Make Your Own Pizza!

A friend of mine asked for suggestions for a Christmas slumber party for her 12 year old daughter and her friends. I did this several times for Amby and Zac's birthday parties and all the kids really seemed to enjoy creating their own pizzas. It is fun for grown-ups, too, though. There are many different toppings you can choose from, but this is basically what I have on hand to make them:

Mini Boboli Pizza Crusts (they come 2 to a pkg)
Ragu Pizza Quick Sauce
Ham or Canadian Bacon
Ground beef, browned and drained
Bell pepper
Mozzarella cheese

Lay the toppings out on the counter assembly-line style, starting with the crust, then the sauce, then add other toppings as desired. End with the cheese. Bake 2 at a time on a cookie sheet at 400 for about 15 minutes.

Gil and I like to eat at Davenport's Pizza in Mountain Brook. We always get ham and pineapple. Tonight I made the homemade version of that for us with Canadian bacon, pineapple, and bell pepper. It was scrumptious. This is fun and easy, and is great to do on a night when you don't have alot of time to cook.
