homemade pizza

we love pizza in our house. but it can get so pricey and unhealthy to order it out every time it sounds good. so we've started a tradition of (almost)weekly homemade pizza. it doesn't always fall on the same night, but it's always a fun way to let everyone get involved and be creative with dinner.
well, my sister had the idea to throw a homemade pizza party and it was so fun! we made about 11 pizzas and spent less than $60 on ingredients. in the end we had more pizza than we knew what to do with. we used pre-made dough from trader joes, but it would be easy to make your own, buy a crust, or even use tortillas... i recommend chopping everything before so you can throw the pizzas together quickly. oh, and it helped that she has a double oven... if only we were all so lucky... here's what we made:

bbq chicken
bbq sauce
cut up chicken
red onion
bacon (if you dare)
mozzarella
fresh cilantro
ranch chicken(my favorite)
ranch
mozzarella
fresh spinach
cut up chicken
green onions
chopped tomatoes
a little cheddar on top
veggie
ranch or seasoned tomato paste
mozzarella
artichoke hearts
mushrooms
tomatoes
green peppers
and the regulars
pepperoni
cheese
hawaiian

We just made some on some wheat wraps someone brought us and they were great! I like margherita pizza (sp?) with fresh basil, tomatoes, crushed garlic, and a little olive oil. I put some fresh parmesan on there too.
