Homemade Pizza night is ALWAYS a hit around here!
I’ve got a little secret…I just don’t love restaurant doughs. Maybe it’s because I make homemade pizzas so often and just prefer my dough recipe (link is below.)
Not only can I make it without thinking about it, it’s super soft, delicious and makes the perfect size pizza-pie for our family.
This Chicken Margherita Pizza is fantastical – all the great Italian flavors…with a little rotisserie chicken thrown on top. It’s perfection and I hope you’ll make it on your next homemade pizza night!
Tip: keep a basil plant nearby to use with all your favorite homemade Italian meals. They grow well with a little water and light and I find them pretty hard to kill! 🙂 If you’re gonna buy a $3 packet of fresh basil, you might as well get a $4 basil plant instead. AmIRight?
