You know your local pizzeria will take hours to deliver on Super Bowl Sunday, so try your hand at making pizza at home instead. Don't be afraid to make your own pizza crust. Our recipe is quick, simple and virtually foolproof. Your kids can practically do it by themselves too. Make the dough the morning of the Super Bowl, and then, come halftime, everyone can run to the kitchen and make their own pizzas. No fighting over who wants what on which half of the pie!
What you'll need:
Your favorite pizza or spaghetti sauce from the supermarket
Mozzarella cheese, sliced into thin slices or shredded
Toppings you all love (cooked, crumbled sausage; chopped spinach; garlic; sliced pepperoni; ham and pineapple; olives; peppers; or just more cheese!)
What you'll do:
Make the pizza dough according to the recipe. You can make it the morning you plan to eat it, the night before, or even freeze it. If freezing, remember to take it out the morning you plan to eat it, so it can thaw by suppertime.
Heat the oven to 500 degrees F.
Divide the dough into individual portions. Let your kids use rolling pins, or just their fingers, to push and stretch the dough into any shape they like. Who said pizza had to be round? Why not make a large, triangular pizza slice?
Sprinkle a cookie sheet with cornmeal to prevent the pies from sticking. Alternatively, you can use a pizza stone.
Carefully transfer the dough to the pizza pan. Let your kids spoon some sauce onto their pies and, using the back of the spoon, evenly spread the sauce around. Top with cheese and the toppings you desire.
Put the pizza in the oven until cheese is melted and bubbling, and the crust has turned light golden. This takes less time than you think.
Eat and enjoy the game!
