I love pizza. It's one of my favorite foods both to eat out and make at home. I also love that I can get all kinds of pizza dough at the supermarket, which makes my life a lot easier. I also love the pre-made pizza crusts available at the supermarket as well. Here are some of my favorite homemade pizza creations:

White Pizza (always a classic)
3 cloves garlic minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons Italian seasoning or fresh basil
1 onion thinly sliced
1 to 1.5 cups shredded cheese (either Italian Blend or Mozzarella)
pre-made pizza crust or premade pizza dough

Bake the pizza crust according to package directions. Drizzle with olive oil. Top with the Italian seasoning and garlic. Add the cheese. Add the onions.

Bake at 350 until the cheese has melted.

Spicy Asian Style Grilled Chicken Pizza
1 package thin-sliced chicken breast
2 tablespoons steak seasoning
pre-made pizza dough or crust
2-3 tablespoons spicy chili sauce (enough to cover the pizza dough, this is like the tomato sauce)
1/2 bell pepper sliced
1/2 cup mushrooms sliced
1/2 cup bean sprouts
1/2 cup green onions chopped
1 handful of fresh parsley chopped
1 to 1.5 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese

Cook pizza crust according to package directions. Season chicken with steak seasoning and grill on tabletop grill.

Once the pizza crust has finished baking (or has at least partially baked) add the chili sauce. Slice the grileld chicken. Add the cheese and top with the chicken, bell peppers, mushrooms, sprouts, green onions and parsley.

Bake until the cheese is melted!

they're both awesome and extremely easy to make! Sometimes if I want to have a little get together, I buy a couple of those packages of the pre-made crusts and make my own little pizza buffet!
