I can’t think of a more versatile recipe than pizza. You can top it with vegetables or meat. You can use a traditional tomato based sauce have some fun with pesto or another sauce. You can also transform it into a dessert pie.
Pizzas can be personalized based on your tastes. If you haven;t tried making a pizza, here’s an easy to follow recipe from The Pampered Chef. We have a pizza stone with them and it’s helped us make some delicious pies.
