fast and easy dinner recipe: 4 square family pizza“Making pizza together is a great way to get dinner on the table while having some fun as a family in the kitchen,” said Julie Hinderks, pizza recipe creator and senior test kitchen expert. “When you start with refrigerated pizza crust dough, it’s easy to roll up your sleeves and join in – from pressing out the dough, to adding sauce, to topping the pizza with cheese and favorite ingredients. People will find there are countless ways to improvise, customize and create a pizza that everyone in the family will enjoy.”
Divide and conquer with this made-to-order pizza. Use Cheddar cheese to section off the refrigerated crust into fourths, and then let each family member customize a square.
