Pizza Night Tips

We have what we call “Pizza Nights”… not nights when we buy pizza .. but instead… nights I make pizza. I make all kinds.. the key here is… quick and easy… I either make the dough ahead or purchase dough at the grocery store… while it doesn’t compare to getting one from a pizzeria .. it does just fine for those nights we want to kick back a bit.


I like to serve a big antipasto salad with it… it makes a perfect meal.

One of the biggest things I get asked is how to get the cheese to be ooey gooey like a pizzeria pizza… I asked a pizzeria owner years ago and his advice has worked perfectly for me ever since..believe it or not there is a simple answer… after you finish putting your toppings on and sprinkle the shredded cheese over the top… spray it lightly with olive oil cooking spray.

I make all kinds of toppings … one of my favorites is mushroom and onions…. I sauté the onions first in a little olive oil… just until they’re soft and remove them with a slotted spoon from the pan onto the pizza.

You can buy shredded mozzarella mixed with Parmesan and Romano cheeses.. which give it great flavor.

When I make Italian sausage or meatballs for a meal.. I cut up a little and put it in freezer bags so I have a topping for pizza without the work on pizza night.

So kick back.. give yourself a break now and then and have a pizza night… one that won’t break the bank and everyone will love.
