Pizza Bar

Who doesn’t like pizza?  With a family of 5 I have found it is so hard to please everyone.  So, we came up with the fun idea to do a Pizza Bar whenever we want a quick easy meal.  It is a fun activity for the kids too!  They love to participate by building their own masterpiece.  In the photos we used flat breads.  I personally like using Pita bread.  Don’t forget to split the Pita bread in half.  It makes all the difference!

TYPES OF PIZZAS:

  1. Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza
  2. Margherita Pizza
  3. Sausage and Pepperoni Pizza

Ingredients:

  • 1 Chicken Breast (depends on amount of people) ***I like to boil my chicken for this recipe.  It usually takes about 20 minutes.***
  • 3 Pieces of fried bacon (thick cut)
  • 1lb Crumbled sausage cooked
  • Pepperoni (I buy the package in the pizza prep area at the grocery store)

***You can use left over meat or pre-cook it ahead of time and put it in the fridge until you are ready to make the pizzas.  I usually make it in the morning and store it until dinner.***

  • 4tbsp Basil cut into ribbons
  • 3 small tomatoes cut into slices
  • 1/4 cup chopped white onion
  • Olive oil (enough to drizzle and brush on flatbread/pita
  • Garlic powder (enough to sprinkle on each flatbread/pita
  • 2-4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Red Pizza sauce (pre-prepared is fine)
  • White pizza sauce (pre-prepared is fine)

 

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees for flatbread.  Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees if using Pita Bread.
  2. Cook Meats or get meat from fridge where you stored it.
  3. Chop onion, basil, and tomato.
  4. Drizzle each flatbread/pita with 1tbsp olive oil and brush to cover bread.
  5. Sprinkle each piece of bread with garlic powder.  You don’t need a lot.

*****Pre-bake flatbread for 2-3 minutes at this point and then continue. Do not pre-bake Pita bread.*****

Build Your Own Pizza

***DO NOT BAKE FRESH BASIL.  Sprinkle it over pizza right after you pull it from the oven.***

  1. Spread 1-3tbsp (depends on how much you like and if you used flatbread or pita bread.) of sauce  on bread.  ***No sauce on the Margherita Pizza***
  2. Sprinkle desired amount of cheese onto bread.
  3. Add desired toppings.

****Put flatbread/pita in oven for 10 minutes.****

This will make a thin cracker like crust.  Every oven is different so please use your better judgement when baking these pizzas.
