Quick Pizzas

The first time I ever remember having pizza I was 6 years old.  My dad had taken me to a Pizza Hut and for some reason it was just he and I.  As we sat enjoying our pizza there was a flurry of activity from a film crew there for some unknown reason.  And Mary Hart from Entertainment Tonight was there.  It was a new show and I remember being star struck by all of the activity and when we got home my dad tried to find the show on television so we could see if we had made it on the air.  To this day, I still think about that when I eat pizza for some reason.

I love pizza, who doesn’t?  But everyone seems to have their own preference when it comes to toppings and that’s the beauty of making personal pan pizzas, you can pick what you want precisely.  So at our house, we make pizzas individually.  And this is such an easy meal to make when you get home from work.  I leave the dough out when I leave in the morning and come home and all I have to do is open the spaghetti sauce and set out bowls of pepperoni and peppers and onions or the list goes on and on.

The recipe below is for one pizza, you obviously can double and triple it up from there.
