Personalized Frozen Pizzas

Delivery and take-out pizza can get expensive, so I pick up plain frozen pizzas and we top them off at home with fixings that everybody likes. I also make my own pizza, and we all prefer that, but frozen is great for activity-filled evenings when dinnertime can quickly get lost in the shuffle. The kids really enjoy choosing and adding toppings to their own section of pizza.

Hands-On Time: 15 minutes
Ready In: follow package directions
Yield: 16 slices


    2 large frozen pizzas
    1/2 cup ham chunks
    1/2 cup pineapple
    1/2 cup green pepper
    1/2 cup black olives
    1/2 cup assorted fresh veggies
    1/2 cup diced ham
    1/2 cup extra cheese, shredded
    1/2 cup anchovy stuffed olives
    1/2 cup pepperoni
    1/2 cup diced chicken, cooked


  1. Set ingredients out and let everyone customize there own slices.
  2. Bake according to package directions, slice and serve.

*Ingredient Tips
There's already cheese there, but a little extra sprinkled over the toppings acts like a glue to keep them put while baking, and especially after. Using milder cheeses like Monterey Jack and Mozzarella is best when you're adding other toppings. If you're doing extra cheese, cheddar, Parmesan, bleu, goat and the like are tasty and different ways to top your pizza.

Meat and seafood needs to be cooked before adding to a pizza. Smaller chunks cook faster and are less likely to pull off mid-bite than larger slices. Anchovies, bacon, beef, ground beef, Canadian bacon, chicken, ham, salami, sausage, shrimp, pepperoni and others are all great on pizza. One of our favorites is chicken tossed with barbecue sauce.

Most vegetables are fine uncooked, but some can turn the pie into a watery mess. Things like peppers and broccoli should be cooked lightly and drained well before being added. Pineapple is awesome, but also needs to be drained very well. Mushrooms are great, but can also benefit from a quick toss in a pan prior to going on to the pizza.
