They take very little preparation and you can vary the ingredients as much as you like... plus everyone gets to be creative and make their own! Faces are optional, but I think it's a really neat thing to do.
This will also keep you from being stuck alone in the kitchen while everyone else hangs out in a separate area, which I love. I always end up stuck in the kitchen while everyone else has fun. :P
Step 1: Gather the hardware and software.
- Pizza sauce
- Assorted toppings: olives, pepperoni, onion, pepper, mushrooms, etc.
- Flat pita bread
- Knives for cutting ingredients into shapes
- Cookie sheet for baking
- An awesome pumpkin oven mitt
- An oven set to 450 F
- Your imagination
Okay, I admit that I chose the Don Pepino pizza sauce because the packaging was brilliant... but wow, best pizza sauce ever! It's really tangy and just the right consistency. I did add a little more oregano to my pizza, but I'm an oregano fiend. :D
Step 2: Saucy!
Make sure to leave a little of the crust blank around the edges. Makes it easier to eat and nicer to look at!
I didn't measure how much sauce I put on. Just put as much as you like!
Step 3: Cheesy!
Don't worry about getting it everywhere because it will spread out when it's in the oven. :D
Also - don't feel like you can only use mozzarella! You can use cheddar as well, or a mixture of different cheese. Play around with it!
