Pizza night is a favorite at our house and I know it is for many of you as well. Pizza is one of those foods that everyone seems to love.

One of the things I learned from my friend Jessica is to bake your pizza on parchment paper. Now this is a simply tip and one that a lot of people do, I just never tried it until a few months ago. Now I love it. I have been cooking it a lot like this and it works great. It makes pizza night clean up so much easier.

Another tip for homemade pizza is to make the dough ahead. Most dough can be made early in the day or the day before and refrigerated. I love doing this when I have a really busy day because it makes it much quicker to put together pizza at dinner time.

Making the crusts ahead and partially baking them and then freezing them also works well. All you have to do is remove them from the freezer, add your toppings, and bake them. It is another simple way to make pizza night easier.

And make sure to get your kids involved in the pizza making fun. Kids love to help choose the toppings and put together pizza. Homemade pizza is a great way to get your kids in the kitchen to teach them some cooking basics.

    You have got to try making a Nutella pizza for dessert. We get this for dessert sometimes at an authentic Italian pizzeria located in a mall food court. They sprinkle just a little bit of powdered sugar over the Nutella and it is DIVINE!! The perfect accompaniment to a cup of espresso! :-)

    • I love the chocolate type pizzas like that, but my daughter has a tree nut allergy so we can’t do Nutella. I need to try a different combination though. I bet I could come up with a chocolate version that was nut free. I am going to have to work on that!

    We are planning to have homemade pizza for my daughter’s Birthday this week. I was thinking of how I could cook/ bake them so more than one was done at a time. I was searching your site for idea’s on using the BBQ, but did not find them. Can you tell me what temperature your use and how long you cook them on the BBQ. I thing the dough recipe I have is the same or very similar to your mom’s. We have a gas BBQ. Thanks.

    • I think this may be the post you are looking for. I I wrote this before going gf though. GF crust is stickier and a little harder to work with so now I find it easier to press the dough out on foil and cook it on the foil. Than I flip it remove the foil, top the pizza and finish cooking. I hope that makes sense. I cook it over a medium to medium low. And make the pizzas more like a personal or two person size when grilling them. Cooking them on the grill is pretty quick. Just a few minutes for the first cook than long enough to melt the cheese after you top them. They cook much faster on the grill than in the oven. I hope that helps. And I hope she has a great birthday.
