Tip if using classic crust: For a crispier crust, prebake crusts 5 minutes, then add toppings; bake pizzas 7 to 9 minutes.
Feeling tropical? Substitute pineapple tidbits and thin-sliced deli ham, and bake as directed.
Be bold! Substitute a thin layer of barbecue sauce in lieu of red sauce, top with your choice of meat and cheese, and bake as directed. Or coat chicken chunks in spicy barbecue sauce for quick and zesty buffalo pizza!
From cute to cuter: Use a small heart-shaped cookie cutter or paring knife to cut pepperoni slices into adorable hearts to adorn your pizza.
Go gourmet! Extra special toppings make extraordinary pizza. Try artichoke hearts and shrimp, roasted potato chunks and braised beef tips, or eggplant sprinkled with Parmesan cheese.
Blushing pizza: Use red meats and veggies, such as pepperoni, red bell pepper, tomato, red chili pepper (use sparingly!), red onion, and diced red potato (keep red skins on). Sprinkle top lightly with curry or paprika for added blush.
Any crust shape works: Try bunny, pumpkin or shamrock shapes for other holidays, or simple individual round pizzas for no holiday at all!
