Tonight is most definitely a pizza night.

I thought tonight would be a great night to bring back an old favorite – and this recipe is one of my favorite creations ever.

I am a firm believer that pizza should be included in every weekly meal plan & making your own pizza dough can make that dream a (much healthier) reality.

Making your own pizza at home is a great way to stay on track -> making your own dough, moderating the cheese and adding lots of veggies makes pizza a really fun  and healthy meal!
