Pizza Night Fun from Cooking Class

Extra creativity goes well with extra cheese.

With mountains of snow, bitter temps (at least here in New England), and a week of school vacation ahead, no one’s immune to an occasional bout of cabin fever. Whether you’re feeding a group or just a few, individual pizzas with personality are an easy way to put an end to boredom and get everyone involved in meal prep! Try these super simple pizza night ideas from the forthcoming Cooking Class by Deanna F. Cook, or put your own spin on the theme.

Directions: Keep your party simple by starting with store-bought pizza dough. Bring the dough to room temperature, then flatten it on an oiled baking sheet. Spread with tomato sauce and add your favorite toppings. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in an oven preheated to 400° F (200° C). Slice it up and enjoy!
