This past month has been absolutely crazy busy around our house. Not only has my husband Kyle been working long hours at work, but we have been running almost every night with soccer practices and games. Dinner has unfortunately become more of a burden since there has been little time. We slowed it down a little one night and made home-made pizza with new Pillsbury Artisan Pizza Crust With Whole Grain.
My kids all love pizza (of course, who doesn’t?) So I knew this was a meal that would easily be eaten with little arguing. I decided to make pepperoni and green olives for the kids and I, and on the end of the pizza, I thought I would treat my husband to his favorite anchovies.
The Pillsbury Artisan Crust was so easy to use. Found in the refrigerator section of the grocery store, all you have to do is pop open the package and spread out the dough. There was a detail that I almost missed, that you should prebake the crust for a few minutes before spreading on the sauce and toppings. The crust smelled SO GOOD baking. You could smell the whole grains and it made me so eager to try it.
I spread the crust across an 11 inch by 17 inch baking sheet. While I don’t like a thick crust, I was worried when I was spreading it that it would be too thin, but this was not the case. It baked up to a nice 3/4 inch thick crust. It did pull away from the edges of the pan a little, but still baked up perfectly.
Both my Kyle and I were very pleasantly surprised at how quickly the pizza was done. I don’t often make pizza (other than the frozen variety) because it always seems like a time consuming venture, but with the refrigerated Pillsbury Artisan Pizza Crust it was done in a flash. Prebake crust for 8 minutes, top, then bake another 6-10 minutes. What an easy way to make everyone in the family happy for dinner!
We all enjoyed our dinner that night and had very few leftovers (one crust was a perfect size for our family, but my 3 children are still small and don’t eat a lot at a time). I already have a second crust in the refrigerator just waiting to be baked in the near future!
