One of my families newest favorite dinners is homemade pizza. We used to be all about those frozen or take and bake pizzas that you can purchase at the grocery store. But since meal planning, I’ve decided to switch up our pizza nights a bit and make our pizzas from scratch. Not only is homemade pizza delicious but it is also a fraction of the cost of take out.
