Semi-Homemade Pizza made with Pillsbury Pizza Crust

I’ve been swamped so my future daughter-in-law has been helping me out in the kitchen. Yesterday she tackled making her first pizza. Sure, it wasn’t from scratch, she had a little help from Pillsbury for the crust, but still, she did a great job!

It was easy though because we received a Pillsbury gift pack with everything needed to make up a great pizza. The kit included a chopper for the vegetables, plus storage containers for the leftovers, a pizza pan, a coupon for a Pillsbury Artisan Pizza Crust, an oven mitt, and more.

My store was out of the Artisan crust so we opted for a Pillsbury thin pizza crust. Something went wrong in the unrolling so La asked for some help. No worries, I just reformed the cough into a ball, rolled and stretched until it was thin while I repaired the holes that popped up now and then by pinching the dough together, until we had a nicely homemade looking pizza crust.

Pillsbury Pizza Dough - quick and easy dinner

La popped it in the oven to precook while she prepared the vegetables and cheeses for the topping. When the dough was partially cooked, she pulled it out of the oven and brushed it with garlic infused oil (purchase the chopped garlic in oil in your produce section) and then covered the dough with some prepared pizza sauce (or you can make my OAMC Pizza Sauce recipe) and three cheeses – mozzarella, cheddar, and feta. Then she added fresh baby spinach, chopped tomatoes, scallions, and black olives (on my side only), and topped it with freshly ground Italian seasoning.

This vegetarian-friendly pizza took about 10 minutes longer than the dough called for to cook and it came out light, but it tasted delicious! It will reheat beautifully for lunch or dinner today.

Pillsbury Artisan Pizza Crust has 16 grams of whole grains per serving. You’ll find it in the refrigerated section of your local grocery store.
