.
For the chicken, pesto and cheese pizza, we prepare it similar to the other. We spread a layer of pesto sauce directly on the crust, not holding back on the pesto sauce. Then of course we pile on the cheese and cut up the chicken breast in 1/2 in. size pieces. Sometimes we even throw some klamato olives on top.
The pizzas were a total hit. They were delicious and it was a team effort. How have you kicked off your 3 day weekend?
