Three Easy Pizza Recipes

Pizza is VERY popular in our household.  This week I experimented with some fun and delicious pizza recipes that I need to share. 


I declare this to be my favorite entree for all of 2012!   The crust is made out of cauliflower, but you can't great is that?!  I even screwed up the recipe (I forgot to bake the crust ahead of time) and it was still to die for.  Yum!!!  Here's the recipe:  Cauliflower Crust Pizza  Thanks to Connie Vold for the idea.   My picture does not do it justice.

The second pizza is made with a cornmeal crust (yum!).  Cornmeal contains a long list of nutrients. This whole grain is a good source of niacin, thiamine, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, folate and vitamins B-6, E and K. It contains 18 amino acids and valuable minerals such as iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, copper, manganese and selenium.  To be totally honest, this was good but I wouldn't run out to make it again.  Maybe after the cauliflower pizza, nothing could compete.

And last but not least, Chad has been making the family pizza boats once a week.  This week, Gussy picked this for his meal.  As you may remember, everyone gets a turn picking and making a meal, and if it's their night, they get to sit in a special chair.

Pizza Boats

1 fresh loaf of french bread
1 jar Green Mill pizza sauce
1 package pepperoni
12 ounces of mozzarella cheese

Cut the loaf into 6 inch boats.  Add pizza sauce, meat and cheese.  Bake until the cheese is melted.   I can guarantee this is a hit with the kids!

What's your favorite pizza recipe?

Thanks for reading!



  1. I like sound of that second one, but the kids would love the boats.

  2. Yes, the kids LOVE the boats and request them once a week. It's nice to have something they all love (it's rare in our house). Happy St. Patrick's Day!
